Its time to escape to Futululu Dreams… a little house nestled in the tranquil indigenous lowland coastal Futululu Forest. If you respect nature and need your space, then you know this is for you!

The Futululu Forest is at the southern tip of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, between St. Lucia and Mtubatuba. Futululu Dreams… is the optimal base from which you will enjoy your day trips to, for example: St Lucia, Cape Vidal, Charters Creek, and the Hluhluwe iMfolozi game reserve.

Futululu is the Zulu word for “under the trees” and well describes these peaceful and natural surroundings to unwind and have a good night's rest after each day's adventure-filled outing. The night air is filled with a symphony of sound emanating from the forest that will peacefully infuse your dreams.

Enjoy your breakfast on the large patio to start your day in a relaxed fashion… interrupted only by a butterfly gracefully drifting by… prompting you to contemplate going on an early morning walk or photo safari.

Time idly passes by while you hone your bird watching skills, spot some of the eco-park's resident endangered Red Data species such as the Samango Monkey and Red Duiker, and become one with the bio-diversity that surrounds you. All too soon your getaway from city life is over and it's time to look forward to your next escape to Futululu Dreams…
