Lake Sibayi

The information and related images should be verified with the relevant resort beforehand.

Lake Sibaya in theiSimangaliso Wetland Park is the largest fresh water lake in South Africa with a surface area of 77 kmĀ² and an average depth of 13 metres. Lake Sibaya is a drowned river valley lake with a maximum depth of over 40m. Many smaller pans typical of those elsewhere in the area surround the lake. In years of poor rainfall many of these smaller pans dry up leaving Lake Sibaya as the only permanent water in the area where flocks of up to 20 000 waterfowl can congregate. The eastern shores of the lake have very rich dune forest habitat which harbours many of the Zululand east coast species.
