Revamp scheduled for top dive area
Thursday, 01 November 2012
World Heritage Site, Isimangaliso Wetland Park, has announced that Sodwana Bay is being upgraded.

“The upgrade seeks to restore the ecological integrity of this prime beach destination while improving visitor facilities,” the park’s management said in a statement. 

The redevelopment of Sodwana Bay is the next phase in a series of transformations that have taken place in the Park. To date, the iSimangaliso Authority has spent R120m on improving day-visitor facilities and selected accommodation in the park. 

“Sodwana Bay needs serious ecological restoration and is overdue for a complete facelift. Its day-visitor facilities no longer meet the needs of our visitors. We are delighted to be moving forward with new facilities with a similar look and feel to those completed at Cape Vidal, Lake St Lucia and Estuary and uMkhuze,” said Andrew Zaloumis, iSimangaliso CEO.

The upgrade will include the removal of alien vegetation and the complete redevelopment of Sodwana’s day visitor areas including a new gate complex with multiple lanes; the replacement and relocation of existing dive shop/retail, compressor facilities, convenience and food outlets; new community safety and first aid facilities; replacement and new ablutions; improved parking; new signage and park furniture such as picnic tables; and the rebuilding of the craft trading area. Facilities will be disabled-friendly. 

 “Successful change happens with good planning and public input. iSimangaliso encourages constructive suggestions. The many comments already received from people clearly demonstrate a strong conservation ethic and a public interest to protect the integrity of Sodwana Bay as a near- pristine environment,” continued Zaloumis.
