From O.R Tambo, International Airport, Johannesburg you can reach Triton Dive Lodge in Sodwana Bay by :


  1. 1.)     A short domestic flight with SA Airlink to Richards Bay where you can hire a vehicle and then drive the 180km to Triton.  This is the recommended method as there is very restricted public transport in Sodwana Bay and most of the scenic attractions in the area are more than walking distance away.

Alternatively we can arrange a transfer and collect you at the airport, bring you to the Lodge and transfer you where you need to go during your stay with us.

    Sodwana Bay is situated in northern Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. We are approx. 75km south of the Mozambique border. The closest towns to us are Hluhluwe (82km tar road) and Jozini (56km gravel road). Durban is 370km (3,5 hours) south of us and Johannesburg is 640km (7 hours) west of us. Mbazwana village is 4,5 km from Triton lodge.

    Triton Dive Lodge is situated adjacent to The iSimangaliso Wetland Park. 

    Please note there is no beach front accommodation available along this entire stretch of coastline.  The beach front falls within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site and is therefore a protected area.

    When approaching from the Hluhluwe side turn right into the village of Mbazwana, drive past the garage on your left and continue until you reach a T-junction where you turn right. Pass through the traffic circle and keep going for approx. 3,5 km, where you will see our first signboard "Triton Dive Charters 1.3km" on your left, there are two brown signboards and you must turn left at the second one (big one). It is a sand road so if you are not driving a four by four vehicle keep to the right hand road (Go under the Triton Dive Lodge white sign board) and follow the road for 1.3km..

    The road is suitable for 4 x 4 and normal vehicles, During day time look for the thatched roofs on your left and at night you will see a reflective sign with red lettering which indicates that you have arrived.

    Triton Dive Charters and lodge is situated 4.1 km’s from Mbazwane on the Sodwana Bay road +-12 km’s from Sodwana Bay Beach which is about a 10 minute drive from the Triton lodge .
