Kosi Bay Nature Reserve Kosi Bay Zululand KwaZulu-Natal South Africa

Situated in the wilderness, the lodge offers guests the unique opportunity of exploring a pristine wetland environment in guided canoes and vehicles.

Enjoy swimming at the pristine and isolated Bhanga Nek beach, boat cruises through the 18km lake system and estuarine waterways, birding walks through the ancient Raffia Forest and interaction with the local Thonga people and their historic culture.

Home to the Palm Nut Vulture and Pel's Fishing Owl, the area can be explored by keen birders at their leisure.

Kosi Forest Lodge guests are accommodated in thatched bedrooms, on raised wooden decks, hidden in the sand forest. All beds have mosquito nets. Our unique open-air, reed enclosed bathrooms with the bath and shower sunk into white forest sand has been noted by our guests as one of the highlights of a visit.
