Kosi Forest Lodge Set in a magnificent Manguzi sand forest, right on the banks of the Kosi Lake, the lodge's comfortable thatched bush suites have been carefully positioned to ensure the privacy of guests in this peaceful and tranquil surrounding. The en-suite bathrooms are unique in a way that they are open-air, providing visitors with truly unique nature experience. The rooms are raised on wooden decks with the romantic bathroom being outdoor in a reed-enclosed boma.

The large Zulu Podberry tree is the main characteristic of the main lodge where the comfortable lounge, the welcoming dining room and the bar are located opening onto a large, wooden deck around the tree. The lodge takes full advantage of the region's ideal weather with most meals being served outdoors, alfresco style.

The deck and the Albizia trees make for a most beautiful dining location. The outdoor swimming pool has been built into the floor which can be found at the edge of the lake. Decorated with candles during the evenings, a romantic ambience reminiscent of the wild African adventures from long ago is created at the lodge making for a magical setting in the heart of nature.

WiFi is available in the main lodge area. The lodge's WiFi can be intermittent and rather slow due to satellite connection and is adversely affected by inclement weather.

The beautiful canoe trip on the Kosi Lakes is a particular highlight for guests. While no experience is required, participants canoe along the Sinhala channel, admire the Raffia Palms and enjoy the abundance of colourful bird life around them.

With its 18km long stretch, the Kosi Lake system features many interconnected lakes which are a unique adventure when being explored by boat. The full day boat trip through the lake's channels includes a walk through the Kosi Bay fish traps as well as a picnic lunch and a swim in the sea at Bhanga Nek.

One of the most unusual activities is the turtle monitoring which is available every night between the 15 November to the 15 January. Visitors have the unique opportunity to witness the Giant Leatherback and the Loggerhead turtles laying their eggs in the sand. They return to the Maputuland coastline every year, having swum the incredible length of the entire African continent, and then come back to the beach where they hatched.

Hippos and crocodiles are home in this calm environment basking in the sunshine in and around the lakes and the reserve. The Kosi lake system in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, is recognised as one of the best-preserved estuary systems on South Africa’s Indian Ocean coastline. This region has large lakes which include many inter-connecting channels which drain through a sandy lagoon into the Indian Ocean.
