Situated in the northern most section of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, the Kosi Bay Nature Reserve is a breath-taking sub-tropical wilderness get-away.
The four connected lakes and the estuary that opens up to the ocean, are perfect for canoeing, boat trips, fishing, snorkelling, hiking, bird watching and horse riding. The Kosi lake system is home to a wide variety of birds and animals including hippos and crocs.
Humpback whales are often seen from the beach on their way to have their calves in the warm waters off Mocambique and during the December and January months, loggerhead and leatherback turtles labour up the sandy beaches to lay their eggs.
Black Rock, Sodwana and Mabibi are near enough for day trips and the chance for some amazing snorkelling and exclusive diving experiences.
For the most perfect Kosi Bay accommodation, the Kosi Bay House is an African paradise. Four private chalets surround a communal open plan lounge, dining, kitchen lodge. A large deck surrounds a sparkling pool. This self-catering accommodation offers African style accommodation at its best. Comfortable beds, fans and mosquito nets make the private bedrooms a quiet cool place to get away from it all, whilst a fully equipped kitchen makes meal times a pleasure. The House is situated in the grounds of the Kosi Bay River Lodge and guests are made very welcome at the restaurant and bar of the Lodge. Kosi Bay House is the ultimate friend and family get-away.
Most areas in an around Kosi Bay are only accessible by a 4X4, including the road to Ponta d’Oura in Mocambique, but if you have a 4X4 be prepared to visit some of the most stunning, pristine beaches on the South African coast. Because of the accessibility of many of the beaches you will find the beaches very private and quiet, sometimes you may be the only people on the beach.
