An Enchanted Hiding Place
Deep in the forest overlooking Lake Shengeza lies Kosi Forest Lodge, an enchanting wilderness retreat. Enter a magical waterworld of lakes, Raphia forests and the home of the only fruit-eating vulture in the world. Feel the soft white sand between your toes and the shade of the peaceful forests, listen to the call of the fish eagle, embrace the warm welcome from our staff and know that you have left the stress of your busy life behind.
This upscale 16-bed lodge is located in the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, a World Heritage Site that forms one of South Africa’s top ecotourism destinations. All suites are set on wooden decks. Access to Kosi Forest Lodge requires a 4×4 to navigate the terrain, but once you enter this domain it’s like stepping into another world.
Be sure to embark on a guided forest walk during your stay, a magical excursion into a tropical wonderland.
In the northern reaches of KwaZulu Natal, the final stretch of South African coastline is a wilderness wonderland that is still largely unexplored and unexploited. Kosi Bay is a rich network of lakes that stretches from Lake Zilonde, on the Mozambique border in the north, to Lake Amanzimnyama, in the south. A 4×4 vehicle is required to get to Kosi Forest Lodge alternatively there are twice-daily 4×4 transfers from Manguzi (KwaNgwanasi).
