A wilderness lodge hidden in Kosi Bay Nature Reserve’s coastal dune forest

Set within the renowned iSimangaliso Wetland Park, Kosi Forest Lodge offers a unique getaway in thatched units, hidden in the sand forest alongside the Kosi Lakes System. Guests can watch hippos and flamingos splashing around in the lake from a swimming pool or a viewing deck shaded by Umdoni trees, or go on guided boat trips to explore the lake systems. A turtle-tracking expedition offers an opportunity to see leatherback and loggerhead turtles, while the bird hide and forest walks open up a birding paradise. The lodge’s sustainability efforts range from investing in large solar energy farms to removing single-use plastics, and guests can delight in conscious culinary experiences with ingredients sourced from ethical suppliers.
