About Kosi Forest Lodge

Situated in Kosi Bay Nature Reserve, the 16 bedded luxury Kosi Forest Lodge allows guests the unique opportunity of canoeing the Kosi Lake system. Other activities include snorkeling, beach excursions, boat trips on the Kosi Lakes and Rafia Forest walks.

Home to the Palm Nut Vulture and Pel's Fishing Owl both the Raffia Palm Forest and Sihadla River banks can be explored by keen birders at their leisure. Enjoy iLala Palm wine making and tasting, or savour this Maputaland specialty in our chef's cuisine.

Guests will be accompanied by trained guides in open-air vehicles on all excursions. Kosi Forest Lodge guests are accommodated in luxurious thatched bedrooms well hidden in the sand forest. Our unique open-air en-suite bathrooms have been noted by our guests as one of the highlights of their visit. Mosquito netting lines each bedroom.

Rates include all meals, teas and coffees, a guided canoe trip, a guided walk in raffia forest and a sun down experience. Fees are charged for entering the Kosi Bay Nature Reserve and for using own 4-wheel drive vehicles. The lodge can only be reached by four-wheel drive vehicles, and transfers are available twice daily from the Total Garage in Manguzi.

Kosi Forest Lodge dress code is casual. Please remember to bring sun block, footwear suitable for walking through swampy areas, windbreaker/raincoat, hat, torch and mosquito repellent. Snorkeling gear is provided, but enthusiasts may prefer to bring their own. Kindly note that this is a malaria area. We look forward to meeting you at Kosi Forest Lodge. Please yield to dung beetles.

Safari: Bird watching, exploring lakes and waterways on guided canoes or day trips on motor boat, watching hippos, crocodiles and flocks of flamingoes at sunset is all part of the Kosi Forest experience.

              Both the food and service were wonderful. Outings on the river and forest walls peaceful with cheerful and informative local guides.

              The woods, grasslands, and water are quite beautiful; the lodge - accommodation, food, service are all good - but perhaps a little overpriced.

              We very much enjoyed the setting - the cabins, (and outdoor bathrooms!)etc and the meals were well presented and for the most part delicious.In conclusion, we had a lovely stay but we found it all in all a bit pricey for what was offered.
