Kosi Forest Lodge is a private lodge situated in the unspoilt wilderness that is part of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, now internationally recognised as a World Heritage Site. The 16-bed lodge offers comfortable accommodation, fine cuisine and caters for a host of estuarine, beach and wilderness activities. Explore this unique ecosystem by guided canoe, boat trip on the lakes, raffia forest walks or day excursion to nearby coastal beaches. Discover one of South Africa’s best ecotourist destinations.

Kosi Forest Lodge is set in a beautiful sand forest on the banks of the Kosi Lake. The thatched bush suites are carefully positioned to provide guests with privacy and an intimacy with the peaceful surroundings. The romantic en-suite bathrooms are open-air, giving guests a truly unique experience. Guests can relax at the pool with its unsurpassed views of Lake Shengeza.

Kosi Forest Lodge – Accommodation
Main Lodge
A massive Zulu Podberry tree is the focal point of the main lodge with the lounge, diningroom and bar all opening onto a large, wooden deck around the tree. Kosi Forest Lodge takes full advantage of Maputuland’s sultry weather with most meals served alfresco - on the deck or under large Albizia trees. A swimming pool, built into the deck, at the lake’s edge is always a welcome sight. Candles light the area at night giving it a warm, romantic ambience reminiscent of wild African adventures of long ago.
Bedrooms
The thatched bush suites are hidden in the sand forest of the Kosi Bay Nature Reserve providing privacy under the forest’s peaceful canopy of shady trees. The rooms are raised on a wooden deck with a beautifully appointed bedroom, balcony, dressing room and separate bath and shower. The romantic en-suite bathroom is open-air in a reed-enclosed boma. Set in white beach sand and positioned under one of the huge forest trees, guests are guaranteed a truly unique experience.
The bedrooms have low wooden walls with mosquito netting and roll-up canvas blinds allowing for full views of the surrounding forest. Kosi Forest Lodge has become increasingly popular as a honeymoon destination. The honeymoon suite is completely private and allows couples to enjoy the serenity of the surrounding sand forest undisturbed.
Kosi Forest Lodge - Activities
Guided canoeing
The highlight of many guests stay at Kosi Forest Lodge is the canoe trip on the Kosi Lakes. Guests get the opportunity to canoe along the Sihadla channel and admire the magnificent Raffia Palms. The bird life while canoeing is very rewarding. Canoeing is always accompanied by a guide and is included in stays of one night. No experience is required.
Boat trips
The Kosi Lake system is a series of interconnected lakes which stretch over some 18km. The best way to see the system is by boat. Full day boat trips through various sized lakes and channels, include a walk through the famous Kosi Bay fish traps – a must whilst staying at Kosi Forest Lodge, as well as a picnic lunch and a swim in the sea at Bhanga Nek. This activity is included if you stay more than two nights.
Kosi Mouth Visit
This trip is a full day activity and takes just over an hour to drive to the beautiful Kosi Bay Mouth. See how the sea and lakes interconnect in a wonderful swirl of colour, sand and water. There’s great snorkelling with plenty of fish to view all year round. The water is warm and almost always crystal clear. The rock pools along this protected stretch of coastline are a virtual aquarium of brilliant sub-tropical fish. Enjoy swimming in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and soak up the sun along this beautiful stretch of beach, followed by a scrumptious picnic lunch. Limited snorkelling equipment available at the lodge.
Raffia Palm Forest Walk
Enjoy early morning or late afternoon guided walks through the magnificent Raffia Palm Forest. Listen out for the abundant birdcalls and perhaps catch a glimpse of the rare palm-nut vulture, whom we have regular sightings of in the canopy. The raffia palm is the largest palm in the world. This activity is included in stays of one night.
Tembe Elephant Park
Tembe Elephant Park is only an hour’s drive from Kosi Forest Lodge. Guests can enjoy a day game viewing in this 30,000ha wilderness. There is fantastic elephant viewing from the game hides.
Turtle tracking
Turtle tracking is offered every night from 15 November to 15 January. These excursions (including transfers to and from the beach) can last up to 3-4hrs and may return very late. Giant Leatherback and Loggerhead turtles make their way home having swum the length of the continent in a return journey to the beach where they were born. Research has shown that eggs are often laid within meters of where the mother emerged as a hatchling years previously. Guests are able to view these magnificent creatures meters from where she is laying. Utmost precaution is taken to ensure that she is not disturbed.
