Kosi Forest Lodge is the only private accommodation in Kosi Bay Nature Reserve. It is a haven of crisp, cool comfort in the sand forests and you will find that treading gently is a natural way of life in this soft sand forest.

Glamping at its best, here you live amongst the trees, surrounded by birdsong. The perfect combination of thatch, tarpaulin and wood, what sets these tents apart is their unique bathrooms with an outdoor shower and deep, wide bath under a leafy canopy. Oil lamps are lit along the forest paths and in your tent as the sun sets, creating a warm glow and connection with the ancient past of this unspoilt land.

The swimming pool overlooks Lake Shengeza where you can while away the afternoon cooling off, sipping on your favourite drink while watching the resident pod of hippos safely below.

The gentle local staff are anxious to please and love to show off the beauty of this pristine part of the earth, be it gliding through a still river in a canoe, bird watching, fishing or taking you snorkelling at the Kosi Bay river mouth. They are only too delighted to pack you a generous picnic lunch or organise a private, candle-lit dinner under the stars at the open fireside. Enjoy your favourite sun downer drink at the pool which overlooks the Lake Shengeza, where hippos grunt and Fish Eagles call.

The lodge is situated in a protected part of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park in Northern KwaZulu-Natal, famed for its diverse birdlife which includes forest, grassland and coastal birds. Palm-nut Vulture and Pel’s Fishing Owl are local delights.
