About Kosi Bay Lodge

Kosi Bay Lodge is perfectly situated for guests who want to base themselves in the heart of this pristine area and further explore the region. Just a few hundred metres from the water’s edge of Lake Nhlange, the third and largest lake, Kosi Bay Lodge offers everything an African bush lodge should and more.

Sip sundowners in Nhlange Pub with amazing views and enjoy cuisine with a distinctive local flavour in the cosy atmosphere of the Umdoni Restaurant and Bar overlooking the pool and the sun deck. Two, four and six bedded rustic lodges are comfortably appointed. The structures consist of thatched roofs, treated poles, wooden floors on stilts and reed walls – typically Tonga and Zulu style. Accommodation is rustic more than plush, but the setting and range of activities make a stay well worthwhile.

Full board or self-catering options are available and all chalets have fully equipped kitchens with private barbecues and access to the boma areas. Accent is on comfort, informal service and attention, and guests are encouraged to explore this unique environment by friendly staff who are on hand to assist with information and arranging outings. For the adventurous, there are numerous activities and excursions that fully utilize the many resources available.

Kosi Bay is a place where fishermen can revere their surroundings, with kingfish, queenfish, stumpnose, shad, grunter, mullet and garrick just a fraction of what is available from the waters of this region. While Kosi Bay has such wonders as the two-armed mudskipper fish and the one-armed fiddler crab, nearby Ndumo Game Reserve sports rather larger wonders of the animal kingdom, including rhino, giraffe, warthog, zebra, kudu, nyala and impala, as well as over 400 bird species.

Other day tours include Black Rock, Lala Neck and Bhanga Nek – home to Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s 30 year old turtle research facility – all within easy reach. 4×4 vehicles are recommended.

Great place to stay. Accommodation comfortable with plenty of room. 2 cabins and private swimming pool a bonus. The staff could not have been more helpful.

The lake cruise was an awesome experience and something we will remember for a long time. A suggestion to make the trip more memorable and to educate the visitors is for the guide to tell the clients a little more about the area, what makes Kosi bay an attraction, where does the water fill the lakes. The animals in the lake, a little bit more about the hippos and their inhabitat, the birds and does the different seasons attract other bird species etc. The types of fish you get in the different lakes. When we stop off at Bhanga Nek, tell us about this area and what's around there for the...
