Kosi Bay's cosiest stay

As the only private lodge in the lush Kosi Bay Nature Reserve, Kosi Forest Lodge guarantees guests will experience the best of both the woodland and the wetland worlds of Maputaland with its 16 bush suites blending seamlessly with the surrounding sand-forest.

The St Lucia Wetlands – of which the reserve forms part – is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to crocodiles, hippos and other wetland wildlife. With 11,000 hectares encompassing marshland, swamp and coastal forests, the Kosi Bay Nature Reserve beckons guests to explore its splendour: take a canoe trip or river cruise down the lakes and estuaries, or gallop on horseback through the reserve’s woodland wonderland.

Back at your suite, luxury awaits. The en-suite rooms are raised on a wooden deck, giving you a view of Kosi Lake below. The rooms’ open-air bathrooms are set in white beach sand and shielded within a reed-enclosed boma, allowing you to unwind under a canopy of trees.
