KOSI FOREST LODGE, Isimangaliso Wetland Park
Visit South Africa’s last unexplored wetland wilderness – a unique wetland world of lakes and forests.

Surrounded by ancient sand forests, Kosi Forest Lodge is situated within the iSimangaliso World Heritage Park, South Africa’s last unexplored wetland wilderness. The lodge is privately tucked within a unique wetland world of lakes and forests. Kosi Forest Lodge’s eight thatched forest rooms are raised on wooden decks, and the open-air, reed-enclosed bathrooms with baths and showers sunk into white forest sand are a highlight with guests. The rustic – yet comfortable – room aesthetic provides an authentic ‘back to nature’ experience. You’ll wake up in the morning surrounded by the sounds of the forest’s prolific bird life.

Explore the pristine wetland environment by vehicle, guided canoes and boats and be rewarded by an abundance of birdlife, exciting animal sightings and breathtakingly peaceful scenery.
