Excellent location for camping - offers diversity to relax at the bar and chilling next to the on-site swimming pool. Good location for children after a visit at the beach. Pool could be cleaned and maintained more frequent during the day as well as an outdoor shower next to the pool would certainly help to keep it clean. The sanitary/bathrrom for ladies are perfect - for men can be improved though. Overall great service though from a admin standpoint - very professional client servicing by the owners and staff.

Dear Johdi and Ray. Thank you for a very enjoyable time at your lodge & for the overall good service received, also in your restaurant. If it weren't for the bats and the no air conditioner, our rating would be higher. Wishing you great success with your future plans! Mark, Keenan and Inge Loesch.

Hi Inge, thank you for your review.

Kosi Bay Casitas is a bush lodge and have a variety of species of insect and fruit eating bats, some of which are endemic to this area and call our lodge home. As we live on the edge of a nature reserve we have tried to find alternative, humane ways of removing them from some of our chalets. They nest between the outer reed and inner wooden walls and from time to time they do return. We will be replacing all outer walls of your chalet so that we can remove them. All of our chalets are advertised as having fans only, we do however note your suggestion for an air conditioner for this unit.

We are pleased that overall you felt we offered good service for our activities and our restaurant.

Kind regards Ray and Johdi

Short camping stay, locate close to the lake for a brisk walk, transfers to the mouth is worth it. Locals just over crowded the shops so planing your daily routine is crucial to not have to go to town. Using a bakkie is highly recommended but we managed in a SUV

Hi Nico
Many thanks for your review, so pleased you enjoyed the transfer to the Estuary. Town is extremely busy over December, many people shop here on route to Mozambique and Kosi Bay area is also busy over this period. A 4x4 is highly recommended to see the best of what Kosi Bay has to offer. Kind regards Casitas Team

We didn’t stay here, but went to Casitas for lunch. The pizza was amazing - such a pleasant surprise to get a thin crispy pizza so far from home. We liked it so much that the friends we we te traveling with went back again a few days later. Take your swimming costume as there is a pool next to the restaurant.

We were staying around the corner and found a Gem in the middle of the bush. Johdi was very helpful to accommodate us on the Turtle tour (a Must do on your bucket list), 3 Lake boat tour and Kosi Mouth transfers at excellent affordable prices.
Ray was a super driver and tour guide.

As for the Casitas, the restaurant serves the BEST pizzas i have ever tasted.

I would definitely recommend visiting them.
