The 2 nights we spent at Kosi forest Lodge were really nice! The food was great and the staff very friendly and interested in your well being. The lodge is surrounded by beautiful forests and lakes. We did the boat tour through the various lakes, spotted some hippos and had a swim in the middle of one the lakes where the water is clear, about 1 m deep with a white sandy floor! Awesome! After that we went on to the beach, where we had a picnic lunch and another swim, this time in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. What a wonderful day! That night we had dinner in a clearing literally "inside" the forest, oil lanterns led us from the lodge to a beautifully set table surrounded by more oil lanterns and a camp fire. Precious! Our guided canoe experience was absolutely amazing, beautiful and peaceful! Would definitely go back for more as there was not enough time to do all that there is to do!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kosi Forest Lodge is a 16 bed lodge fenced into the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, an internationally recognised World Heritage Site. We provide a snug and intimate base from which guests can explore this extraordinary area of splendour and diversity, or relax surrounded by incredible natural beauty. The lounge, dining room and bar extend into a large, wooden deck built in the shade of an enormous Zulu Podberry tree, and we take full advantage of Maputuland’s sultry weather with most meals served alfresco on the deck or sheltered beneath large Albizia trees.We have carefully positioned the thatched bush suites in the sand forest for privacy and peace under the canopy of shady trees. Low wooden bedroom walls with mosquito netting and roll-up canvas blinds allow for maximum views of the surrounding forest, and arguably the lodge’s most popular feature is the romantic, open air, en-suite bathroom set in white beach sand and enclosed by a reed boma. ... more less
