Bordering the unspoilt wilderness of the Kosi Bay Nature Reserve - the most pristine lake system in South Africa - Kosi Bay has loads to offer the adventurous visitor, nature-lover and holiday-maker.

Kosi Mouth is also known for the fascinating traditional Thonga fish traps – a prime example of sustainable natural resource management in action and a vital source of food for the surrounding communities.

For the adventurous, snorkelling and diving are highlights (diving hotspots are Sodwana Bay to the south and Ponta do Oura just to the north and in Mozambique) along with turtle tours, numerous scenic trails for hikes or runs, boat trips, 4x4 excursions, sunset tours on the lake, kayaking and wildlife tours in the nearby Tembe Elephant Reserve or Ndumo Game Reserve.
Exquisite white beaches, exotic coastal forests and sparkling lakes replenish weary souls and rejuvenate tired minds – visit us and see!
