Utshwayelo, Kosi Bay Mouth Lodge & Camp

Free cancellation
Kosi Bay is a system of lakes, channels and an estuary, ranging from fresh to saline water and joining the ocean at the mouth. It is one of the most fascinating and beautiful pristine lake systems on the African coast, attracting a remarkable variety of brightly coloured marine life. Kosi Bay is the gem of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site. The Mozambique border forms the northern boundary of the protected area and the Indian Ocean the eastern boundary. Nestled in the most north-eastern corner of South Africa lies Utshwayelo Kosi Mouth Lodge & Camp. The lodge offers superb Kosi Bay accommodation and is just a stone’s throw from the pristine beach, where the blue waters of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site flow into the Indian Ocean at the mouth of the Kosi Bay estuary system near the Mozambique border. From en-suite luxury tents to en-suite rustic chalets, tented camps and private campsites, our lodge provides the kind of Kosi Bay accommodation you are looking for – and is easily accessible by motor car. Wade among the iconic traditional Tsonga fish traps from which the lodge takes its name, snorkel in the estuary teeming with tropical fish, go hippo spotting on a scenic boat trip on the lakes or hike through the unspoiled bush. And when your day is done, unwind under the magnificent ancient Umdoni trees next to the pool or enjoy a sundowner at the Fishtrap bar and plan your adventure for the new day.
