We had a quiet and relaxing time. The camp site is secure and private. The staff was very friendly and helpful with all our enquiries. We enjoyed the hike downhill to the river mouth and the three lakes boat cruise. We just regret that we had only booked two nights, we wished to stay longer.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5

We spent 4 nights at the lodge, staying in the chalets and safari tent with kitchenette. Facilities are rustic but very comfortable and the absolute highlight was the outdoor shower looking up to the trees and the stars! The lodge has a lovely atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Kosi Bay is a beautiful place, we recommend the boat trip on the lakes where you can see bird life, hippos, the local traditional fish traps and even snorkel to see some of the underwater life. The trip to Kosi mouth is also a must but a good 4 x 4 is needed. The snorkeling at the mouth is amazing! In a shallow sandy reef are hundreds of fish of many types, all sizes and colours and even some eels lurking in the rocks. An unbelievable outdoor aquarium. If you love exploring nature we would highly recommend this trip.
Superb. 5 out of 5

I spent a day in this wonderful area in Mike and his family lodge. Lodge literally at the entrance of the World heritage UNESCO Kosi Bay Mouth (although quite hidden when you drive from Mozambique - almost missed it), surely the best located in the area among the lodges, they also have exclusive access to the protected areas since they work in symbiosis with the local traditional people from neighboring villages. The area is just by the border of Mozambique, at the estuary of the famous Kosi Bay Lakes and is a must-see if you spend some time in KZN. Mike’s family was extremely welcoming and forth seeing to make my short stay as enjoyable as possible. Great expweience.
Superb. 5 out of 5
