Kosi Bay epitomises the incredible splendour of untouched Africa at its most pristine, as are its people, resources, ecology, and culture.
Utshwayelo Kosi Mouth Lodge & Camp takes its name from the 800-year-old fish kraals celebrating the traditions and culture of the Thonga people. It is a community partnership project of skills sharing and a life of purpose. The lodge has been in existence since 1992 as a community campsite. In 2010 the current management took over and has grown Utshwayelo into the successful lodge it is today.
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.
Experience Kosi Mouth Lodge & Camp, a gem of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park World Heritage Site.
