Reasonable place to stay . Undergoing upgrades and renovations. Water activity limited due to vessels OOA. No beach and a walk to the lake. Unfortunately only the KZN parks board has some camping on the water. Roads in a shocker if you don't have a LDV or 4x4.

I stayed in one of the privately owned chalets. The description of this place doesn’t even begin to do it justice! Not even a little. Firtsly it is not rustic at all, but rather luxurious. The kitchen is well equiped and beautiful. And the daily service makes your holiday so much more relaxed. The location in the forest is fairytale...

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The staff were welcoming and helpful and I loved the chalets hidden among the trees. We did the walk, canoe and boat trip on the lake with the lodge and took our own 4 x 4 to Kosi Mouth. Enjoyed them all. A highlight was the canoe trip with our excellent guide pointing out many birds(including...

The Lodge is run by the most hospitable staff and owners. One can choose to chill and relax by the pool or deck of the chalet or...

Beautiful spot that has so much potential! Didn't have the best experience with management.The accommodation is great, was disappointed to realise how extensive the damage was from the fire. We didnt get the amazing view from the bar like previous reviewers had raved about! Had a lot of building going on, so I would like to see what they do,...

Kosi Bay Lodge has the luck to be in a beautiful spot where nature is kept and is loved by the inhabitants. The Chalets are simple and provides everything that is needed. If you have a pool this one is well maintained and give you the necessary fresh to combat the heat. Near the pool you can encounter sometimes a...

This was my second stay at Kosi Bay Lodge and I was mildly apprehensive when we arrived and found out that the original building and restaurant had been burned down in a tragic fire earlier this year. However, the reception was still as warm as I remember from the first time and the accommodation was fair. The only drawback was...
