Get away from it all and escape to the tropical and exquisite beauty of Kosi Forest Lodge.

Surrounded by ancient sand forests, Kosi Forest Lodge is situated within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa’s last unexplored wetland wilderness.

Our eight thatched forest rooms provide an authentic ‘back to nature’ experience.  Rooms are raised on wooden decks, and the open-air, reed-enclosed bathrooms with baths and showers sunk into white forest sand are a highlight for guests. The rustic yet comfortable accommodation aesthetic provides an authentic ‘back to nature’ experience. You’ll wake up in the morning surrounded by the sounds of the forest’s prolific bird life.

Explore the pristine wetland environment by vehicle, guided canoes and boats and be rewarded by an abundance of birdlife, exciting animal sightings and breathtakingly peaceful scenery.  You can also choose to enjoy your privacy, relax by the pool or go on a raffia forest walk. No matter what you choose to do, you’re guaranteed an ‘away from it all’ experience that will bring you back in touch with nature.

    Our stay was absolutely fantastic, the staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after! It is truly a romantic getaway and highly recommended, all the way from the warm welcome to the great food (they even catered to my gluten free needs) to the romantic outside bath! It was heaven and we hope to one day return!


    Kosi Forest Lodge is a secluded idyllic gem of a destination. The units are well positioned for privacy and waking up to the sounds of the forest each morning was a real treat. Thanks for a great stay.
