What Our Guests Say

What our guests have had to say about Kosi Forest Lodge

  • We stayed for two nights and totally loved Kosi Forest Lodge! The setting is tranquil, romantic and a nature-lovers paradise. Beautiful cabins set in private seclusion, nestled under beautiful trees where the sound of birds and the occasional hippo is all that can be heard for miles. The interior of the cabin is comfortable and spacious with hot showers, electricity and a kettle for morning coffee in your room. The outdoor shower and bath was perfect after our day trip on the lakes and to the beach. What a highlight the boat trip was - from our delightful guides, George & Phaqa, to the diverse bird life and numerous hippo sightings, to learning about the man-made fishing traps and a bit of snorkeling before the best swim in the Indian Ocean from a secluded beach!! I will treasure the memories for a long time and will make a point to come out this way again. Thanks to Zack and Blessing and the polite and helpful staff for a lovely stay, good food and an all round wonderful getaway. Stayed April 2016, travelled as a couple JOHANNESBURG
  •   Like others we left our vehicle at a nearby village and had a pick up to take us over the sand to the lodge. All worked like clockwork. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, giving us lots of tips including illuminating the night sky for us. Our activities were tremendous, made even better by the super guiding staff. The day on the boat was a highlight for us all, superb. We enjoyed every moment of the whole experience. Vowed to return. Room Tip: Wifi only in bar area. Make sure you have sundowners by the pool.
