An enchanted hiding place Wonderland of Forests and Waterways

YOURS TO DISCOVER

Kosi Forest Lodge is situated within iSimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa’s first World Heritage Site, giving you the opportunity to experience exclusive, close encounters with the untouched African wilderness. The lodge is surrounded by untold biodiversity and beauty that you simply have to see for yourself. There is limited electricity, and candlelight gives the lodge a warm, romantic ambience reminiscent of wild African adventures of long ago. This is fitting for this ancient land with a mystical quality that you’ll never quite be able to describe. It’s a place where you can rediscover nature, and, even more importantly, rediscover yourself.
