Highlights

You wake up in the morning surrounded by beautiful trees which are a
haven for a prolic bird life. Join the team for a hearty breakfast on the main lodge deck while you decide where you want to explore
that day.

This 20-bed wilderness lodge offers the unique opportunity of exploring
a pristine wetland environment by vehicle, guided canoes and boats.
The Kosi Lakes are a series of interconnected lakes which stretch over
some 18km. The best way to see the system is by boat. The full day
excursion leaves shortly after breakfast and travels through the lake
system and estuarine waterways. The guides stop along the way and
explain the traditional fishing traps and the traditions of the Tsonga
community, who live in balance with the lake system.

A picnic lunch is served on the banks of the scenic lakeside. After your meal, you will continue on to Bhanga Nek beach where you can enjoy one last swim before heading back to the lodge.

An additional activity and one which is a Kosi hightlight is the canoe trip on the Kosi Lakes. The best time for this activity is in the early morning and lasts for approximately 2 hours. Guides escort you by canoe along the Sihadla channel where the bird life is very rewarding and the scenery peaceful and breath taking.
