It has been incorporated into the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, an internationally recognised World Heritage Site in northern KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The 11,000ha, 30km-long reserve is a tropical paradise of crystal clear water, marshland, swamp and coastal forests that is home to about 250 species of bird.
Kayak hire is widely available at Kosi Bay and Kosi Forest Lodge, the only private lodge in the nature reserve, offers guided canoeing for guests staying at the lodge.
Self guided kayaking:
Explore the waterways by sea kayak, around the mangrove trees and see how many of the myriad of bird species you can find. You can also venture through the surf to the offshore reefs.
The highlight of many guests stay at Kosi Forest Lodge is the canoe trip on the Kosi Lakes. Guests get the opportunity to canoe along the Sihadla channel and admire the magnificent Raffia Palms. The bird life while canoeing is very rewarding. Canoeing is always accompanied by a guide and is included in stays of one night. No experience is required.
