Kosi Bay and surrounds

Kosi Bay is a beautiful and remote place on the KwaZulu-Natal east coast. Here you will find divers, fishermen and holidaymakers. It is situated close to the border of Mozambique.

Lakes and streams enter the sea at Kosi Bay and the region is famous for numerous clean beaches. Much of the area is protected within the Kosi Bay Nature Reserve and it is possible to go on several lovely hikes.

Kosi Bay is known for its vegetation - fig and raffia palm forests as well as mangrove swamps. Antelope and hippos inhabit the drier places and Zambezi sharks and crocodiles the lake systems. There are over 250 bird species and the highly endangered leatherback turtle can also be seen here.

The Kosi Bay Nature Reserve lies on the coast in the northern part of KwaZulu-Natal and surrounds the unique and beautiful Kosi Bay lake system which is part of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, a World Heritage Site. This system consists of four lakes and a series of inter connecting channels which eventually drain via a sandy estuary into the Indian ocean.

Kosi is one of the most fascinating and beautiful pristine lake systems on the African coastline, a get-away-from-it-all coastal paradise. Activities revolve largely around water sports, walking trails and sport fishing activities including deep-sea, surf, estuary, fly and spear fishing. Snorkeling is always popular and guided walks around the lake system can be arranged.

The condition of the last 7 kilometres of the Lake Nhlange entrance road varies according to season and weather so it is recommended that prospective visitors phone before setting off. As most of the roads in the area are sand tracks, a 4X4 is required to fully access all the areas of the park.
