Our private lodge, which specializes in catering exclusively for between two to six guests, runs on solar power and offers drinkable borehole water. It is nestled peacefully in the dappled shade of majestic indigenous trees in the Kosi Bay sand forest. The Kosi Bay area is situated in the northeastern coastal corner of South Africa.
By day guests can enjoy the forest which is alive with squirrels, Samango and Vervet monkeys and an abundant array of bees, butterflies and birds. By night, the bush sounds come to the fore, when owls may converse with each, bushbabies might squabble in the trees, and sometimes a lonely nightjar calls. All these sounds gently ease the silence under the starry African skies.
We provide community upliftment and our activities are Eco friendly as we offer hiking in the forest and on pristine beaches. We lead by example and enjoy sharing in the culture and tradition of the local people of Kosi Bay in this beautiful corner of South Africa.
