Welcome to Kosi Bay
The jewel of iSimangaliso Wetland Park, Kosi Bay features a string of four lakes, starting from an estuary lined with some of the most beautiful and quiet beaches in South Africa. Fig, mangrove and raffia-palm forests provide the greenery (it’s the only place in South Africa with five mangrove species in one place). Within the estuary mouth is excellent snorkelling. Note: stonefish are present here, so protect your feet if walking in the estuary.
Hippos, Zambezi sharks and some crocs live within the lake system. More than 250 bird species have been identified here, including rare palmnut vultures.
