Kosi Bay comprises four lakes linked by a network of channels. The Kosi estuary offers extraordinary snorkelling opportunities and is one of the world’s top fly-fishing destinations. Traditional fishing practices dating back 700 years are still passed down from one generation to the next. This is the only place where all South Africa’s mangrove species and the only stand of naturally occurring Raphia palms occur.
The Kosi Bay Camp is situated on the western shore of Lake Nhlange, the largest of Kosi’s four lakes and is run by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife. The camp consists of self catering cottages that are set in the bush and the campsites are situated in the vicinity of the Lake's shore.
