Kosi Safaris

Our Safaris – an awesome Experience!

With a range of activities to explore, we are well-placed to embark on a few adventurous African experiences. Whether you’re an adventure seeking explorer, a culture vulture, a nature lover, sporty or all of the above, the surroundings have something exciting for you to experience.

With an average of 200 days of sunshine per year, activities include snorkeling at Kosi Bay Mouth, in the “aquarium” with it’s incredible number of fish species swimming in the warm sea water, bathing in the sun, enjoying the untouched Kosi Bay beach, taking a hike through the sub-tropical Raffia Forest or kayaking on the clear blue water of the lakes. Kosi mouth is great for kids and very safe in the shallow waters of the lagoon.

Eye-opening African experiences for the culture vulture include day trips to the Hole in the wall market on the South African/Mozambican border where you are sure to be entertained by the hustle and bustle of everyday African market style busyness.

Hop on a boat for a cruise around the 4 Lake system, see Hippo, flamingo, and the old crocs. 

Snorkel around the fish traps and return richer from the experience!​

We also offer a 5 – 8 hour Tembe Elephant Reserve Safari, accompanied with a personalised guide of the Big 5 on sandy tracks, get out and view animals from a hide overlooking the waterhole.

From October to March, Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles nest at Bhanga Nek and all along the Maputaland coast. Sea turtles come from hundreds, and in some cases thousands of kilometers away to nest, because the area offers perfect turtle nesting areas and strict protection of the sea turtles and turtle eggs.
