I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of April. We had a blast! The owner and her son(who was down for the month) were excellent hosts. It is very rustic, but a great experience. The other guests were also really nice, which of course helps!

My stay at Thobeka Backpackers was supposed to be for two days, but eventually I stayed for 5 days because of the lovely service and nice activities. The owner really showed me the highlights of Kosi Bay.


All the nice hiking trips around Kosi Bay and putting some fish on the braai next to the lake. Lovely!

Thobeka's setting in the bush creates a real African feeling. Getting connected with nature was made possible by Trevor and his local guides who showed us the gems of Kosi Bay: Hiking through the Wetland Park, exploring the traditional fish traps and snorkelling with vividly coloured fish while spending the warm nights around the bonfire with people from all over...

As it was low season, the owner, Trevor, took time to make us discover the beautiful area of Kosi Bay: snorkelling, kayak, trekking, fishing!! We even shared a meal with fresh fishes from the lakes that we will remember for a long time! Room...
