Kosi bay is a vibrant colourful African village and the surrounds are an undiscovered paradise that offers diverse and unique tourism activities and attractions for backpackers in a fabulous subtropical climate.

The reserve is made up of a series of lakes connected by channels that drain through a sandy estuary into the sea. Kosi Bay Lakes excursions are an experience to remember where budget travellers will be likely to encounter hippos. In the Kosi mouth you will find a reef in the estuary which is excellent for snorkelling. When boating on the lakes you will encounter hippo’s. You can experience the best bird watching and fishing on the lakes. It is home to a large variety of birds and animals including hippos and crocs.

The Tsonga live here and, for generations,  they have trapped fish in handmade traps that look like reed fences.

Spend some time at Thobeka Backpackers and perhaps volunteer to give something back with their volunteer programme, or support the locals with your stay at the community owned Utshwayelo Lodge and Camp.
