Thembe Eco Lodge is situated on a hillside overlooking the Kwa-Mazambane Reserve in the northern most region of the Maputaland Wetlands of KwaZulu-Natal. This setting lends itself to the most beautiful view over the valley below, and from the chalets you are able to see the third, and biggest, lake of Kosi Bay.

The entire lodge has a well-kept lawn and a range of plants which all complement the natural feel of the surrounding nature, hence the "eco" in the name. It is also the place for fishermen, families, groups, or businessmen who want to refocus and relax.

The self-catering chalets and rondavels are comfortable and well-designed and offer all the linen and utensils you may need as well as air-conditioning, a TV, bathroom with shower, barbecue area, and a deck from which guests can sit and watch the sun rise over the African landscape. The tiled floors offer great relief from the sand outside and help in keeping the rooms looking their best at all times.

Kosi Bay Lodge is perfectly situated for guests who want to base themselves in the heart of this pristine area and further explore the region. Just a few hundred metres from the water’s edge of Lake Nhlange, the third and largest lake, Kosi Bay Lodge offers everything an African bush lodge should and more.

Sip sundowners in Nhlange Pub with amazing views and enjoy cuisine with a distinctive local flavour in the cosy atmosphere of the Umdoni Restaurant and Bar overlooking the pool and the sun deck. Two, four and six bedded rustic lodges are comfortably appointed. The structures consist of thatched roofs, treated poles, wooden floors on stilts and reed walls – typically Tonga and Zulu style. Accommodation is rustic more than plush, but the setting and range of activities make a stay well worthwhile.

Full board or self-catering options are available and all chalets have fully equipped kitchens with private barbecues and access to the boma areas. Accent is on comfort, informal service and attention, and guests are encouraged to explore this unique environment by friendly staff who are on hand to assist with information and arranging outings. For the adventurous, there are numerous activities and excursions that fully utilize the many resources available.

Kosi Bay is a place where fishermen can revere their surroundings, with kingfish, queenfish, stumpnose, shad, grunter, mullet and garrick just a fraction of what is available from the waters of this region. While Kosi Bay has such wonders as the two-armed mudskipper fish and the one-armed fiddler crab, nearby Ndumo Game Reserve sports rather larger wonders of the animal kingdom, including rhino, giraffe, warthog, zebra, kudu, nyala and impala, as well as over 400 bird species.

Other day tours include Black Rock, Lala Neck and Bhanga Nek – home to Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s 30 year old turtle research facility – all within easy reach. 4×4 vehicles are recommended.

A variety of bird species and animals from hippos, crocodiles and bull sharks can be seen in the area.

It is strongly recommended that travellers use 4x4 vehicles as the sands are often very thick. Please note that the use of quad bikes are forbidden as they are off-road vehicles and therefore not licensed to be on public roads; all roads around Palm Tree Lodge are considered public roads.

Palm Tree Lodge and all the local resorts are in a malaria area and guests are asked to take precautions while in the area.

Kosi Bay, in the far north eastern corner of KwaZulu-Natal, is a system of four lakes ranging from freshwater to saline, that feed into the ocean at the mouth. It forms part of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park - a natural World Heritage.

Age old traditions, passed down by generations of tribal existence, still continue to this day, such as ancient fishing kraals/utshwayelos erected and tendered by the resourceful Thonga people. Kosi Bay has been described as 'a wonderful aquarium and the most gorgeous aviary'.

Utshwayelo Lodge and Camp, a community owned project, is the most north eastern accommodation in South Africa. We are situated at the entrance gate to the Kosi Bay Mouth Reserve and Estuary, 2.5 km from the beach. We are easily accessible in a sedan and are 5 km from the Mozambique border.

Walk down and wade around the traditional fish traps and snorkel in the estuary with its kaleidoscope of over 200 species of tropical fish, surf from unspoiled beaches, boat on the magnificent lakes, or fly fish from the rocks. Do the turtle walk and watch big turtles lumbar out of the ocean to lay eggs on the beach, and little ones scampering back into the sea, from October to March. Take a guided hike or walk kilometres of pristine bush and beach, and swim in turquoise waters – or just read a book under magnificent ancient Umdoni trees next the swimming pool and enjoy a sundowner at the bar.

Utshwayelo Lodge and Camp has it all – experience life with us in paradise.

Amangwane is a community and business partnership right next to the Kosi Bay mouth gate. This rustic haven is set in the dunes surrounding the Lakes of Kosi bay in the heart of the welcoming Thongaland community. It is a mere 15 minute drive/30 minute walk to Kosi Bay mouth. Kosi bay is situated in the northern part of the iSimangaliso wetland park which is the first Natural World Heritage Site in South Africa. Kosi Bay reflects an Africa that is still untouched by western influences and displays the continuing culture and attitudes towards the environment of the Thonga people. We are also approximately 5km from the Mozambique border post of Ponta D’Oura making us the perfect stop over before an excursion or daytrip into Mozambique.

Kosi Bay consists of four lakes that feed into the Indian Ocean. These lakes range from freshwater to saline and traditional fishing methods are still employed here today by the Thonga people. Through the use of fishing kraals that are constructed out of only the local plants and grasses, the Thonga people fish the lakes in an ecologically sound way that cannot result in overfishing – it is in this way that the Thonga take care of the environment that has been their home for centuries.

The name Amangwane originates from business partner Elmon Mkhonto’s family name. The word Amangwane place of the octopus has strong traditional links with the Mkhonto family of Kosi Bay. Amangwane lodge was chosen as a fitting name for our community owned lodge firstly due to its link to Elmon and his family, but also due to the fact that like the arms of the Octopus our lodge reaches out to embrace the community that surrounds us.

We are fully accessible by ordinary motorcar 4x4 vehicles are not necessary to reach our Kosi Bay accommodation. Our reed chalets are also well spaced to offer you the maximum privacy while you stay with us.

Our accommodation comprises of 10 traditionally constructed en-suite reed chalets with a separate communal dining and boma area, which of course has a fire pit – no night in South Africa, would be complete without an evening under the stars swapping stories of your travels around a campfire. As well as dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation we offer package adventures with lots of activities, or self-catering.
