About Kosi Bay Palm Tree Lodge

The Palm Tree Lodge is located in the northernmost part of the St Lucia Wetlands and borders on the greenbelt of the Maputuland coastline. It aims to offer its guests a true feeling of the African bushveld with a little bit of the tropics.

Palm Tree Lodge offers a choice of one of the eight self-catering chalets or 10 Campsites. The chalets can sleep between three to eight people and are furnished with comfortable double or single beds. Each chalet has a private bathroom that consists of a shower only. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge-freezer, a two-plate stove and a kettle. Fans are also provided for your comfort. The chalets have private verandas and guests can make use of the barbecue facilities. The Campsites are equipped with electricity and each has a private barbecue area. The communal ablutions consist of showers only and have washbasins for dishes or laundry. The lodge also has a swimming pool, a trampoline, swings and a pool table, and is sure to keep guests entertained.

Palm Tree Lodge has always encouraged the use of the Gillies which are local guides to show visitors around, and they operate excursions such as fishing guides, tours of local attractions, game viewing trips to the nearby Thembe Elephant Park, Turtle Tours during the months of November to March, or transfers to the local beaches which are only accessible by 4x4 vehicles. 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. Feel the sand between your toes, fall asleep to the sound of palm trees rustling in the wind and marvel at the beauty of the plants and shrubs throughout Palm Tree Lodge; the ideal place to rest, relax and recharge.

                  I can highly recommend Palm Tree Lodge. This was one of the most pleasant stays I have ever had. Camping on lush green grass, every thing you need is there. Great restaurant, great food and very friendly staff and always willing to help.Definitely the first on my list for the area

                  We stayed two nights on the campsite of the Palm Tree Lodge. After a warm welcome we explored the large pool. Our kids made friends in the game center playing pool and dart. The whole place is very clean and neat.The highlight was a tour to Kosi Bay Mouth for snorkeling and swimming. The team of Palm Tree Lodge helped us to get a permit and Jan showed us the beauty of this nature reserve. Thank you for two phantastic days...

                  It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Palm Tree Lodge. Thanks to Jan for all the info about the correct spots to dive, etc. The staff are very friendly and they have delicious and well priced burgers at the restaurant. Will definitely stay there again. Snorkeling at the mouth was one of the highlights of our 2 week holiday in KZN. Lodge situated close to the mouth and office to obtain permits to enter the mouth.
