delightful break

Both the food and service were wonderful. Outings on the river and forest walls peaceful with cheerful and informative local guides.

The woods, grasslands, and water are quite beautiful; the lodge - accommodation, food, service are all good - but perhaps a little overpriced.
Had a terrific time!

Enjoyed the setting
Peggy Bide, Swaziland - 27 January 2007
We very much enjoyed the setting - the cabins, (and outdoor bathrooms!)etc and the meals were well presented and for the most part delicious. In conclusion, we had a lovely stay but we found it all in all a bit pricey for what was offered. In conclusion, we had a lovely stay but we found it all in all a bit pricey for what was offered.
Baruch Harris review of Kosi forest lodge
Baruch Harris, United States of America - 10 November 2005
The lodge itself is beautiful - and very expensive. In many ways they have succeeded in creating the 5 star hotel experience, in the bush, which is quite amazing. The rooms and bathrooms were superb, on par with almost any hotel we've stayed in, and all the more impressive for being isolated. Common area and general layout also very nice - lots of privacy. The meals were good, but not on the level of the rooms - they were very well presented (e.g. how they looked on the plate) and service was excellent, but the food itself was just good. One suggestion could be to incorporate more local dishes, prepared to the same level of presentation and service, but also allowing us to sample the local fare. For example one night we had Norwegian salmon, which must have been very hard to procure from so far away, and was frozen (etc.) The guided trips that we took were also a lot of fun, and a great part of the experience. Overall highly recommended!

Our unique open-air en-suite bathrooms have been noted by our guests as one of the highlights of their visit. Mosquito netting lines each bedroom.
