The Kosi Bay Hike is an escape into one of the inaccessible and ecologically special parts of South Africa. It is a region of pristine diversity, consisting of four interconnected lakes and an estuary that opens out into the warm Indian Ocean. It forms part of the protected iSimangaliso Wetland Park, which was South Africa's first World Heritage Site.
Due to the many activities on offer, this is a
flexible trail which can be tailored to suit the
time, fitness and interests of the group.
Winding your way from isolated beaches to cool
dune forests, through open savannah and wetlands,
the hiking days vary from 10 - 17km a day. Each
day brings a new natural or cultural
fascination. From watching the local fisherman
spear a prize mullet in their traditional fish
kraals to seeing the loggerhead turtles waddle
ashore to lay their eggs (in Nov - March),
snorkelling in a natural aquarium or tasting
locally brewed Lala palm wine.
You will overnight in a comfortable beach camp, and a beach & bush camp on the 5 & 6 day option. The hiking trail is led by local community guides who are happy to share their knowledge and heritage, so you leave not only 'refreshed' but enriched.
