Have you ever been to Kosi Bay?
If you are planning a trip to South Africa, see if you can visit Kosi Bay in Natal.
The unique system of costal lakes support a huge number of bird species and is famous for the traditional fishtraps used by the local people.
We were able to watch both Samango monkeys in the costal rain forest and went snorkeling in the estuary.
Being guests of the Warden we were able to stay in one of the researcher's huts for a few days.
I remember listening to Zulu drums beating as the sun went down.
You can now stay at Memela Bush Lodge, Kosi Bay Lodge or in other accommodation nearby, but ask about camp sites or if they still have hiking trail huts available, as they are right down by the lakes.
