INFORMATION FOR BIRDERS:

With ever-shrinking natural spaces meaning more and more wildlife under threat, the simple act of bird-watching is a pleasure which becomes increasingly sacred. Kosi Forest Lodge is one of the best bases for birdwatching in South Africa. At Kosi Forest Lodge, birding is one of our favourite activities and we have access to some of Zululand’s best birding areas. The local guides at Kosi Forest Lodge know all the secret hiding places and can help you tick those elusive species off your list.
