Our reception was very friendly and we were even fetched at the turn-off. We were very disappointed with the facilities as we expected much better for the rate we were charged. There was no hot water tap at the basin in the bathroom, the pillows were really terrible and bedding very old. There was a musty smell all over. The... More

I do not recall an incident, however, it could have been some people walking past the lodge after a night out. I can say with cartainty that we... More

We stayed here on our last research trip to Kosi Bay. Stafford was an amazing host and served us an excellent dinner. He's extremely friendly and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The cabins themselves are rather comfortable and spread out. We hope to visit again soon!
