A great backpackers at Kosi Bay

Sling yourself into a hammock and contemplate the thought of
snorkelling, spear fishing, hiking, game viewing in the Tembe Reserve, popping off to Mozambique, visiting
the Raffia Palm Forest, turtle spotting in season and boat safaris amongst hippos, or just
enjoy a snooze in the sun.
