Kozi Bay is located on the Elephant Coast of KwaZulu Natal and is made up of six large lakes, two smaller lakes and one conserved estuary on the Indian Ocean coastline. Stretching from Lake Zilonde on the border of Mozambique through to Lake Amanzimnyama in the south, Kozi Bay is fast becoming a tourism mecca as more and more people flock here for their holidays. The town can be spelt both as Kozi Bay and Kosi Bay - both of which are correct and widely used. The town has a great eco-system with its beautiful lakes and scenery.
Bird watching is a favourite with visitors, as well as the many game reserves in the area providing excellent opportunities to get up close and personal with some wildlife, including giraffes and elephants. Tourists can marvel at the two-armed Mudskipper fish and the one-armed Fiddler crab, while deep sea fishing is also a popular activity to do in these parts.
Kozi Bay has a thriving little business community and provides a wide range of goods and services to its residents and holiday makers and also forms part of the Zululand Birding Route.
