On the morning of our third day we took a walk down to the beach to watch the sun rise and go for a snorkel once the tide went down. We had a good long morning before we noticed that there was a storm brewing to the south and the wind was blowing it towards us. So we decided to get our next leg of the journey moving.

We embarked on a 6 hour drive of 90km through the Isimangaliso Wetland Park to Kosi Bay Casitas on its beach sand roads. Stopping over at the various beach stops soaking in the amazing secluded beaches. The roads were very soft beach sand and made the driving quiet fun but tiring after 6 hours. 

We ended up making our way to Kosi Bay Casitas where we set up camp for the night getting ready to wake up fresh for the next days activities. During the night however, we were woken up to a rain storm that seemed like it was going to last the whole next day. Luckily it stopped by the time we were heading out to go snorkel.

In the morning of the forth day we took a drive to the Kosi Mouth Estuary where we had a chance to snorkel in the estuary itself, seeing all kinds of fish life in the coral reef there. We could also see the large amounts of fish traps in Kosi Lake One that the area is famous for.

For the afternoon we met up with two other people staying at Kosi Bay Casitas, Anne and Ryan who didn't have a 4x4, we took them with us to the place from which we took a boat ride on the Kosi Lakes. During the boat ride we saw the fish traps up close, lots of bird life, thousands of fish swimming passed us, a small crocodile and some hippos, not to mention the great views of the area surrounding the lakes.

The Land Rover 110 Defender TD5 was great to drive on these roads and made it almost too easy to drive as nothing seemed to stop the vehicle and all obstacles were handled without any difficulty.


Thank you to 4WD Expeditions for making this possible by providing the Land Rover 110 Defender TD5.
