The local community runs a four-day Kosi trail, which includes almost the entire Kosi Lakes System. They make use of three rustic, camps for over nighting and also give a tour of turtle spotting when in season.
The Kosi people's culture is fascinating and they are profoundly dependent on the inter tidal wealth of resources and to this day still make use of fish traps in the lakes, a system that has been handed down from generation to generation.
To avoid problems with the local community, visitors are requested to refrain from troubling the fish kraals. Accommodation at Kosi Bay Camp
