The Palm Tree Lodge
is set in the Northern most part of the St Lucia Wetlands and bordering on the Green belt of the Maputuland Coast line.
It is neatly tucked up close to the main gate of the regional Parks Board offices making the acquisition of all the necessary permits as easy as possible and also lends its self as a base camp for launching craft onto the lakes as well as the Sea Launches which take place in Ponto Du Ore.
The main aim is to offer it’s guests a true feeling of the African bushveld with a little bit of the tropics as it is inundated with fruit baring Coconut Palms during the summer months. There are also Campsites available with electricity.
It is the natural surroundings that make this resort a destination for the true lover of the out doors. Stripped from all the noise from your Television, Computer games, Kids PlayStation and Booming Radio’s, beeping cars and annoying alarms, The Palm Tree Lodge takes you away from the everyday stress and noise and brings you back to Nature!
We strongly recommend
the use of 4x4 vehicles on our roads as the sand is often very thick in places. Getting to the Mouth, Black Rock and other beaches, including driving around in Mozambique can best be done with a 4x4 vehicle.

Health & Climate:
The Palm Tree Lodge and all the resorts in the area are in a Malaria area and although the health department does spray regularly the Management of Kosi Khaya request that all precautions be taken in the form of tablets and mosquito repellent whilst visiting the region.
All problem we have was that there was no electricity on the Friday night and also no water. But everything was fine on Saturday morning.
Very neat, clean accommodation. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this place to all my friends and family!
