On the website it looks nice but in real life it's a very different story.

The place is way out of sight, and the road to there is very dodgy. The place doesn't look the same as they advertise. When we arrived they were not ready for us, we had to wait for the gas to arrive and then the shower did not work at all. Had to use the communal shower.

Kosibaai, bekostigbare verblyf.

Goeie waarde vir geld. Vriendelike gasvrou Maryna.

Bos, see, heerlike atmosfeer en wonderlike mense. Wat 'n lekker kuier was dit nie by Thobeka Lodge nie.

Ons sal beslis weer daar gaan vakansie hou. Die bestuur gaan uit hulle pad om alles gemaklik en mooi te maak. Wat 'n lekker kuier in die bos by die see. Well done Thobeka Lodge!

Baie lekke plek om te oornag. Als is daar wat nodig is.

Baie lekker plek om te oornag as jy oor die grens wil gaan. Naby aan Kosibaaimond. Kan gerus dit aanbeveel. Ons sien julle weer.

Very cool place to spend the night. If there is what is needed.

Very nice place to spend the night if you want to cross the border. Close to Kosibaaimond. Feel free to recommend it. We see you again.

If you backpack it's awesome. This is not a lodge.

The ad is misleading. This is backpackers and not a lodge. That's why the prices vary a lot. The staff is 100!

Zeer gewaardeerd.

Bij aankomst een warm welkom, die uitleg van de omgeving gekregen, voor ons soort mensen een goede boskamp met het slaapgedeelte wat veel privacy heeft. Alles was er wat nodig is, hout tekort gekomen was ook zo geregeld voor nieuw hout, eigenaren waren zeer vriendelijk behulzaam. Niks was er teveel. Je kan er gerust een ontbijtje nemen was erg lekker in een woord een geweldige plek voor wie van het bos houd.

Much appreciated.

On arrival a warm welcome, given the layout of the environment, for our kind of people a good forest camp with a sleeping area that has a lot of privacy. Everything was there that was needed, wood in short supply was also arranged for new wood, owners were very friendly. Nothing was too much. You can easily have a breakfast there, it was very nice in one word, a great place for those who like the forest.

Awesome! Ons het gevoel soos familie.

Baie dankie Maryna en oom Piet, julle was voorwaar vir ons 'n dubbel seëning uit die hemel. Julle het ons op die hande gedra en ons kon nie vir beter gevra het. Die inligting, bederf en die heerlike vakansie-atmosfeer is wonderlik. Ons sien jul beslis weer!

Thank you very much Maryna and Uncle Piet, you were truly a double blessing from heaven for us. You carried us on our hands and we couldn't have asked for better. The information, pampering and the wonderful holiday atmosphere are wonderful. We will definitely see you again!

Alles is daar, maklik skoon en veilig, vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Dis regtig om weg te kom van alles af.

Dit pas my dat daar nie TV is nie. Sorg dat jy enige kos of braaigoed koop in Manguzi, anders moet jy weer terugry dorp toe. 'n Prys per kampstaanplek is dalk 'n opsie, want dit kan nogal duur raak teen R150 p.p. Maar ek sal dit aanbeveel, Maryna en haar gesin is wonderlik!

Everything is there, easy clean and safe, friendly and helpful. It's really about getting away from it all.

It suits me that there is no TV. Make sure you buy any food or barbecue in Manguzi, otherwise you have to drive back to town. A price per pitch may be an option, as it can get quite expensive at R150 p.p. But I would recommend it, Maryna and her family are great!
