What does Utshwayelo mean?
Utshwayelo means fish trap in the Thonga language. We know it is a mouthful but we are very proud of the name as it represents the community and their heritage.
How far are you from the beach?
We are about 2 km from the mouth (the closest lodge to the sea). Utshwayelo borders on the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife Kosi Bay Reserve at Kosi Mouth which is part of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park (a proclaimed UNESCO World Heritage Site). It is situated at the most northern part of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park-Kosi Mouth gate. We are also about 10 km from Ponta do Ouro in Mozambique.
