Kosi Bay Turtle Tours May 16th, 2013
Kosi Bay Turtle Tours
Kosi Bay turtle tours begin in November and continue until mid-March when the turtle nesting and hatching season comes to an end. Kosi Bay is the best place in South Africa to do a turtle tour because at Kosi Bay there is the highest concentration of turtles nesting anywhere along the entire African coastline.
Sea turtles come from hundreds, and in some cases thousands of kilometers away to nest at Kosi Bay because the area offers perfect turtle nesting areas and strict protection of the sea turtlesand turtle eggs. No driving on the beaches is allowed at Kosi Bay and all the Kosi Bay Turtle Tours are by foot. There are indiscriminateturtle tour operators further south of Kosi Bay who still use vehicles on the beach during turtle nesting season and we believe that vehicle basedturtle tours should come to an end....noisy 4x4 vehicles on the beach in a Turtle Sanctuary?????
Kosi Bay Turtle Tours offer you the opportunity to view these ancient reptiles in their natural habitat during the only time of the year that the turtles leave the water.
