At Kosi Forest Lodge you can watch giant leatherback turtles struggle ashore at night to lay tens of thousands of their eggs on our beaches - an experience of a lifetime.
The giant turtles, weighing almost a ton, swim thousands of kilometres, lumber ashore and up the beaches to lay their eggs in holes they dig in the sand.
When the eggs hatch vast numbers of baby leatherback turtles struggle down the beach towards to sea. Many are taken by predators before they even reach the first wave. The turtle 'season' is between mid November and mid-January.
