Home-made delicious food, charming beach place as well as the spacious bungalow. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I was alone with my three year old little girl for holidays, and they made it also very relaxing to me. We enjoyed our too short stay and I am planning to go again next year. So a highly recommended logde... More

Kichanga lodge is the perfect spot to hide from everything, quiet and beautiful. Our bungalow was very spacious, clean and romantic, with a fantastic view. The staff is always willing to help, the food is home made (everything from bread to cakes) and different every day. the sea is stunning, and the low tide gives you the chance to walk... More

Our stay at this lodge was way to short, it was relaxing and very comfortable. The rooms had air-conditioning, which you need in December, trust me. The pool was nice and big, very clean. The resort grounds was well kept, the staff very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here and will highly recommend it!

I just came back from Kichanga…and the only thing I really want is to come back as soon as possible! How can I describe Paradise? Beauty, charm, silence, hospitality, privacy…are only some of the things you can experience there. It is situated in a very exclusive endeavor far from crowded Zanzibar. From your bungalow -located a few steps from the... More

I have stayed at Kichanga lodge for 4 days with a friend. It was the most charming and relaxing vacation I had in years. The place is stunning, far from Zanzibar most crowded areas, the staff is helping and efficient and the atmosphere absolutely magic. The bungalows are simple and elegant and from the veranda you can see the white-sand... More

I had 5 nights at KIchanga following a few days safari in Tanzania. I was a lone traveller and did find it a little quiet and difficult so far away from Stone Town. Unfortunately I was having trouble (we think) with a reaction to taking 'malerone' and didn't really feel up to going too far from the lodge. So I... More

Can only confirm the superlatives of the other recent reviews. We had three days and four nights at Kichanga, nobody wanted to leave and now we all can't wait to go back. The bungalows may not be 5 star luxury, but they have a beautiful rustic charm, are very comfortable and are just perfectly situated a few steps from the... More

If there was one thing we were forced to say bad about Kichanga, the only thing we could come up with is that the staff was TOO friendly. Everything about the lodge was great. The food was some of the best we had on our whole trip in Tanzania (we even liked it better than the famed The Rock down... More

Kichanga Lodge is a beautiful property overlooking one of the most picturesque beaches I have seen anywhere in the world. The staff at Kichanga do an outstanding job in every way imaginable. They are friendly, helpful, outgoing, polite and professional, and they all do their jobs very, very well. The bungalows are ideally designed to offer extraordinary views of the... More
