We were welcomed by a friendly staff who were more than ready to provide us with whatever we needed. The beach is amazing and private - the tide is fascinating and changes the beach from big waves to low water were you can discover and snorkle. The water is not totally clean - we were swimming in a bit seaweed... More

Spent a week at this lovely place. Cute African style bungalows with comfy beds and nice porches. The 'dressing room' for all your stuff was a really nice feature. Great breakfast buffet and tasty food - the Chicken Curry is superb! Most of the time we were alone on the wide white beach, so it´s a quite place. There are... More

What an absolutely stunning location! We practically had a white sandy beach and bar to ourselves most days: it felt a bit like a desert island! There was a real personal touch at Kichanga Lodge which we definitely appreciated. The staff were chatty and warm - and it didn’t feel like an act like it can do in other places.... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful time, they made us feel like royalty. It was hard to leave paradise. Our rooms were clean both morning and evening. Food was different than typical American fare and we loved it!. everything about The Kichanga lodge was beyond our expectations.

It sort-of reminded me of a haunted house. Bathroom was ok but in need of an update. The food was good but my husband thought it was... More
