We visited Kichaka over a week ago for 3 nights. The welcome we got was fantastic - our lodge was amazing and very large, it had everything and more you would ever need pure bliss. We loved the outdoor space of the plunge pool, outdoor shower and veranda, everything was so private. The best was the game drives - our...

Nothing had quite prepared us for the wonderful experience we enjoyed over the two nights we stayed. From beginning to end we were made to feel very special and nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff. Our ranger, Ash, gave us an unforgettable experience and his knowledge and enthusiasm was truly remarkable. thank you again.

My partner and I have just returned from 2 nights at Kichaka Lodge, a luxury experience we will never forget. From our superb guide - Jason - to the wonderful staff at the lodge the 2 days of safari were relaxing and awe inspiring.

Quite simply the best place I've ever stayed. The lodge is luxurious, the food delightful and the service excellent. Our ranger, Jason, was very knowledgable and managed to show us elephants, lions, a cheetah, rhino, zebras and a range of antelope. He even took us for a separate fishing trip. There wasn't a single thing that I would change.

I've been to various game lodges around South Africa and always love going back to Kichaka. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left we were treated like Kings and Queens. You're greeted with hot hand towels and a cocktail and then you are given an 'orientation' of the lodge - from the lounges with open fireplaces, to...

The lodge is marvellous, the staff are friendly and efficient, the food was fantastic and the...

We arrived at Kichaka after a lengthy trip into South Africa from the US and we're greeted with a drink and tour of the facilities and our rooms. Jason, our guide for the duration of our trip took us on the first game drive that night and despite some freezing cold temperatures and a little rain it was very exciting...

Beauty in every single way!!! The only way to describe what Kichaka has to offer. From the cuisine through to the staff. Everyone made us felt like we were family.
