Kichaka Private Game Lodge

Open up to the wild outside as you roll away glass doors and become one with the endlessly changing Africa that surrounds you. Flanked by two flowing streams and abundant fauna, this is Kichaka: lush on the outside, plush on the inside.

The local plant-life is still no match for the lodge’s crew of highly skilled rangers and spotters though. And tucked as it is amidst green and game (including the Big Five), you will find the distinctive stone and thatch that is Kichaka. Each of the lodge’s 10 suites accommodate a maximum of two guests in total luxury with private viewing deck, indoor and outdoor showers, well stocked bar and private plunge pool.

Guests and game alike find their favourite watering holes, however, conveniently situated off the main lodge. Guests in search of pamper also congregate here, at the fully equipped wellness suite where you will find treatments that span from Africology facials to infra-red saunas. For those exhausted by the thrills of the daily game drives, a well-stocked library and inviting lounge are on offer, where guests can read up on the region’s wildlife or lose themselves in local legends.

Dining options, you will discover, are equally abundant. Elect to dine on your private verandah, at the Lodge or on one of the tiered terraces that stretch lazily from the lodge. There is also an award wining wine for every eventuality – culinary or otherwise.

Why stay here?

Situated in a private game reserve in the malaria-free Eastern Cape, Kichaka is the perfect place to enjoy a Big Five safari experience in quiet luxury.

Feel instantly at home – the lounge and dining areas are positioned to offer uninterrupted views across unspoilt bush. Large terraces provide a magnificent viewing deck to witness the passage of game to the banks of the adjacent waterhole.

Relax and enjoy the scents and sounds of the African bush in 10 beautifully appointed and spacious suites, each with private deck, plunge pool and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Experienced guides ensure fascinating game-viewing from open vehicles or on guided walks;
Enjoy a relaxing massage in the safari-styled wellness-suite, outstanding cuisine complemented by premium wines, and our friendly staff, who are key to Kichaka’s commitment to service excellence and a 5 star experience, tailor-making each guest’s stay to suit individual tastes, interests and moods.
