Kichanga Lodge Zanzibar: Not for everyone
All about the island’s soul, this lodge with on-the-beach accommodation is best for unwinding, feeling nature and checking back in with oneself.
Situated on its own hillside, with large private beach, Kichanga, one of Zanzibar’s finest beach accommodation options and reflects the best of Zanzibar’s flow and pace. Time is dictated by nature, tourists become relaxed travellers. A boutique lodge with 14 stand-alone spacious, and we mean spacious, villas; the loved, and oh so mellow ‘Club House’; Italian inspired, locally impassioned and flavoured menus.
Our guests feel Kichanga’s uncomplicated rhythm. Its style is shaped by its environment and is augmented by décor that lets the mind wander. Each piece, and picture tells a story.
This private resort hosts every guest in charming, thatch, wood framed windowed airy bungalows. Huge, comfortable rooms, private balconies complete with hammock and views of the blue, turquoise and green waters of the Indian Ocean. Other facilities include Wifi and airport transfers on request.
Our approach, and the location of the Lodge, puts the decision into your hands: get involved as and when it suits you. We’re an easy ride to the local villages of Michanvi and Paje, with Stone Town 40 minutes away. Zanzibar’s popular activities are very close by – spice tours, Jozani Forrest tours and the search for the Red Colobus Monkey.
Kichanga Lodge is your Mother Ship: When the need for activity and action calls, guests can choose from several lively beach and water activities: Paddling, dhow sailing, beach volley-ball, kite surfing, scuba diving. Our guests struggle when they leave, as do we. But we rest assured, they’re inspired for the next part of life’s journey.
Mid-way between Kichanga Lodge and our Dongwe Ocean View, a mere 5 min, lies The Rock of Zanzibar. One of the world’s iconic restaurants, attracting travellers from around the globe. Exceptional food, idyllic location. Depending on the tide, wade out, walk out, or let us pole you there in the boat. Be prepared to be impressed.
