The South-eastern coastline of Zanzibar is recognised as amongst the most beautiful. Home to our nature inspired, award winning Kichanga Lodge with beautiful indigenous gardens, private beach and an array of activities.

The soul of Zanzibar in nature's luxury.

All about the island’s soul, this lodge with on-the-beach accommodation is best for unwinding and checking back-in with oneself.

Situated on its own hillside with large private beach, everything about Kichanga reflects the best of Zanzibar’s flow and pace. Time here is dictated by nature, where our guests reconnect with themselves, each other, and their passion for life.

Our boutique lodge features 12 thatched, open ceiling, stand-alone spacious bungalows and 2 villas. All have ocean views, are en-suite and have private patios complete with hammocks. Perfect for couples, families, groups and honeymooners seeking a peaceful retreat, well located from which to explore magical Zanzibar.

The restaurant, snack bar and social heart of Kichanga is the ‘Club House’ with lounge, reading spaces, TV lounge, views over the ocean, and our gorgeous bar.

All furniture and décor items have been hand-crafted, each telling its own story. Give our on-site tailor 24 hours to make up an item of clothing for you.

Take in the sun, order refreshments from the beach bar. Lounge at the private pool, snorkel, beach walk, kayak and explore the reefs. Diving, kite-boarding, sunset cruises, and sailing are on the doorstep.

Our guests struggle to leave. But rest assured, they’re inspired for the next part of life’s journey.
