We (a mature couple) stayed at Kichanga Lodge for one week in mid-December. The overall impression was excellent. We looked for a beautiful, remote and relaxing location, and we found it. Management and staff are really friendly - thank you, George, Suheila, Tina and the waiters team! The ocean view bungalow offered plenty of space and was comfortable and reasonably...

Nice location, good food and great help from staff members. Kids truly enjoyed the stay at Kichanga. the 'Zanazibari' dinner on Sunday was simply superb. I will urge management to consider installing air conditioners in each lodge. While plenty of sea breeze and sunshine is available to be enjoyed sometime I think guests might just like to chill out in...

It was by far the best beach in Zanzibar I have seen. The staff were very friendly. The terrace and the view from the bungalow was absolutely stunning, the sofa and the hammock on the terrace were really nice. I loved how calm the place was, how private, both the bungalow and the beach. The terrace is great for doing...

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...

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...

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....

Nice place with a stunning beach. We stayed in the larger hut with an upstairs and it was rather rustic... Windy at night so the curtains were flapping constantly (no glass in windows). 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...
