Had an amazing time on our honeymoon - the accommodation was clean, modern, very peaceful and the housekeeping staff were very attentive.

The game rides were terrific with Jason leading the way, very good selection of animals in what they consider a much smaller and personal game park compared to Kruger (still the size of Cambridge so pretty big in my opinion!) Only around 10 rooms in the place so a much more personal and intimate vibe which I would choose any day over a large hotel.

Particularly liked the way they greeted you every time you entered the hotel from a ride with a warm towel and a nice stiff drink.

Food was fantastic and always lots of it! I have dietary requirements and they catered beautifully for them (no diary). Great selection of African dishes, Italian and even Asian food.

Would strongly recommend for any couple or family!

I never managed to write a review after my honeymoon but I've never forgotten about my experience. It was a truly unforgettable experience from the amazing food to the thrilling game drives with Chris. The food was simply divine and the homemade chips on game drives were lovely. I loved them so much I asked for them everyday and there was never a no they were made fresh for me when ever I requested this. All I can say is that this was truly magical honeymoon and really hope to return in the future. Thank you for the amazing hospitality and to all the staff who were outstanding.

This place is the place of dreams, nothing can prepare you for the beauty and serenity of this place through from the opulent although gorgeous homely setting of the lodge to the beautiful individual lodges. The staff are extremely attentive although never evident as such you feel immediately welcome and this radiates through your whole stay. The rangers are extremely knowledgable and again nothing is too much trouble and they will go above to ensure you see as much as you ever dreamed possible. Their knowledge of the flora and fauna of the reserve and their intimate knowledge of the reserve as a whole is amazing. Our thanks in this instance for our brilliant guide Ben. Overall this is a place of dreams and the staff make sure they come true. Thank you to Keith the manager of the reserve you and your staff make this an unforgettable stay in every pleasant way possible.

The Lodge, amenities and food were all great however the wonder came from the game drives. We were lucky enough to have head ranger, Chris, who is clearly very passionate about what he does and is a really nice guy too. We enjoyed every single drive despite the cold weather, the rain and the elusive cheetah :-) It was truly memorable.

What a fabulous stay we had at Kichaka. Rooms were very large and nicely decorated, dark wood furniture and wooden floors, inside and outside shower. Big decking area with a plunger pool , which was great for those in between game drive moments. The food was amazing , I would go as far as saying one of the best I have experienced on Safari ( and I have done many). The common areas of the lodge are intimate and relaxing. Our ranger was incredibly knowledgeable ( thank you Chris ) He made every game drive very interesting . I would certainly recommend it.
