Our time spent at Kichaka was amazing, the staff were delightful, so helpful and friendly. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun and excellent with our 3 boys.
The outlook over the waterhole from our bedrooms made the holiday particularly memorable as the hippos (7) were great entertainment and were that constant reminder we were in Africa.
We saw plenty of game on every drive, including a couple of lion chase a warthog family.
Our boys were a little concerned that there may not have been enough food but this was never the case, the food was abundant and such a wonderful variety and quality that not for a moment did they ever feel hungry.
Kichaka and it’s staff really have been the highlight of our trip to South Africa.
Thank you for such a wonderful memory and one that I’m sure our boys and us will treasure for a long time to come.

After our first S.Africa experience we ended our holiday on safari at Kichaka, what a fantastic end to our holiday. From our first meeting to our final morning all staff and rangers, especially ours David made the whole stay complete. All could not do enough to make our stay any more relaxed and complete. Thank you all at Kichaka we will come back. Anne Smith and James Pearse

Lodges were amazing and the welcome was so nice.

Food was amazing, plentiful and the chef even made up some special dishes for me as I don't eat beef.

Staff were great and safari guides were knowledgeable and accommodating.

We spent 2 nights here with our friends. Rooms were beautifully laid out and very spacious along with a great bathroom, dressing room area, huge bath and a his and hers clothing closet. Bed very comfortable, lovely lounge area. Private pool and outside shower. Underfloor heating. Bar fridge. Safe in the room. No TV (which is great). Has WiFi. Local hippos put on a great display. We also saw various type of buck, birds and elephant, as well as lion. Not quite the Kruger but well worth the visit. It was our wedding anniversary we were very well treated - cake after dinner which we shared with the other guests. Dancing children in traditional clothing. After dinner on returning to our room the bath had been run and was filled with rose petals. Very romantic. Also has massage facilities.

Room Tip: Great introduction to the bush and very romantic

WOW. What an amazing two nights. We had such a great time at Kichaka. Jason, our guide, was well-informed, fun and knew how to find the best animals! We saw lions, giraffes, elephants, zebras, warthogs, hippos, rhinos, antelopes of all types, monkeys, I could go on.

We had such fun on the drives and then the food was delicious. We were so catered after at all times. Cannot recommend more highly.
