Kichanga Lodge

One of Zanzibar’s best-kept secrets, Kichanga Lodge, sits among the swaying palms in beautiful Michamvi along on the South Eastern coastline of Zanzibar Island. This private resort hosts charming bungalows with ocean views, nestled within a stunning hillside by the sea.
NB: Prices include international flights & transfers!

Kichanga Lodge not only offers the perfect combination of romance and relaxation, but kite surfing and scuba diving are nearby and can be organized for you. Kichanga is located 65 KM from Stone Town and the airport on the northern tip of the South East peninsula. It takes about one hour by car to get to the Lodge from the airport.

Having experienced Kichanga Lodge first-hand, we can assure you that it is one of the few Lodges now in Zanzibar where you can walk along the beach for miles and not encounter another Lodge or Resort. From the main road you drive for a further kilometre through thick bush land before arriving at the beach, where a warm welcome from Francesca & all the staff awaits you.

Dining & Entertainment
Kichanga’s central clubhouse is a welcoming environment that houses the Reception counter, beach bar, adjacent restaurant, and upstairs alcove for relaxation with an ocean view. It is here that guests are welcomed with delicious fresh juice upon arrival and are briefed on the various elements of their stay. There is a lounge equipped with Wi-Fi and a small library with an extensive selection of books for guests to enjoy. There is even a very talented tailor on-site in order to accommodate any apparel needs of the guests, and to design fabrics or clothing from traditional African Kitenge or Khanga materials.
The beautiful open-air restaurant offers a delectable variety of seafood dishes prepared fresh from local catch, as well as many international cuisine selections. We recommend you try the delicious seafood salad!
Kichanga prides itself on the quality and creativity of the menu, and the friendly, accommodating staff. The location, overlooking the ocean, allows for sundowners along the white sand and romantic dinners lit by golden sunsets.

The beach surrounding Kichanga is conveniently located between two protruding rock points, making it exclusive and private during high tide and perfect for swimming. Footwear is provided for swimmers who wish to explore the reef during low tide, and Zanzibari sunbeds are stationed across the beach for those more interested in relaxing beneath the shade of the palms.
The oval swimming pool is located on a terracotta terrace, overlooking the stunning beach, with large, shaded hammocks and a shower facility to wash away the salt and sand.
