Set between two streams in the lush valley of the Eastern Cape, the exclusive Kichaka Lodge sits on a malaria-free, 75 square kilometre large game reserve next to a picturesque pond.

to even the most demanding visitor.
The highest importance has been placed on the distinguished guest’s satisfaction in terms of unsurpassed luxury and an exceptional experience of lodgings in the bush.
Every single one of the ten exclusive suites has been carefully and meticulously designed and appointed with fine details. The Kichaka Lodge’s suites do not carry numbers but are instead named after one of several indigenous bushes planted around it.
Incorporating the traditional African style, the cottages have been constructed from natural stones and feature a thatched roof. The generous and clever architecture radiates a singularly airy ambience.
The views from the cottages onto the hotel’s property and the surrounding wilderness are magnificent. Traversing a beautifully landscaped garden, a winding pathway connects each suite to the main building.
At the first taste, the kitchen will have you convinced of the South African cuisine’s merits. The local dishes and the international creations alike will treat you to tantalizing gourmet delights. You may also indulge in the fine cuisine in the privacy of your suite or on your personal terrace enjoying the peaceful nature around you. There is no limit to the gourmet pleasures you might enjoy.
Spend your free time between safaris tanning yourself under the powerful African sun on your terrace or take refuge from the heat in the private pool belonging to each suite. The pools –a rarity in South Africa- are heated in winter.
Despite all the other pleasures and thrills to be experienced, do not forget to savour the harmonic atmosphere of your suite and its stunning environment reading a good book.
Whatever your choices may be – Kichaka will exceed your expectations!
