Situated on a small hill, with only the apexes of the thatched roofs visible among the trees, Kichaka Luxury Game Lodge looks out over a large water hole in the Lalibela Game Reserve in South Africa's temperate Eastern Cape. This lodge is the perfect fusion of intimate accommodation and authentic and personalised safari experience.
The Eastern Cape is quickly becoming popular for malaria-free big-game safaris. The temperate climate and gently undulating hills lend themselves to excellent game-viewing, thanks to fewer trees, no malaria and better vantage points. Game drives and nature walks offered by Kichaka are some of the best around. The reserve is teeming with rhino, cheetah, lion, elephant, buffalo, hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, many species of antelope and a host of fascinating nocturnal creatures. When not out on safari, be pampered at the on-site spa facilities.
Ten exclusive Luxury Chalets dot the hillside and are appointed with hotel-like luxury and amenities: full en-suite bathroom, private deck, under-floor heating, air conditioning, heated plunge pool, lounge, mini-bar, internet access and 24-hour room service. Indulge in all-inclusive local cuisine, prepared by an expert chef and served with a collection of award-winning South African wines.
