Environment and local community

In 2005 Nigel Firman and Andrea Brunetti set up the Kichanga Foundation. The organisation was created to build local empowerment sustainable projects, mainly focused on childhood and local communities. The foundation built the school of the Michanvi Kae and Michanvi Pingue villages. Guests of the hotel can visit the school and learn more about the projects.

Our opinion

Kichanga Lodge is a real winner – one of the few Lodges now in Zanzibar where you can walk along the beach for hours and not encounter another Lodge or Resort. From the main road you drive for a further kilometre through thick bush land before arriving to the beach & a warm welcome from Francesca & all the staff.

Everything you could possibly need is there for you & nothing is too much trouble.

Relaxation is what it’s all about so if you’re really wanting to take time out to unwind this is the place.
