"Kichaka Expeditions review"

3 nights Arrived 16 Oct 2022
"It is certainly a unique experience at Kichaka! Molli is both knowledgable and passionate about the bush, ably backed up by Moyo who is an excellent guide. Also Vincent who, despite being new to Kichaka, gave us some of our best spotting on the drives to and from the camp.

Molli’s walking safaris are not to be missed and give a unique perspective to seeing the animals close up. Absolutely amazing tracking skills that Molli and Moyo were generous to share with us. The new suites, built by the team during the pandemic, are stunningly appointed, each with their own plunge pool which are huge! Outside baths are a unique and a wonderful indulgence. Only three rooms meant we got a totally individual experience.

Molli and Noelle were wonderful hosts and kept us company at every meal. The food was all lovely but we did find that the lunches were very long giving us very limited down time between our morning walk and afternoon drive. Would have been preferable to have a lighter and quicker lunch so that we could relax and enjoy the amazing rooms and scenery. The remoteness of this camp makes it a unique experience and the only other people we saw were park rangers.

We would love to go back in the rainy season and learn even more from Molli and the Kichaka family." See all these reviews: 11n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar

"Third visit to Kichaka"

5 nights Arrived 14 Sep 2022
"Our third visit and keeps getting better. The new rooms and camp are outstanding but there is still the unique intimate atmosphere.

Quality of guiding as good as ever and great to see Moli developing new people.

Fly camp is a must for the wilderness lover and gives a different perspective and location to explore." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania

"Kichaka Expeditions review"

3 nights Arrived 21 Jun 2022
"I really didn't want to be in a lodge and had hoped to be accommodated in a fly camp, but once I got there, it was so hot that the rooms were a blessed relief. The rooms were incredible! I have stayed at some fabulous hotels, but this must top them all. I had my own swimming pool! The bathroom was heavenly - floating in a bath looking out on the bush. Then sundowner drinks and excellent food. The guiding was excellent, as Molli is so well known for. I found the heat rather difficult, so 5 hours chasing buffalo or tracking lions was quite a lot for me. But - that wasn't a problem, the next day, all I had to do was come along but tell Molli when I had had enough, and he called a Landy, which took me on a driving safari. Nothing was too much bother."
