Family of US food dynasty win EC game farm battle

Luxury game lodge Kichaka has lost a vital court battle to continue its access to land owned by the family that founded the American Heinz ketchup and baked beans dynasty.


From Tuesday next week guests staying at the lavish Kichaka Lodge face the inconvenience of having to circumnavigate a massive portion of land bought by the Heinz-Youness family if it wants to game view on the rest of the conservancy.

Kichaka is part of the massive Bayeti Game Conservancy near Grahamstown and in future guests will have to drive along the busy N2, which Kichaka’s Tim Fenner has said detracts from the idea of being on a game farm in Africa.
