Chem Chem Safari

Chem Chem, a relatively new Tanzanian property, is composed of two camps – Chem Chem principal Lodge and Little Chem Chem.  The main safari lodge, pictured above, is located in southern Manyara, a gorgeous park with flamingo-filled Lake Manyara, iconic lions draped on tree branches, and lovely landscapes dotted with palm trees.  Little Chem Chem sits 45 minutes south at the opposite end of a wildlife corridot – created by Chem Chem’s owners – on the edge of Tarangire National park.  Tarangire is known for its deciduous woodlands, fabulous baobab trees and the full spectrum of wildlife.



Life is slow in this corner of Africa where you can walk around the Lake, go on night drives, track with the lodge’s superb guides, indulge in the wellness treatments and the excellent food (the chefs have been trained by a michelin starred chef), and enjoy the beautifully styled accommodations.  Chem_Chem_Safari_Lodge_Tanzania_3


Chem Chem is a short 1.5 hour drive from Arusha and a mere 20-minute flight from this hub (the lodge is shortly building its own airstrip).
