Chem Chem is a luxury safari in Tanzania, where guests can enjoy the concept of a slow safari; a way of enjoying the sights and scenes of some of the most beautiful locations in Tanzania, without having to rush inside a 4×4 in order to take as many photos of wildlife as you possibly can within the limited time period you can actually see the animals from up close. The slow safari won’t pressure you at all, as it allows you to experience the African wildlife and natural environment at its most raw, by walking along selected paths within the 4000 hectare private wildlife concession, with a private guide, on foot! You can feel, touch and smell what it’s like to live in the African bushland, and will definitely come to see our world – and yourself – in a different light.
The Chem Chem’s slow safari ethos includes various other activities, as well, such as picnics in the wild, tracking lessons, exploring Maasai villages, or even dining under the night sky!
The guests can stay at either of two sister properties, the Chem Chem Safari Lodge, or the Little Chem Chem camp:
The Lodge is located between the Tarangire National Park, and Lake Manyara, in a privileged Wildlife Management area, which is called ‘Burunge’. The Lodge is built on the western side of the wildlife concession, and features eight separate suites which surround a super luxurious main house.
The atmosphere resembles that of a vintage safari camp, and the architecture of the main Lodge is extraordinary; its design resembles a flamingo, with widespread wings! On one wing, there is a full service gourmet restaurant, whereas on the other, there is a bar, a lounge area, a fireplace and also a library. The Lodge’s viewing deck offers guests the opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous view over Lake Manyara, whereas the pool, which is located in the shade of various trees, will help them cool off. The Chem Chem Amani Spa is perfect for those who seek absolute relaxation!
The Little Chem Chem camp is located near a gorgeous acacia forest, and is surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. The nearby Lake Burubge and the Tarangire River, along with the Babati mountain range, create an enchanting background for your authentic safari memories. The exclusive luxury safari camp only has space for 10 guests, which makes the experience even more precious. The wildlife around the camp is so abundant, that you will be able to see wild animals roaming around, even without leaving the comfort of your base – however, the Little Chem Chem camp is the best spot from which to start exploring the most breathtaking African scenery on foot! Since wherever there is water, there is life, you can expect to see various animals and birds during your trips!
