The exclusive Chem Chem Safari Lodge lies between the immense savannas of Tarangire National Park and the bird-rich waters of Lake Manyara in its own 4000-hectare private land concession. This is the “migration corridor” between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park. Chem Chem is perfect for unforgettable walking safaris and bird watching excursions.
With just eight luxurious tents carefully designed to complement the lush surroundings, each suite-style tented villa offers an elegant bedroom, reading room, full bathroom, outdoor shower and wooden deck area, perfect for evenings by firelight. Furnished in a contemporary vintage style, the interiors are classically chic, featuring dark woods, earthy colours and natural fibres. The discreet service is personalised and geared to your requirements, whether it be a romantic dinner for two in the bush or a relaxing massage under the shade of a baobab tree.
Other facilities within the camp include a dining room serving gourmet fusion cuisine, lounge, library, sundeck, swimming pool and an excellent spa.
The lodge has been thoughtfully placed in extraordinary settings to ensure that guests have the richest and most fulfilling Tanzanian experience. It is nestled amongst an oasis of palms with stunning panoramic views of the Rift Valley’s western escarpment.
The safari opportunities here are excellent and with Tarangire (home to the greatest concentration of Elephant in East Africa) and Lake Manyara on your doorstep, tailor-made excursions are led by some of Tanzania’s most experienced guides.
Activities - Chem Chem offers an unforgettable experience, exploring its private concession on foot or on horseback accompanied by a highly sophisticated safari guide.
Beautiful private picnics, sunset dinners and barbecues can be arranged on the shores of Lake Manyara or under a baobab tree. Special attention has been paid to the Chem Chem Amani Spa, where you will be spoiled by revitalising and relaxing treatments using the all-holistic products of ILA. The lodge also offers day trips to the nearby Tarangire, Manyara and Ngorongoro National Parks.
