Luxury Holidays At Chem Chem

Ideally nestled between the striking Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks, charming Chem Chem is spread across three camps. The first, Chem Chem Lodge, lies on the eastern side of Lake Manyara and features eight luxurious tented suites, complete with bathtubs and outdoor showers. Raised walkways lead you to the central lounge, dining area, bar and swimming pool. The six tents at Little Chem Chem, meanwhile, best capture the beautiful sunrise over the African bush. After your day on safari, reflect on your wildlife encounters around your private fire pit. The most secluded of the three, Forest Chem Chem is a private camp, ideal for families and friends travelling together. There are two double tents and a family suite, which can accommodate two adults and two children.  What's more, private game drives mean that you have the flexibility to decide your own timings and itineraries, allowing you to explore this incredible part of Tanzania exactly how it suits you.

The décor throughout Chem Chem exudes a sense of vintage Africa, so expect calming neutral colours, stunning antique furniture and oil-filled lanterns. Each tent offers privacy and uninterrupted views of the wilderness outside, so don’t be surprised if you spot an elephant strolling by as you enjoy your locally-sourced and inspired cuisine.

Property Highlights:expand_more

Chem Chem is wonderfully located between two stunning Tanzanian National Parks - Tarangire and Lake Manyara - making it a great base to explore both without the need to move accommodation. Full and half day safaris can be taken in Tarangire National Park, home of the famed 'Big Five': leopard, lion, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo. After searching the wilderness for this glorious game, enjoy a full day at Lake Manyara, famous for its prolific bird life and, in particular, the seasonal arrival of flamingos.

Hotel Experiences

From Chem Chem, take a fascinating walking tour with a Maasai warrior to gain a greater insight into their culture, learning about how they have lived for centuries in harmony with the wild animals around them. The Maasai are renowned for their fitness and long distance endurance so, if you're up for a challenge, why not join them for a morning run and workout session? Alternatively, improve your photographic skills as you join a professional wildlife photographer on safari. They will show how to capture the best shots of the incredible wildlife around you, providing lifelong skills and wonderful souvenirs. Visits to local schools are also arranged, allowing you to experience true Tanzania while meeting the lovely locals.
