Chem Chem Lodge
Chem Chem Safari Lodge is situated in a private concession, Burunge Wildlife Management Area, which lies between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara. Chem Chem has done excellent conservation work by purchasing the hunting licenses in the corridor between Manyara and Tarangire, making it safe for wildlife to roam freely.
It is without a doubt one of our favorite properties in Tanzania and our clients have always been extremely happy there. The eight spacious tented suites are tastefully decorated and have a deck and day bed that provide a wonderful area to relax and unwind. Luxurious bathrooms include both indoor and outdoor showers and a comfortable bathtub. The lodge doesn’t take children under 12, but accommodation for families with older kids is available.
Chem Chem Lodge offers sundowners at Lake Manyara, game drives, bush walks, and sumptuous dinners romantically served in different locations each evening. Guests can visit a Maasai village where the local community shows you their customary ways of life. Day trips to Tarangire or the Lake Manyara National Park (1.5 hours away) can also be arranged. It also has two sister properties, Little Chem Chem and Forest Chem Chem, which border Tarangire National Park.
We like to combine Chem Chem Safari Lodge with a few nights at Singita Sasakwa, Faru Faru or Sabora in the Serengeti. We recommend starting or ending your safari here as it is a place to simply relax and experience the beauty of the wilderness around you.
