Main description of Chem Chem

Owner run and managed by Fabia Bausch & Nicolas Negre, Chem Chem exudes simple elegance. Lying in a 4,000ha private wildlife concession between Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks this stunning lodge's central focus is on relaxation and letting the wildlife come to you. Enjoy experiences within the concession such as walking safaris, tracking, picnics, visiting Maasai villages, and dining under the stars as well as 4x4 daytime and evening game drives. Chem Chem's enviable remote location enables guests to experience a highly personalised safari experience. Outside of the concession Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks are a short drive away and offer a rich diversity of wildlife and scenery.

Eight beautifully stylish and secluded tents have been designed to reflect the ethos of the camp, evoking the spirit of vintage safari. With each tent situated at least 80 metres apart from each other, you are ensured total privacy and stunning lake views. A pool is hidden beneath the trees to cool off from the midday sun, and the Amani Spa offers the ultimate in relaxation.

The concept of Slow Safari was born at Chem Chem Safari Lodge.  Key is the ethos of a safari as a tangible, sensual experience beyond the confines of a vehicle, where on foot guests can see, feel, touch and smell the African bush for themselves.
