Chem Chem

8 tented rooms
Best for 12+
June to March

Chem Chem, meaning 'spring' in Swahili, was opened in June 2011 by Swiss/French couple Fabia Bausch and Nicolas Negre. It stands between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park in its own 40km2 wildlife concession – the Bungi Wildlife Management Area – with beautiful views of the Rift Valley's western escarpment. This luxury tented lodge aims to be a stylish spot for travellers to enjoy the nature around the lodge, or use as a base to visit its two nearby parks.

Our view of Chem Chem

Chem Chem is a peaceful, laid-back and decidedly stylish lodge, with very friendly service and great food. It’s not a lodge for hardcore safari enthusiasts, who are likely to prefer somewhere inside Tarangire or Lake Manyara, or those looking for a budget offering. However, it is very well suited to those who want to relax and enjoy the lodge's natural surroundings, and take advantage of the activities on the private concession.
