Set on its own vast private nature reserve between Tarangire and Lake Manyara, this privately owned lodge is one of the very best in Northern Tanzania and a stand out option for those looking for luxury twinned with home comforts.
Chem Chem is set in a private concession meaning guests can do activities not available in the National Parks, walking, horseback, night drives etc.
Owned and operated by ex-professional safari guide Nicolas and his wife Fabia, the emphasis at Chem Chem is providing first-class safari experiences, alongside conserving the area’s ecosystem.
Guests here can expect the best guides and five star service, however Chem Chem maintains a homely and welcoming feel and the atmosphere is informal and relaxed.
Accommodation consists of eight tent-style suites, including one family suite, making Chem Chem well geared to younger travellers and ideal for families of all sizes. All tents are spaced well apart and raised above ground level and are accessed along wooden walkways. Bedrooms feature double or twin beds, bedside tables and lighting, a standing fan, two storage trunks, a tea-and-coffee station, plus a separate seating area. En-suite facilities comprise flush toilet, twin washbasins, a freestanding bathtub with shower attachment plus an outside shower. Every suite also has a private veranda from where you can spot the local wildlife.
The camp’s buffet breakfasts, light lunches, and three-course dinners are enjoyed in the communal lodge which also houses the lounge and bar which has amazing views over the private reserve. Guests looking for a spot of pampering can head to the Amani Spa or those in need of a work out can make use of the camp's gym. In the shade of the trees, the swimming pool is the perfect place for cooling off between activities.
