Chem Chem Safaris
More than a safari… A lifestyle

In an ancient landscape lies a place where time seems to slow. Where long hours are filled with delight and discovery, and your sense of wonder is restored. A place where fleeting moments become lifelong memories. Where cultures are shared and traditions celebrated. That place, is Chem Chem.

Bordered by the flamingo-filled shores of Lake Manyara in the west, and the lush landscape of Tarangire National Park to the east, Chem Chem rests effortlessly on a 20 000-hectare wildlife concession in northern Tanzania. Protecting a vital migratory corridor and Wildlife Management Area, Chem Chem conserves a remarkable wilderness while offering visitors the unique opportunity to slow down with the rhythm of Africa.

Chem Chem embraces slow safari. Here you will find just three intimate lodges – Chem Chem Lodge, Little Chem Chem and Forest Chem Chem – sharing this wilderness with the big tuskers and proud Maasai. Fill your days with exploration and discovery, as our expert local guides introduce you to this extraordinary corner of the continent.  Walk with giraffes, marvel at ancient baobabs, embrace serenity and wellness, sip sundowners overlooking the Rift Valley, and discover the rich culture of the Maasai people.
