A postcard from Melinda...


We may have chatted frequently on email. Being a member of the Chem Chem Reservations Team, I am fortunate to speak with many of our agents throughout the year. I am often asked when is the best time of year to visit, and this really depends on what you hope to see and do.

At this time of year, November through early December, the short rains arrive. With them, thousands of flamingoes descend upon Lake Manyara, the air is cooler and you can enjoy a slow safari with a drive or walk for even longer - in comfort.

These 6 weeks are possibly my favourite time in Tanzania, and yet availability is quite easy to find. Book a last minute trip for 2019, or my top tip for 2020 would be to book a few days during this period at Chem Chem Lodge! It's the perfect temperature and there are boundless things to see, on foot or by vehicle.

Or simply sit on the suite's deck and read a book overlooking the wildlife right in front of each tent. Chem Chem is more than a safari - it's a lifestyle, perfect anytime of year.
