Extraordinary experiences...

"There is something about SAFARI LIFE that makes you forget all our sorrows and FEEL as if you had drunk half a bottle of CHAMPAGNE - bubbling over with HEARTFELT GRATITUDE for being alive..."



The essence of Chem Chem is founded not on fast-paced adventures, but on slowing down to truly immerse within the wildness, the lifestyle, the moment of being on safari in one of Africa's great wildlife areas. Our experiences have been carefully conceived to allow our guests the most opportunity to absorb the sights, smells and emotions of safari life. 


From private vehicles to walking alongside Maasai warriors, climbing hills to see the sun rise over the valley, calming spending time with elephants or sipping a refreshing drink on lake shores... Each is a moment to savour - each a chance

Walking with elephants...


Chem Chem Lodge offers a full gym, and soon Little Chem Chem will open their new gym tent. Our camps currently offer 'gym in a bag', but outside lies an opportunity to get active in nature...

From Little & Forest Chem Chem, climb our tallest hills early in the morning and gaze over the bush and village land as the sun kisses the landscape at dawn or capture the spirit of adventure with a Big Game Safari Walk.

From Chem Chem Lodge, guests can test their mettle on a run with a Maasai warrior across the shores of Lake Manyara or enjoy a lengthy amble through out the landscape abundant with giraffe and grazing herds.


Savour the sunlight filtering through the trees...


We offer all of our guests private safari vehicles (subject to availability). This means, our wilderness is their playground to explore.

On a private concession connecting two great national parks, guests can go where their hearts lead them. After morning and afternoon game drives, unwind in the spa (Chem Chem Lodge & Little Chem Chem) or grab a book a swing beneath the trees in dappled shade (Forest Chem Chem). Learn more about our community and people with time in the nearby village or at the school we support.

At the end of each day, come together on the lake shores for evocative sundowners sure to stir the soul.


Picnic in Tarangire National Park...


Staying a few days at Chem Chem? Climb aboard a hot air balloon and sail across the African skies, spotting game along the way. Or spend a day exploring Tarangire National Park (the fees are on us if you stay for more than 3 nights in High Season).

Staying even longer, then take a day to explore the Ngorongoro Crater or Lake Manyara National Parks. You will never run out of things to see.
