The Little Chem Chem Corridor has a voice

It’s 6 am and the concert of birds has already begun. Outside my tent, a pink silhouette of Flamingos fills the horizon over the Tarangire National Park – one of the most beautiful sights, but also a symbol of life.

During the night, our three resident lion brothers were very vocal - breaking the evening’s silence with their powerful roars; making it known that Little Chem Chem is their home. The lions’ roars were abruptly interrupted by the trumpeting of elephants, reminding them that they are not the only ones that call Little Chem Chem home. I agree with the elephants, I feel just as much at home on the concession as they all do.

Though, three years ago, it was a very different story. The nights were a lot more silent as local hunting and meat poaching destroyed the concessions wildlife. When Nicolas and I decided to add Little Chem Chem to the concession of Chem Chem, our aim was to bring life back to the once bustling, wildlife corridor between Lake Manyara and Tarangire. The corridor comprises of 20 miles of unfenced land on the border of the Tarangire National Park, making it a haven for the African Wildlife. The Tarangire Ecosystem is known for its high diversity of animals, especially the elephants – Tarangire’s masterpiece. Little Chem Chem offers guests this rich diversity, but with the luxury of a completely private wildlife area. Allowing guests to go off the beaten path and truly experience Safari at its best.

As I get ready to start my day, I glance at the positive pink line again, the symbol of hope, the symbol of a new future, the symbol of life.
