Little Chem Chem
All your senses come alive and you know this is Big Game country. It’s the scent in the breeze, the roar in the night, the padded paw-print in the sand - the wildness is all around you.
Little Chem Chem – also known as “sunrise camp” - offers the raw drama of the East African bush in a very private setting. This gem, on a 16 000ha exclusive concession, adjoins the Tarangire National Park, famous for its towering baobabs, and overlooks the serene Lake Burunge.
The true safari experience is evident everywhere.
A handful of luxury vintage tents guarantee an intimate experience with this untamed land.
Unfenced territory sees animals move through the camp.
Game drives on open-air safari vehicles offer unforgettable moments: watch cheetah sprint across the savannah; observe elephants herds on the move; thrill at the rare sight of tree-climbing lions…
Where there is water there is birdlife. See how Lake Burunge settles into stillness at sunset, your binoculars at the ready as you sip a sundowner.
Step out of the deep comfort of your bed and the cocoon of your luxury tent. Above you the vast, unyielding African sky; around you an acacia-dotted landscape that stretches from horizon to horizon.
Privacy is paramount at Little Chem Chem. The beauty of the six vintage safari-style tents is in their simplicity. There is no excess, only luxurious necessity:
Each has a large bedroom (three have king-size beds, two offer twin beds and there is one family-size tent).
A rocking chair to gaze across the plains and a study desk to make some notes.
A vanity area with a dressing room.
An ensuite bathroom with a shower and flushing toilet.
Listen to the night sounds under a star-strewn sky at your own private fire pit. And at dawn, before a game drive, watch the sun wash over the bushveld. Look at the spoor for clues what passed by your tent as you slept…
Little Chem Chem is a camp designed to look out onto endless, open horizons. It is here where you feel at one with the plains that stretch out around you.
Watch the elephants come and go from the watering hole in front of the camp. Lunch was never as exciting as this!

Little Chem Chem is Big Game territory. See it from a safari vehicle in either the concession area or the Tarangire National Park. Or experience it from the thrill of a helicopter flip or hot air balloon ride. As a bird-watchers’ paradise it provides for fantastic viewing and photographic opportunities. The cultural elements are fulfilling and interesting – visit a local Maasai village to interact with the local community. There are so many choices with which to fill your days and nights – and loads of activities for children too. Be as busy or as quiet as you like…
