- The closest international airport is Kilimanjaro. Depending on flight arrival time you may need to overnight in Arusha, and start your safari the next day.
- If overnighting in Arusha we suggest a 20-minute scheduled charter flight from Arusha Airport to Kuro Airstrip in the Tarangire National
Your safari starts at touchdown! Your guide will collect you in a game-viewing vehicle with a coffee box or lunch and you will wind your way through the bushveld to Chem Chem Lodge or Little Chem Chem.
- An alternative option is to take a road transfer from Arusha to Chem Chem.
- If flying in from the Serengeti, it is best to arrive at Lake Manyara Airport with a road transfer to Chem Chem.
