Chem Chem Highlights

Owner run and managed by Fabia Bausch & Nicolas Negre, Chem Chem exudes simple elegance. Lying in a 4,000ha private wildlife concession between Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks this stunning lodge's central focus is on relaxation and letting the wildlife come to you. With experiences on offer within the concession such as walking safaris, tracking, picnics, visiting Maasai villages, and dining under the stars as well as 4x4 daytime and evening game drives, Chem Chem's enviable remote location enables guests to experience a highly personalised safari experience. The concept of Slow Safari was born at Chem Chem Safari Lodge. Key is the ethos of a safari as a tangible, sensual experience beyond the confines of a vehicle, where on foot guests can see, feel, touch and smell the African bush for themselves.

Chem Chem Game Viewing and Activities

So easily accessable, Chem Chem is situated perfectly to explore both Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks. Being in its own concession it offers a huge variety of activities including night drives and track reading walks to learn how to identify animal footprints.
