Situated on a private concession overlooking Lake Manyara, Chem Chem is a lodge where you are encouraged to relax and breathe. The cool interiors offer many spaces to escape to for the signature "slow Safari".
Time to contemplate, walk and dream whilst every need is taken care of by attentive staff. The rooms are large and well-spaced for ultimate privacy and each overlooks the soda lakes, the flamingo and the escarpment beyond.
Don't be surprised if you wake to the sight of a journey of giraffe or perhaps you would prefer to glide on the wind in a hot air balloon? Tarangire is a short drive away for the big game, this is a great place to unwind before or after a safari.
Why we like it
Situated in a nest of African fever trees between Lake Manyara and Tarangire in Tanzania, this idyllic lodge will instantly relax you. We love the lookout deck and the way the dark wood buildings, bright green flora and traditional cream canvas tents showcase the beautiful art on show in the lodge. Chem Chem is a real treat which makes you feel special.
