Chem Chem Safari Lodge

Tarangire National Park


Chem Chem Safari Lodge Location Map

The exclusive Chem Chem Lodge is situated on the far western border of the exclusive Burunge Wildlife Management Area which runs between Lake Manyara and the wildlife-rich Tarangire National Park.  You arrive and immediately feel an affinity with the space, the silence, the serenity.  Feel the echoes of a vintage safari lodge as urban stresses melt away. Nowhere does the lodge impose, but rather blends in with the unfenced wilderness that stretches on all sides.

Explore the game-rich environment with day trips to the nearby Tarangire National Park, or discover the areas surrounding the lodge on foot with a guided walking safari and a Masai warrior by your side, or see the landscape from above with a birds-eye view on a helicopter flip.  Opportunities to immerse yourself in the culture of the land abounds with visits to the local village and school, or listen to a Masai choir as they share their stories through song.

The lodge’s main areas include a gourmet dining area and an outside fire pit, a fully-stocked bar, lounge, fireplace and brimming library. A viewing deck offers vistas that stretch forever over the East African wilderness, and the secluded pool among the acacia and palm trees gives cool relief from the afternoon heat. 

As night beckons, enjoy a sundowner on the edge of Lake Manyara ahead of dinner which is held in a different location each night.

Each of the 8 spacious tent-style suites offers ultra-luxurious accommodation under the immense African skies. The suites feature natural textures and surfaces such as wood, canvas, cotton and lava rock. Fall asleep in the softest bedlinen to the distant laugh of a hyena, the click of crickets, or a nightjar’s call. Awake to the sounds of the wilderness stretching and yawning. Your privacy is ensured with the nearest neighbour at least 80m away. This is your cocoon.

The watering holes in front of the lodge mean there is a constant ebb and flow of wildlife on your doorstep. Look up from your book and gaze at a zebra grazing in front of you. A few pages later, graceful giraffe drift past. Your stay here invites an unhurried experience - all you have to do is look and listen as it unfolds in front of you.
