Chem Chem Safari Lodge Tanzania is a wildlife-rich area of great beauty situated between the Tarangire National Park and the Lake Manyara National Park.

The Chem Chem is within the Burunge Wildlife Management Area. Guests privacy is guaranteed as well as the best wildlife viewing experiences as no other lodges or camps have traversing rights in this area.

Located in the migration corridor, visitors are ensured an unbeatable wildlife experience evening from the comfort of their suite. With animals always moving through this pristine 20 000-hectare wilderness, it has become a wildlife lover’s dream.

Chem has eight spacious tent-style suites are ideal for wildlife watching. Each of the Luxury Tents offers scenic views across a dry salt pan and offer convenient amenities and features to ensure a most comfortable stay.

Each of the eight tents is situated at least 80 metres apart to ensure total privacy, with spectacular lake views. The family tent is an additional 52m2 tent (with two single beds and its bathroom and dressing room) connected by a 1.6m wooden bridge from one of the suites.

Space, silence, and serenity characterize the Chem Chem Lodge also known as 'the sunset camp', being luxurious without being lavish. This unique safari camp blends in naturally with the unfenced wilderness which surrounds it. The facilities are designed for a fulfilling experience with nature.

The public space of the lodge resembles the elegant shape of a flamingo with its wings spread out for landing. The one side features the gourmet dining room as well as the outside fire pit. The other arm provides the fully-stocked bar, the comfortable lounge, fireplace and library.

Guests staying at Chem Chem have the choice to do everything or to do nothing. No matter if guests explore the bushveld on foot, or in a wildlife viewing vehicle or relax at the camp, this unique safari destination offers unforgettable experiences.

Families are welcome to Chem Chem to explore, discover, and connect. Travellers with children spend valuable time together during safari experiences, hands-on conservation as well as community involvement. The Chem Chem family suite and Little Chem Chem Family Tent features two bedrooms and two bathrooms host three children 16 and under and two adults.

The nearest international airport is the Kilimanjaro Airport. Depending on the landing time, guests may continue their journey to the lodge or stay for one night in Arusha, starting their safari the next day. For guests who stay over in the town of Arusha in Tanzania, the 22-minute scheduled charter flight from Arusha to Kuro Airstrip in the Tarangire Park is recommended.

From this airport, the lodge's guide collects travellers in a wildlife-viewing vehicle with a coffee box or lunch and transfer you through the untamed bushveld to the Chem Chem Lodge or the Little Chem Chem Lodge.
An alternative option of how to get to this safari lodge is to take a road transfer from Arusha to Chem Chem direct. For guests who fly in from the Serengeti, it is recommended to arrive at Lake Manyara Airport which is then followed by a road transfer to the Chem Chem Safari Lodge.
