Chem Chem Lodge

Luxurious and sophisticated oasis on the edge of Tarangire, on an elephant corridor

Tanzania Tarangire Manyara Chem Chem family safari
Chem Chem Lodge

Chem Chem Lodge is a unique and memorable luxury eco-lodge, located between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park, in an exclusive wildlife concession which is part of a larger wildlife management area.

Game drives at Chem Chem Lodge are mainly done in the private wildlife management area, but full day drives to Tarangire National Park are possible too.

The core philosophy here (and the other two Chem Chem sister properties) is that of Slow Safari, and a deep commitment to the land, its people, and wildlife. The owners of Chem Chem are big investors in the local communities in particular, and the many projects they support, directly and indirectly, can be visited during your stay.

There is a project to appeal to all ages here. This is one of the best lodges in Tanzania for children to learn with the Maasai about their culture, and try such activities as spear throwing, beading their own bracelets, how to make a fire from scratch, and how to use a bow and arrow.

The lakeshore provides the perfect natural pitch for a spot of sundowner football with the local children (or adults!) and the swimming pool and gym area provides hours of down time for all the family.

Why we love it
