overview

An elegant and intimate lodge located in a private concession between Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks, Chem Chem offers spectacular views over Lake Manyara itself. Combining European style with African influences, this owner-run lodge brings together earthy yet modern elements.

Perfectly located at the heart of the northern Tanzania safari experience, Chem Chem is a great choice for an itinerary that also takes in Tanzania's flagship destinations - the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Take the time to relax here after all those early-morning starts on safari and enjoy a soothing massage or treatment at the spa.

There is also plenty on offer at Chem Chem: go on a guided walking tour on the private concession, observe thousands of flamingos and other water birds on the lake, or take a private guided safari to the nearby Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks. For an entirely different perspective, book a hot air balloon safari and sail over the landscape of the Great Rift Valley.

Facilities

Chem Chem is a beautifully designed and conceived hideaway. On arrival you are greeted by a spectacular African view framed by the gracious sweep of the main building, which appears to be a natural extension of your surroundings.

Tastefully decorated with exquisite attention to detail, the bar, library and lounge area flow seamlessly into a lounge, the fireplace of which is perfect for snuggling up while sipping on your favourite cocktail. The opposite wing of the building houses the dining area and outside boma where clear evenings are spent next to a crackling fire and gazing at the dazzling array of stars.

Indulge your senses with a treatment in the Amani Spa or laze by the secluded pool terrace - glass in hand - watching animals and birds at the waterhole.
