Overview of Little Chem Chem

Little Chem Chem is small but perfectly formed, with an emphasis on a visceral connection to the bush and a strong association with community development through the Lifewildlive partnership. Set in a 14 000-hectare protected area between Tarangire National Park and Lake Burunge in northern Tanzania, Little Chem Chem offers guests unique experiences, such as bush breakfasts and sundowners, conservation safaris with an anti-poaching unit, hot-air balloon safaris and guided nature walk. They will also teach you how to track animals from spoor and droppings, and tasty ‘bush cooking’ experiences. Because it is owner-occupied, service is consistently outstanding.

Decked with antique brass telescopes and oversized leather wingbacks in the library, Little Chem Chem is tented-safari heaven for those seeking true solace in the African wilderness.

      Family Tent

      The family room can accommodate two adults and three children. The spacious tent can be partitioned with canvas to create two separate rooms with en suites.

      General Facilities

      Inspired by the thousands of pastel-pink flamingoes that inhabit Lake Manyara each summer, the central communal area of Little Chem Chem has two large ‘wings’, one comprising the dining area and outside fire pit and the other, the bar, lounge with fireplace and library. As much as possible, these tents are left open to the elements to maintain the connection to nature. Guests also have access to interesting activities like tracking and ‘bush cooking’ lessons, guided walks and hot-air balloon safaris. For those who are looking for a little relaxation, there is also the option of getting a massage. In the evenings, chat – glass in hand – in the cozy fire pit while the billion-star Milky Way passes overhead.

      Highlights at Little Chem Chem include bush breakfasts and picnics, and the show-stopping sunset cocktails at Lake Burunge, with tapas and an unforgettable view. Other meals are taken around a long table crafted from a polished tree trunk, and exceptional attention to detail is placed on multi-course dinners and paired wines. In the still of the hazy dawn light, be gently woken with an early morning coffee service in bed: aromatic hot coffee and tea, and freshly-baked biscuits will be delivered to your door in a charming wicker basket.
