A CORNERSTONE OF CONSERVATION, YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS CHEM CHEM LODGE
The exclusive Chem Chem lies in the migration corridor between the immense savannahs of Tarangire National Park and the bird-rich waters of Lake Manyara in its own nearly 50,000 acre private land concession.
Chem Chem Lodge has been thoughtfully placed in extraordinary settings to ensure that you have the richest and most fulfilling Tanzanian experience possible. Nestled in an oasis of palm trees with stunning panoramic views of the Rift Valley's western escarpment, the location is unbeatable. Tarangire National Park is an arid savannah during the dry season and home to lush, green plains during the wet. Herds of elephant, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, and hartebeest roam the plains while marshes are home to hundreds of species of birds. Lake Manyara lies like a glittering jewel in its own national park at the foot of the Rift Valley escarpment. Flamingos hover over the lake like a pink cloud while, drawing water from the lake, other areas of the park are lush with forests and home to troops of baboons. Chem Chem is without a doubt one of the best base camps in all of Africa.
