Chem Chem Lodge blends in with the wilderness that stretches on all sides. Chem Chem’s main Lodge reflects the form of a flamingo with its wings spread wide for landing. One wing holds the full-service gourmet restaurant and an outside fire place, the other wing offers a bar, lounge, fire place and fully stocked library. The Lodge also boasts a viewing deck with views over Lake Manyara. Outside, discover the gym or the pool hidden in the trees while the Chem Chem Spa offers utter relaxation.
The spacious eight tent-style suites (100 m²) offer ultra-luxurious accommodation under the immense African skies. Natural textures and surfaces such as wood, canvas, cotton and lava rock convey a sense of merging with your surrounds. Fall asleep in the softest bedlinen to the distant laugh of a hyena, the click of crickets, a nightjar’s call. Awake to the sounds of the wilderness stretching and yawning. Your privacy is ensured with the nearest neighbour at least 80m away. Family groups are catered for with a full suite connected by a small wooden bridge to a vintage-style tented room (50 m²) with its own indoor shower. It can sleep up to three children and two adults.
Walking, night drives, cultural visits and game drives are the main activities on offer in the area. Access by road from Arusha, taking about 2 hours, or alternatively and highly recommended, fly direct to Chem Chem Airstrip near the camp. Enjoy the spa and relaxing pool in this tranquil setting with easy access to Tarangire National Park.
Minimum 2 night stay required.
