About the Property

Chem Chem embodies a heartfelt narrative of boundless landscapes, vast skies, and a shared aspiration. Nestled within the pristine 20,000-hectare (55,000-acre) expanse of the Chem Chem - Burunge Wildlife Management Area (WMA) lies three distinct locations: Chem Chem Lodge, Little Chem Chem, and Forest Chem Chem. Each of these destinations is meticulously designed to evoke the essence, opulence, and intimacy of a bygone safari era. Tucked within a lush palm-dotted oasis on the WMA's western fringe, you'll find a 5-star accommodation consisting of a grand main house and eight discreet tent-style suites. These 100-square-meter suites combine canvas, lava stones, and wood to ensure privacy, featuring indoor/outdoor showers, cozy reading nooks, dressing areas, private patios, and sweeping vistas. The main Lodge's permanent structure is ingeniously shaped like a flamingo with outstretched wings, one housing a gourmet restaurant and an outdoor fireplace, and the other offering a bar, lounge, fireplace, and a well-stocked library. A viewing deck affords breathtaking views of Lake Manyara, while hidden among the trees, a gym and a pool invite outdoor exploration, and the Chem Chem Spa redefines the concept of complete relaxation.
