Chem Chem Lodge

Gentle safari in private concession

On the eastern edge of Lake Manyara lies a place of unending loveliness. Here is Chem Chem Lodge, luxurious without being lavish. You arrive and immediately feel an affinity with the space, the silence, the serenity. You feel the echoes of a vintage safari lodge as urban stresses melt away. Nowhere does the Lodge impose, but rather blends in with the unfenced wilderness that stretches on all sides. This exclusive retreat rests on the far western border of an exclusive wildlife concession which forms part of the Burunge Wildlife Management Area that runs between Lake Manyara and wildlife-rich Tarangire National Park.

Why Nale Moru

We know the land.

We seek to show you the authentic Africa. The one that’s at once beautiful and raw, honest and unpredictable. In a place like this, you want to travel with experts. We are a boutique travel company run by experienced guides who have worked these lands for a combined total of 20 years and counting. We take you to our favourite spots, stay at boutique properties in exquisite locations and will never take you somewhere we haven’t been (and loved) already.

We design experiences like no other.

We delight in offering travelers some of the most rare and fascinating moments East Africa has to offer. Group tours and tourist trails are not our style – our itineraries are designed to maximise your safari experience. This includes access to remote areas where you’re likely to have the sunrise to yourself, encounter prominent ecologists and wildlife researchers or receive complimentary room upgrades. Whether it’s the laidback luxury of a casual tented bush camp, the refined elegance of the Singita’s or a boutique house on a remote private concession – we match the flavour of each experience to your style and preference.

We take care of you.

Your experience is our priority. We match you with the most knowledgeable and skilled naturalist guides and meticulously craft your itinerary with the finer details of VIP airport visa service, private transport, necessary permits, and luxury accommodation among many others. We choose only the most reliable suppliers and safest of routes, and we’re always on call to assist you throughout your journey. We understand that your time is precious and take care of everything, so all that’s left for you to do is immerse yourself in the adventure.

We travel responsibly.

We care about the local communities and ecological integrity of the areas we visit. We tread as lightly as possible, use no plastic on safari and provide eco-friendly meal hampers with BPA-free stainless-steel water bottles for your comfort. We are committed to helping East African communities through considered and respectful tourism – and give back as much as we can. That includes carbon offset options, as well as community donations and tree planting. Our commitment to sustainable tourism ensures that African ecosystems thrive and benefit future generations.

We have you covered.

We understand that safaris can be a big investment. So to offer you full financial protection and peace of mind, we carry comprehensive tour operator liability insurance as well as passenger liability insurance. Our safaris also include flying doctor medical evacuation premium.
