Indagare Loves

  • The owners/hosts who share their passion and vision with guests
  • The visits to local communities
  • The intimate size of the camp


Chem Chem’s northern Tanzanian lodge is modern and design-conscious, yet intrinsically African. The eight tented suites are comfortable and luxurious, as is the main house, outfitted with a gourmet restaurant and chic bar. Just beyond lies a viewing deck with Lake Manyara in the distance, a pool tucked into the greenery and cozy firepit—ideal for unwinding after safari.

For real relaxation, the Chem Chem Amani Spa offers an array of treatments, any of which can be taken outside under the African sky. Daytime activities thrust guests into a real African experience: with the option to track animals on foot or go for a jog with a Maasai warrior, guests can make their stay as adventurous as they want.

Who Should Stay

Travelers who want luxurious amenities and an authentic safari experience. Children ages ten and older are welcome.
