Dream dream dream! At The Luxury Safari Company, we are constantly dreaming of hopping on that plane and flying down to some distant place in the middle of Africa. We love small boutique lodges, camps and hotels as we know once you step off your vehicle, boat or plane, you will be looked after as though you are floating on cloud like cushion!
One of our favourite places within Africa, within Tanzania to be exact and to be more specific, adjacent to the Tarangire National Park – Chem Chem Lodge is well and truly a firm favourite of ours. You really have to see it to believe it! Everything from the chique simple and smart design, to the friendly and welcoming staff, to the food prepared by dedicated and superb chefs is just brilliant.
Chem Chem’s motif is the ‘slow safari’. Time should be cherished and savoured which is their strong ethos. We spend our lives rushing around, hurrying to meet deadlines, appointments, dashing from meeting to meeting. At Chem Chem, you have time to soak it all in – to smell the earth of the warm savannah, the rustling of the elephants making their way through the bush, the chomping of zebra and wildebeest eating dry grass and to finish it off with a cool gin and tonic on the side of rippling lake as the sun disappears behind the far off escarpment… Have I sold it to you yet?!
