Chem Chem Forest Lodge

Burunge Wildlife Management Area

Forest Lodge envelopes the essence of the Swahili word Kuungana, which means to connect. The lodge is small, strives for a high quality finish and delivers with style. The concession is home to abundant wildlife. With just four luxurious safari tents, Forest Chem Chem can be booked on an exclusive basis for family or friends travelling together.

Set in an area of open forest the feeling is one of a wild area. Tall acacia trees line the sandy pathways, Elephants appear as if by magic in the surrounding bushes and monkeys jump constantly between the trees. The lodge achieves an air of privacy and seclusion and with such a huge concession it is well achieved. Views to the horizon of Africa savanna and wildlife dotting the landscape. You’re unlikely to see other vehicles while on game drive.

Safari Tents

There are four safari tents, three can accommodate double or twin beds, and one two-bedroom family tent, giving the camp a maximum occupancy of ten people. Outside a patio with deckchairs for relaxation during the heat of the day under the trees’.

The camp is a 30-minute drive from Tarangire National Park and most guests visit the park on a full-day trip. Wildlife around Forest Chem Chem is very good, with Lion prides and Elephants regularly seen while enjoying the exclusivity of this private concession. Other activities include walking safaris and night drives.

How to Get There

Fly In

Fly in to Kilimanjaro International Airport with Ethiopian Airlines, Kenya Airways, KLM, Emirates or Qatar Airways.

On arrival you will be met by your safari representative who will assist you on to your light aircraft.

If overnighting in Arusha, we suggest a 20-minute scheduled charter flight from Arusha Airport to Kuro Airstrip in the Tarangire National Park. Your safari starts at touchdown! Your guide will collect you in a game-viewing vehicle with a coffee box or lunch and you will wind your way through the bushveld to Chem Chem Lodge, Little Chem Chem or Forest Chem Chem.

An alternative option is to take a road transfer from Arusha to Chem Chem.

If flying in from the Serengeti, it is best to arrive at Lake Manyara Airport with a road transfer to Chem Chem.
