What’s it to be: a ‘soft safari’ or a back-to-basics experience that’s all about the Big Five? How about both? Chem Chem is a beautiful camp in a private concession beside Tarangire National Park. With its excellent dining, well-stocked bar and peaceful library, it’s all about dropping down the gears. Start the day with a morning hill climb, the views are worth the effort. Game drives follow, in open vehicles in Tarangire park. Afternoons are rounded off with fabulous sundowners by the edge of the lake; life on safari doesn't get much better.

Over at Little Chem Chem, it's all about accelerating (mainly in pursuit of big game). This is an authentic safari experience - especially during drier months - and a real back to nature experience, sleeping under canvas in beautifully styled vintage tents. We like to combine a stint at both, to really get the best of both worlds.

And for families wishing to have an entire camp to themselves, we'd suggest Forest Chem Chem, an intimate private bush camp where up to 6 adults and 2 children can have a safari experience to last them a lifetime.
