We love this time of the year in Tanzania. Between the short rains in November and the long rains in April/May, it is the warmest time of the year with beautiful days. This was traditionally the high season before the 'migration fixation' and now offers great value and wonderful weather. The wildebeest are in the southern parts of the Serengeti to give birth to their young and Lake Manyara is full of flamingoes.

Too often travellers want a guarantee of no rain! But for those who are not afraid of a few showers, this is a lovely time to travel. Please note that many camps are closed during April and May.
Little Chem Chem is closed 1 April - 30 May | Chem Chem Lodge is closed 1 April - 30 May

We are aware this time of the year fits in with many annual holidays, especially families with school children, and it combines perfectly with a wonderful time to be on safari. Days are lovely and warm with cooler nights and normally very little rain. This makes for our peak safari season and therefore we do suggest making your bookings well in advance. Safaris in private concessions such as Mwiba and Chem Chem are highly sought after as other areas become overcrowded.

One of our best seasons to visit Tanzania and it is the perfect time for travellers who are not bound by school holidays. These are wonderful months and can be getting hot and dry before the November short rains.

Chem Chem Lodge

With 20 000 hectares (55 000 acres) of untainted African bush, the Chem Chem - Burunge Wildlife Management Area (WMA) protects an invaluable migration corridor between the ancient landscape of Tarangire National Park and the tranquil waters of Lake Manyara National Park. It is the perfect place to connect with the rolling wilderness around you and to immerse yourself in an authentic Tanzanian wilderness experience. The concept of a Slow Safari was born at Chem Chem. Key is the ethos of a safari as a tangible, sensual experience beyond the confines of a vehicle, where on foot guests can see, feel, touch and smell the African bush for themselves. The eight beautifully stylish and secluded tented suites have been designed to reflect..
