Goodbye COVID? Hello new normal ...


Inspired by classic safari traditions, Legendary Expeditions is built upon a profound passion for an abundant future for Tanzania’s remote regions. A collection of lodges and tented camps offers a rich, diverse perspective on the country’s wilderness. This is not about the camps alone, equally the journey between. With a safari and conservation company that has access to over 3.4 million acres of wilderness, you explore remote and unspoilt regions with your private guide. From 4x4 drives and big game safari walks to hunting with the Hadza, dancing with the Datoga and following the migration, your expedition is underpinned by a philanthropic vision that celebrates adventure in vast African wildernesses.

Panelist: Sean Clark — Director of Sales & Marketing
*We have new camp images for Mila Tented Camp and Legendary Serengeti Camp.


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.

Panelist: Nicolas Negre — Co-Owner & visionary of Chem Chem Safaris


For the past 20 years Nomad has owned and operated outstanding safari camps in three of Tanzania's remotest corners. Their camps were the pioneers in parts of the country few people had heard of at the time, and fewer still had visited. Since those early days, Nomad’s enduring obsession with Tanzania’s wild places and their promise remains giving you a truly original and exhilarating safari experience.
Panelist: Petra Meyr - Head of Safari Operations

WHAT WE LOVE: This low-key, unassuming country is also home to some of Africa’s most famed tourist destinations: Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Kilimanjaro, and Zanzibar. While most visitors will congregate at these undeniably exotic spots, Tanzania has many other hidden natural, historical and cultural gems; including 19th-century caravan routes, once-famed ports of call for Oriental merchant ships, ancient rock paintings, Africa’s largest protected natural area (Selous), as well as prime destinations for seeing chimpanzees in the wild. All this is held together by the beauty and dignity of over 100 ethnic groups that live amicably in Tanzania.



Walking time from Bilimungwe is ± 3 hours and Zungulila ± 2½ hours. Drive time from Mfuwe Lodge: ± 3½ hours.
The Kapamba River is only meters in front of camp, and guests can bathe, walk or enjoy sundowners in the river. With an exotic Mediterranean touch, the four chalets are open-fronted with wrought iron gates. There are 2 twin chalets (queen size beds) and 2 double chalets each (king size bed each), all with open-fronted, en-suite bathrooms featuring large double showers.
