Zimbabwe

WHAT WE LOVE:  Zimbabwe must be one of the most beautiful and scenic countries in Africa with wonderful weather.  It certainly does have political challenges but we feel extremely optimistic about the future of this destination.  Landlocked between the mighty Limpopo and Zambezi rivers, Zimbabwe is a country rich in natural and cultural heritage. From the Great Zimbabwe ruins in the south, to the magnificent Victoria Falls, known locally as ‘the smoke that thunders’ on its northern border, Zimbabwe offers beautiful scenery, wildlife and friendly people.

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 the ethos of the camp, evoking the spirit of vintage safari. With each tented suite situated at least 80 metres apart from each other, you are ensured total privacy each with a stunning lake view. A pool is hidden beneath the trees to cool off from the midday sun, and the Chem Chem Spa offers the ultimate in relaxation. 

Chem Chem Lodge is the ultimate setting from which to explore on foot, slow down and indulge in a sensual African safari.
