TANZANIA

THE CHEM CHEM LOVE STORY

CHEM CHEM SAFARIS started with a shared dream between owners, Fabia and Nicolas.

The dream was to create a sensual safari in Tanzania where guests would slow down to really immerse into the area and its age-old rhythms; while restoring an ancient migratory corridor between Tarangire and Lake Manyara, and reigniting the passion within the surrounding communities to help preserve and protect this wilderness.

The result?

  • CHEM CHEM LODGE — where herds of game wander between watering holes, savannah grasslands, and the vast salt pan.
  • LITTLE CHEM CHEM — an elegant tented camp, getting as close to nature as possible, without sacrificing comfort.
  • FOREST CHEM CHEM — an intimate, private bush camp, all about connecting with friends/family and exploring together.
  • ONE (UN)COMMON THREAD — an unforgettable safari that contributes to this dream come true.

Republic of the Congo & Central African Republic

WHAT WE LOVE: The Republic of the Congo and Central African Republic, both former French colonies, are 2 of the 6 countries across which the Congo Basin expands. Second in size to the mighty Amazon, the forests of the Congo Basin contain the greatest number of mammals, primates, birds, amphibians, fish and swallowtail butterflies in Africa. More than a 1,000 species of bird can be found here. The basin is a total of 3.7 million km2 and is home to some of the largest undisturbed stands of tropical rainforest on the planet, in addition to large wetlands. Connecting two of the most iconic locations - Odzala-Kokoua and Dzanga-Sangha National Parks - within this rainforest wilderness offers the most exciting opportunity to discover a part of Africa in a truly pioneering way, while making a significant contribution to the long-term conservation and community sustainability of this region. This is no longer the 'Heart of Darkness'. This is Africa unmasked, beautiful and powerful. This is the most exciting destination to be opening to tourism. This is CONGO CONSERVATION COMPANY waiting for you to discover the most remarkable and unspoilt natural wonders of the continent.
