Let us inspire you with two of our favourite places to explore in Tanzania....travel somewhere a little bit different...
"Slowing down to appreciate, stopping to explore, staying longer to discover and ultimately realising that by relaxing one can find the heart. Chem Chem Safaris Tanzania"
Choosing accommodation in any East African country can be a headache to say the least and often we are not sure where to start first! Should we stay here or should we go there, it can all become quite time consuming. So we have decided to give you a sneak peak into two of Tanzania’s luxury safari camps that we know you will enjoy, and be sure to add them to your next bucket list adventure.
Firstly we will start with the lovely area of Lake Manyara and the stunning lodge and camp of Chem Chem Safaris Tanzania. Founded by Nico and Fabia this intimate luxury camp will encourage and educate you on the importance of a “slow safari”. Spending time in any destination needs ample opportunity to be explored, and to make the most out of your safari experience. Enjoy Chem Chem’s approach to conservation and community development, plus a selection of game viewing options such as walking and wildlife tracking. With eight stylish tents, lake views, it boasts all of the amenities of home. Activities include a day trip to Tarangire National Park and are a wildlife highlight especially if elephants are your animal of choice. A leisurely walk on the edge of Lake Manyara or simply watch a beautiful African sunset to complete your already wonderful day.
Secondly the remote Greystoke Mahale a rustic, luxury camp unique for it’s location and sandy beaches that make up the shores of Lake Tanganyika. At the base of the Mahale mountains you will find 6 wooden thatched bandas, blending in with nature and create the feeling that you are the only one there. Spend your days tracking chimpanzees and be in awe of how remarkable these creatures really are. Combine a forest walk with afternoon sundowners out on a wooden dhow or simply sit up on your chill out deck and relax.
Three and four night stays are the minimum time we recommend to explore these different and both fascinating destinations.
Both Chem Chem and Nomad’s Tanzania Greystoke Mahale are part of the Pack for a Purpose supporting local communities in need.
