Chem Chem Safaris, consisting of Chem Chem Lodge and Little Chem Chem, is situated within the private 20,000ha Chem Chem Wildlife Concession between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park. Chem Chem Lodge is set in a 4,000ha private wildlife conservation area on the edge of Lake Manyara.
