Choosing accommodation in any East African country can be a headache to say the least and often it’s hard to know where to start! Should we stay here or should we go there? It can all become quite time-consuming, so we’ve decided to give a sneak peak into two of Tanzania’s luxury safari camps that we know you’d enjoy, so be sure to add them to your next bucket list adventure.
Chem Chem Safaris Tanzania
The first camp is in 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 and lake views, it boasts all of the amenities of home, as well as activities that include a day trip to Tarangire National Park. Enjoy a leisurely walk on the edge of Lake Manyara or simply watch a beautiful African sunset to complete your already wonderful day.
The second camp is the remote Greystoke Mahale; a rustic, luxury camp unique for its 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 creating 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 to four night stays are the minimum times recommended to explore these different and fascinating destinations.
Both Chem Chem Safaris and Nomad’s Tanzania Greystoke Mahale are part of the Pack for a Purpose supporting local communities in need.
