Little Chem Chem is a vintage-style tented camp situated on the edge of an acacia forest and overlooking the freshwater lake, Lake Burunge. The camp is surrounded by the characteristic landscape of the Tarangire River with its impressive Baobab trees.

There are 5 tents at Little Chem Chem, each with a large bedroom (3 have king-size beds and the other 2 have twin beds), a vanity area with dressing room, a rocking chair and study desk as well as an ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet. Uniquely each tent also offers a private fire pit.

This traditional Out of Africa-style safari camp is run by its hands-on owners Fabia Bausch and Nicolas Negre who pride themselves on serving their guests delicious wholesome fare which is beautifully presented - a marvel for being cooked in a bush kitchen. It's sister camp Chem Chem Lodge can be visited by arrangement, where there is a spa and pool.

Review of Little Chem Chem

John Helmer

The camp at Little Chem Chem was a very unique experience as the zebra and wildebeest loved to graze near the camp/ eating area. We saw a few herds of 100+ animals and they came right up to the truck. Being so close to the animals brings a new perspective and was incredible.

Sadly the game viewing was not to expectation due to heavy rains before & whilst we were there. But thanks to Mike our guide who went all out to find us as game & information as he could. Thanks to Jenny & her team for making our stay so welcoming. The food was most delicious & well thought out and our accommodation & view very special
