We visited Little Chem Chem with our daughter and son-in-law. It was our second Safari camp and we were a bit concerned about too much repetition. We need not have worried, we had a wonderful time. The accommodations are lovely and the staff attentive ( they provided special drinks to help our upset stomachs) but what sealed the deal was our guide Shaban. Although we had been on game drives at our first Safari camp, he added much new information with his in-depth knowledge of every animal we encountered, from elephant to mongoose. The Location of the camp could not be better, it is on a watering hole and you can watch the animals under a spotlight while you have dinner but it is also near other watering holes and a large game area. For us, it was a perfect introduction to Tanzania!!

Stayed: November 2016, travelled with family

We are a family of four with two boys 15 & 17 this was our first stop in Tanzania and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We were treated like family, I could have sat and talked to Mina all day. Francesco our guide was fantastic his knowledge, friendliness, willingness was the best we came across in Tanzania. Ezekeil our butler was outstanding if we could have taken him home with us we would have. Every other staff member we came across was a pleasure to speak to they were all so friendly and helpful. After Little Chem Chem we stayed in another 3 safari camps and Little Chem Chem was by far the BEST. On Little Chem Chem concession we saw so many animals up close and it was wonderful you could sit outside your tent and watch elephants, zebras, warthogs, wildebeest, giraffe all walk past within metres. We loved the night safaris because we got to see all the nocturnal animals. We went to a local school that Chem Chem support and donated sporting equipment & stationery that we had bought from home this was a fantastic experience. if we could give Liittle Chem Chem more stars than 5 we would give it 10. We would highly recommend Little Chem Chem for the place to say while in Tanzania.

After travel in southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, we arrived for two nights at Little Chem Chem. We were greeted by Mina and her friendly staff, in particular Peter and our safari guide Shaban. Since we were the only people staying at the camp we had an exceptional amount of attention, though I am sure they are just as helpful and hospitable with a full house. The tents are elegant and plush and arranged for a great view of the water hole and a small, distant lake. The camp is in a concession area and is quiet and private. The owners have made great strides in attracting animals from the adjoining Tarangire National Park and elephants have found the area around the camp very desireable. We saw many birds and other large and small mammals near the camp and were able to take two walking safaris during our stay. Both a welcome change from driving, which is great but walking is a very different and interesting perspective. Chris and Shaban provided the nature information and looked after our safety. The food was fresh and excellent and care was taken at every meal to provide what we wanted. We were even moved to different dining areas so we had a more fullfilling experience over the course of two days. Little Chem Chem is a gem and I highly recommend a stay, if you have the chance. Don't miss the Sundowners, they are a great experience and memorable.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.

This camp was more rustic than it's big sister Chem Chem, but offered the amazing up close experience and easy access to the concession, that requires a 45 minute drive from the more luxurious main Chem Chem camp. The location meant more time to see the cheetahs and other local residents.
We had a fantastic experience here for my birthday...a warning...beware of the birthday cake "served" at sundowner! It looked real and was frosted...we laughed until our sides hurt!
The graciousness and warmth of the staff and our guide Shabon will stay with me for the rest of my life.

If you are wondering why Little Chem Chem doesn't have as many reviews as other camps, we can tell you why:
1. It is a relatively new camp
2. It only has 5 tents - making the number of people who will write a review very small.

But, don't let the discourage you. After stopping at 3 different top-rated safari camps/hotels throughout Tanzania, it is very clear to us that Little Chem Chem is one of the best. From the people/service, to the food, the accommodations, to the wildlife, Little Chem Chem is a great camp. We would highly recommend this to anyone!

The Lions were a nice treat, as were the abundance of elephants.

We stayed at Little Chem Chem as one of the first stops on our honeymoon. At the time, we knew that it was a great experience, but after travelling around Tanzania and the Seychelles, we can say with confidence that you will not be disappointed. No detail was missed. Amani, Francisco and the rest of the team were perfect and did a great job.

We would highly recommend Little Chem Chem for part of your next Safari adventure! thank you Little Chem Chem team for making our stay so special and memorable.

Room Tip: With only 5 rooms, there is not a bad room! Each of the tents face the Lake and you view the animals grazing.
