Little Chem Chem could be renamed Little Gem Gem, it is such a beautiful and secluded safari camp experience. It oozes comfort and luxury, the communal lounges beautifully appointed with sofas and furniture. The "tents" themselves are incredible, huge comfortable bed with every want catered for, and a phone for room service. The yoga mat is a nice touch, as are the lovely bath products, but what makes Little Chem Chem is the location. From your bed or your private porch you are literally metres away from zebras, wildebeest and elephants. Also, the food was the best we had in 9 days of safari across 3 great locations. It's what you would expect from a high-end restaurant, not a safari camp! Our guide Frank was excellent, very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed being able to do a walk as Little Chem Chem's grounds are private. And sundowners by the lake were magical! All in all, Mina and Chris are running an amazing, boutique, luxury camp. Asante sana!

This camp is beyond belief. Never did we think we would find such a great place from all points of views: location, beautiful and comfortable tents done with taste, no frills, chandeliers in cristal or so called oriental carpets but subtle tones, natural weaves blending in the surrounding nature. Mina and Chris genuine care for the guests, always there when you need them and very discreet otherwise, never imposing anything. Not to mention the so helpful and charming staff. We had a young but very attentive butler by the name of John .The food is excellent and creative, as to the reason of a safari, seeing the game we could not have been more spoiled! Our guide Mike is a Maasai who loves his country, to him it is much more than a job, it is a passion he generously shares with you.
We saw plenty of animals from the leopard or the lion eating their preys or a family of lions, giraffes, zebras, Buffaloes, éléphants, impalas,water bucks, ostriches, jackals, vultures, an infinity of beautiful birds etc....but more than that we learned so much about their habits, what they eat, why their livery is dark or bright or.....
We could not recommend more this place even to senior traveller's like us (85!!) and of course to lovers of nature and perfection.
Congratulations to the owners French and Swiss we had no opportunity to meet but whose imprint you can feel in the smallest details.
Thank you so much to each one of you to have made our trip. ETHNOS

Room Tip: Each one of the five tents have a superb view

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!!

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.
