The concept of a slow safari was born at Chem Chem out of a deep passion for the African bush. In essence, a slow safari allows you to experience Africa at its most raw – it is a tangible, sensual experience beyond the confines of a vehicle, where you can, on foot, see, feel, touch and smell the African bush. It is very easy to get caught up in the 4x4 ‘rush hour’ in a fevered quest to spot the ‘Big Five’, however true safari aficionados understand it is what you discover yourself – and sometimes about yourself – outside the vehicle, that counts.

Some experiences that form part of Chem Chem’s slow safari ethos include walking safaris with a private guide in Chem Chem’s 4000 hectare private wildlife concession, learning to read wildlife tracks and spoor, wilderness picnics, visiting Maasai villages, dining under the stars or simply taking the time to sit and absorb the expansive Tanzanian landscape with a glass of Pinot Noir in hand.
