The lodge is located within the Arusha National Park, near Momella Farm, where movie star Hardy Krüger lived for 13 years. During the shooting of the film Hatari! (1962 with John Wayne) he had fallen in love with the area. Every room of the Hatari lodge has an open fireplace and a spacious bathroom en suite, furnished in the style of the 60s and 70s – the time of “Hatari!” and the beginning of photo safaris in Tanzania.
The oldest building serves as a large central living and dining room and the veranda with bar and viewing terrace overlooks the grassy plains of Arusha National Park, on clear days you can also see Kilimanjaro. From here you can watch wild animals like zebras, giraffes and even buffalos grazing. The 9 rooms at Hatari Lodge are all uniquely designed, but follow the same retro theme. Each room has room for a desk and very comfortable beds. Meanwhile the lodge also offers 3 villas, ideal for families.
