Hatari Lodge is a truly unique safari lodge. This quirky little lodge, which is found on the border of Arusha National Park in Tanzania, will ensure you have a memorable and fun-filled experience in Africa. The lodge boasts a spectacular setting: it is surrounded by vast bushveld, with Mount Meru and the iconic snow-capped Kilimanjaro as a breathtaking backdrop.
The lodge’s design is original and fun, with a cool Hollywood pedigree theme and a “made in Tanzania” interior that evokes a spirit of adventure. It is named after the 1960s blockbuster movie "Hatari!", which starred John Wayne and was filmed in the region. There are 9 rooms, each individually designed. Facilities include en-suite bathrooms and private decks with views of Meru, Kili, and the Momella clearing.
The main area, which features a lounge, dining room, and bar, also enjoys gorgeous views, and is the ideal spot to kick back after an exciting day on safari.
The opportunities for adventure are endless here. Go on a game drive to the Momella Lakes and Arusha National Park. Enjoy a scenic drive to Shira Plateau, Kilimanjaro, and have a picnic at 3500m! Visit the Meru Crater, hike to Tululusia Waterfalls, and go canoeing in Arusha National Park. Let your surroundings heal you on a healing safari, visit a local village, and learn about the history of the region on an historical tour.
