Hatari Lodge



Hatari Lodge, overlooking the awe-inspiring Mount Kilimajaro is set on the edge of Arusha National Park. Formerly traditional farm buildings, the lodge has been converted into a luxurious boutique hotel with a well-conceived 60s-70s theme, harking back to the beginning of safaris in the area. This century-old lodge has a rich history, once housing the famed German actor Hardy Krueger, and named after the Hollywood movie "Hatari" that was shot in the surrounding area, and is the perfect place from which to explore the magnificent rainforests, lakes, mountains and wildlife of East Africa. Guests can also book a stay at Shu'mata Camp, the former Kilimajaro Safari Camp.


The Hatari Lodge is the perfect location to explore the stunning plains of "Little Serengeti", the fertile Momella Lakes where flamingos wander, the Ngurdoto Crater and the Mount Meru, which towers above at 4,566 metres. The Lodge offers a 4-day climbing tour of the mountain and are happy to arrange Safaris for guests. For adventurous types, take a canoe trip and spot the buffalo at the side of the river, or sit back and relax and watch the wildlife from the game viewing platform. With such diverse bird species in the area, a special bird watching safari is also available, and with over 650 species to look for, it will certainly be a memorable experience.

Guests can also take a trip to the Kilimanjaro Masai Savannah and visit a Masai village where the elders will explain the historical background of their tribe and their traditions. Hatari guests can also book a stay at Shu'mata Camp right at the foot of Kilimanjaro, where elephants, oryx and wildebeest roam in the surrounding savannah, and included in a booking to stay at the camp are safari activities in open-topped vehicles.


Claudia and Johnny cook up Hatari Lodge's wonderful cuisine, which is served in the spacious & homely living area in the oldest of Hatari's buildings.
