Hatari Lodge, Arusha, Tanzania
The Hatari Lodge is a farm turned luxury bush hotel, located in woodland on the edge of the Momella swamp, right under Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania. The hotel has three buildings containing only nine rooms, each with an open fireplace and en-suite bathroom.
Rather unexpectedly, the rooms are decorated in a sort of retro safari style. Funky plastic furniture and geometric wallpaper from the Sixties and Seventies are accented with sculpted zebra and elephant heads, animal prints, as well as African carvings.
Sit out on the breakfast terrace and enjoy views of dormant volcano Mount Meru, Kilimanjaro and the Arusha National Park. If you’re lucky enough you may see some of the local wildlife too.
Hatari Lodge is your number one Arusha property in the wilderness and only 45 km from Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA), approximately a 1-hour drive. Daily direct connection with KLM from Amsterdam to KIA and a once a week with Thomas Cook/Condor directly from Frankfurt to KIA. More direct options from Europe with Swiss, British Airways, KLM and Kenya Airways to Nairobi and Dar es Salaam with comfortable connecting flights on local airlines.
Hatari offers transfers to the Lodge and an additional benefit for late arrivals (KLM) will be the night drive through Arusha National Park.
Its your perfect base from where to wake up and venture Africa! OR your prefect retreat coming back home after a long safari through the Tanzanian wilderness and National Parks.
