The tents at Shu’mata have been designed and positioned to capture the stunning landscape, with 360-degree views of the savannah and Kilimanjaro. Positioned in a line along the ridge, there are a total of seven that form the unique and adventurous compound.
Each of the tents is self contained, with a full bath and private veranda with room for four. With a sophisticated approach to a traditional safari camp, the interiors and decor have all been designed as a tribute to the bygone era, and are chic and colorful.
Meanwhile, the Hatari Lodge is a former farm that was once the setting for Howard Hawks’ film Hatari! Today, it’s a luxury bush lodge located in woodlands on the edge of the Momella meadow and adjacent to the vast Arusha National Park. The lodge delivers legendary safari spirit with an unexpectedly retro modern design aesthetic.
Hatari is independently owned and is the result of a deep understanding of its neighboring landscapes and inhabitants. The rooms and facilities have personalities that reveal secrets about regional art forms, and the experience is designed to allow guests to “dwell poetically”. Hatari is a unique and idyllic retreat, perfect for exploring wild and beautiful Africa.
