Nestled beneath Mount Meru and gazing out across the wilderness of Arusha National Park, Hatari Lodge offers a calm introduction to Africa and Tanzania. It's named after the 1960's John Wayne movie Hatari! which was filmed in the surrounding area. Hardy Kruger, one of Wayne's co-stars, fell in love with the area and moved permanently to Tanzania. His farm now makes up part of the luxury Hatari Lodge. Decor blends retro 1960's artwork with modern Africa and has an extremely distinctive feel, with each room individually designed. As wild Tanzania stretches out from your verandah, and bushbabies can be heard chirping from the trees, Hatari Lodge is a place to relax after the flight while still experiencing the charms of Africa. You'll be greeted at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transferred here, where your dinner is included. As the locals will say to you in Swahili, karibu, welcome.
