What a great place! Everything about Hatari is superb. The manager Sebastian is the perfect host and he runs a tip top operation, I can't thank him enough for all the assistance he offered during our short stay. The rooms are a throwback to the 60s when the movie was made but have been modernised just enough as not to...

Spent New Year here, and enjoyed the peace and tranquillity. Good for views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, and ideally located for quick access into Arusha National Park. Good sized rooms, and super views from breakfast table. Staff really friendly.

Two stays in February and March 2016. This beautiful lodge steeped in history and situated on the edge of the amazing Arusha National Park was the perfect place to start and finish our adventure in Tanzania. The room was amazing amid lovely grounds - a treat to go to breakfast past a grazing giraffe, warthog family and the cheeky monkeys....

Hatari Lodge was all I expected and then some. The location is in the Arusha National Park. It is a small lodge, and the service is personal and great. I especially loved the sundowners out in the marsh, on a platform accessible by wooden planks, with campfire ans Savannah Dry!!! You can watch giraffes, buffalo and other animals from there,...

“Although it's convenient I would not choose the room immediately under the patio as your afternoon nap can be disturbed by preparations for dinner.”

“We had room 9 (I'm pretty sure) which was at the end of the building. Very private and peaceful (felt like we were the only ones there!)”

“No rooms are too far from the main mess/house area. They are all in a tight cluster and form what i could see they were all rather similar, albeit decorated with different motifs and styles, and all very elegantly and eclectically. Whatever room you choose, make sure you have a torch or flashlight handy and be almost packed if you are departing early...as the generator only kicks in at 0730 or later. Wifi in the room did not work...and I was very close to the main house, but it did work fine at the main house. Of course once the generator is off...no wifi is available.”
