The Lodge consists of 3 buildings housing nine comfortable ‘retro’ decorated rooms, each with an open fireplace and private facilities. The oldest building is used as the central living and dining room and here you will also find a comfy lounge and bar area where you can relax after sampling the delicious cuisine on offer! If you prefer, you can simply sit and look at the surrounding acacia woodland from the veranda and viewing deck.
Outside there are breathtaking views onto the Momella Swamp where you can get friendly with the resident giraffe from the viewing platform! Other visitors include warthogs, buffalo, waterbuck and if you’re very lucky, elephant.
Hatari Safari Lodge was once the home of the actor Hardy Kruger who bought the property in 1960, having starred in the film of the same name with John Wayne. Part of the production was filmed in the photogenic surrounding area.
There are many activities available to guests staying at Hatari Safari Lodge, the most obvious being game drives in the surrounding area.
A drive to Big Momella offers the chance to view many wetland bird species as well as flamingos, whilst a visit to Little Momella offers you the chance to see buffalo and waterbuck up close – maybe even Hippotamus if you’re extremely lucky! You can also take a canoe out on the waters should you feel tempted.
If you’re feeling energetic, why not take a game walk with a Maasai naturalist to learn about the variety and use of the many plants growing nearby?
