Hatari Lodge is an amazing lodge, with beautiful landscaping to great you, cosy and very interesting African decor, and excellent food and service. The views are beautiful with Cape Buffalo and giraffes right there at the edges and monkeys on 'campus'.

Lovely property located in Arusha National Park. We were greeted upon arrival at 2300h w a hearty bowl of vegetable soup. The staff were warm and engaging. The meals are leaning to “farm to table movement”w lots of healthy vegetarian dishes. The chef came out to plan our safari lunch with us- which was delicious! The bedroom was well appointed and our fireplace was lit both evenings for us. Modern amenities are found throughout and the room was spotless. Verveine monkeys are found around the property. Giraffes come into the courtyard to munch on the acacia trees! In the morning and evenings Cape buffalo and zebras and giraffes gather in the fields 200 m from the boardwalk- and the occasional buffalo will wander through the courtyard. I would definitely recommend Hatari Lodge- it was worth the price of admission.

Response from taesafarist, Inhaber at Hatari Lodge

Liebe Kerstin, leider habe ich erst heute nach ihrer Mitteilung über unsere Bewertungs-Platform von ihrem Unfall erfahren. Gut das ihnen nicht passiert ist und das Sie nicht in die Scherben getreten sind. Ich warte auf die detailierten Bericht vom Lodge Management und werde mich auch mit Chamaleon Reisen in Verbindung setzen. Sobald ich alle Infos zusammen habe melde ich mich bei Chamaleon und freue mich dieses unangenehme und sicherlich nicht absichtliche Geschehen durch eine Kleinigkeit wieder gut zu machen. Unsere Glässer sind upcyclet ( aus recycling glass ) von Frauen in Ostafrika handgeblasen die wir mit unserem Einkauf unterstutzen. und leider kommt es immer wieder wegen Rücksichlosigkeit zu Bruch. Aber es gibt auch Unfälle ... und hier wollen wir auch unterscheiden. Ich melde mich umgehend. Herzliche Grusse Marlies Gabriel

Hatari Lodge was the first place we stayed when we arrived in Tanzania and we loved every minute of it! The staff was friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived! The lodge felt like home and our stay was excellent! Favorite part of the lodge was being able to see the animals so close and hands down, the food was AMAZING! Great initiative to eat healthy and sustainable and to support local small farmers. Some of the best food we had while on our vacation in Tanzania! Highly recommend the Hatari Lodge to anyone visiting Tanzania!
