General Information

The lodge served as a temporary home for John Wayne and Hardy Krueger while filming the famous ‘Hatari’ in 1960.

Momella is set in beautiful gardens and comprises a cluster of two person bandas surrounding the main building which houses a restaurant and bar. Accommodation is in either detached bungalows with a porch or thatched-roof huts which are a little smaller and circular shaped, and connected to a circular bathroom.

There are no fireplaces but Momella is an ideal base for climbing Mount Meru. Each banda is twin-bedded, has electric lighting and hot showers. 
There is a swimming pool in the gardens. Wild animals including elephant and buffalo are frequently seen roaming just a short distance away from the lodge grounds. Also watch for primates(including black and white colobus monkey).


Momella Wildlife Lodge is among the most famous wildlife lodges in Tanzania and is situated at the foot of Mount Meru in Arusha National Park.
