MOMELLA WILDLIFE LODGE
Momella Wildlife Lodge, among the most famous wildlife lodges in Tanzania, is situated in the lower slopes of Arusha National Park, and its ecological wonders. The Lodge served as the temporary home of John Wayne and Hardy Krueger while filming the famous "Hatari" in 1960 - it offers every amenity in rustic settings for the adventurous traveler.
Arusha National Park is near the city of Arusha, and lies between majestic Mt. Meru and the snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro. The Park includes four distinct land features: Mt. Meru slopes, Highland forest, Ngurdoto Crater and the Momella Lakes.
Animal life is abundant near the Lodge. Watch for primates, (including the black and white colobus monkey) and a mixed variety of mammals (herds of buffalo and hippo). Avid birdwatchers will be rewarded - over 400 species have been recorded! Some migrant species can be spotted between April-October. Close to 50 species of waterfowl reside at the alkaline Momella Lakes and swamps.
From the Lodge, you can easily visit the Ngurdoto Crater, which is over 1 mile across. From the rim you can view the lodge, lakes and Rift Valley.
