“You can now get to our beautifully situated camp much faster with this newly introduced flight.”
“Beginning from Shu'mata we are now able to offer a planned or spontaneous Flying Safari to Serengeti or a trip to Swahili Coast, Pangani and Saadani and further to Zanzibar.”
(Marlies Gabriel)

Starting at Hatari Lodge we offer different safaris to the Arusha National Park over our own safari company The African Embassy Safaris. You may visit the Ngurdoto Crater (the little brother of the famous Ngorongoro Crater) or you have a canoeing safari on the Momella Lakes passing by thousands of flamingos. In combination with a stay at Shu'mata Camp at the foot of Mt.
