The place became famous in 1962 through the Hollywood movie "Hatari" with John Wayne and Hardy Krüger.

Hardy Krüger built a bush hotel in Momella, which attracted a lot of attention in the 1960s. Today, more than 50 years later, the Hatari Lodge has emerged from the former homes of Hardy Krüger and his then partner Jim Mallory.

 

 

 

The lodge is not only located in a dreamlike setting for Hollywood enthusiasts, but is a safari destination in a great environment. Hatari is located in the middle of a meadow and acacia landscape rich in animals which can be observed from the lodge.

The land of the Big Five: buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and finally rhinoceros.

 

The Ngorongoro Crater on the edge of the Serengeti was created by the collapse of a volcanic mountain. The crater floor is 1700 meters above sea level and has a diameter of about 20 kilometers. An almost unbelievable abundance of animals can be found on an area of 26,400 hectares, perfectly protected by crater walls up to 600 meters high. Bernhard Grzimek and his son Michael are buried on the edge of what is certainly the most famous animal reserve in the world. In 2010 this natural amphitheater was declared a World Heritage Site.

 

 

 

 

Day 6 - Hadzabe

Drive to Lake Eyasi, where you will have the opportunity to visit two of the oldest surviving ethnic groups in Africa: the Hadzabe and the Datoga. Lunch at Gibb’s farm again. In the afternoon the hike to the Elefant Cave is on the program. Dinner and overnight at Gibb’s Farm.

 

 

 

The Hadzabe are traditionally hunter-gatherers and one of the last ethnic groups to have used stone tools in the recent past. They traditionally look for food as far as the Serengeti. Food sources are hunting and the gathering of berries and honey. Although hunting is prohibited in the Serengeti, the Tanzanian authorities make an exception in this case and do not enforce the regulations. We continue to the Datoga, who are skilled blacksmiths and - among other things - make the arrowheads for the Hadzabe.

Transfer to Manyara Airstrip for flight to the south of the Serengeti, your private guide will pick you up for the safari from Airstrip.

Kichakani Serengeti Camp

 

Kichakani Serengeti Camp

This extraordinary escape, based in two set locations across the Serengeti, invites guests to intimately experience the movement of a million-plus wildebeest and zebra as they follow the fresh grasses across the Serengeti plains during the annual migration cycle. 

Staying at Kichakani —Swahili for ‘in the bush’ — means staying in remarkable luxury tents which can be packed up and moved along in a style evocative of the pioneering explorers of the 19th century, yet with all the modern comforts. Handcrafted luggage, easy chairs with an air of mid-century modern, and characterful cabinets and desks, have all been designed to be perfectly portable. This considered modern collection of first-class furniture brings the charm of centuries-ago safari living back up to date.  

 

 

Day 8 & 9 Serengeti

 

 

 

2 more days safari in the southern Serengeti, you can choose between full day game drives with  picnic lunch or morning and afternoon gamedrive and lunch at the camp.

Dinner and overnight at the Kichakani Serengeti Camp.

 

 

 

 

 

The Serengeti includes very different biotopes: the savannah, with its wide, grass-covered plains in the south, the wooded hilly landscape in the west, the Kopjes - sometimes also called "island mountains" - in the east and the bush savannah in the north.

In addition, the area is crossed by a river, which attracts a diverse fauna all year round (buffalo, giraffes, antelopes, cats ...), but is also a habitat for crocodiles and hippos.
