    • Tanzania (Hatari!)


      was filmed on location in Tanganyika,
      (in what is now northern Tanzania).
      Serengeti National Park and Tanganjika National Park,
      Arusha National Park and Meru.

      Many scenes were filmed near Arusha, on a hunting ranch,
      originally known as the Ngongongare Farm,
      belonging to the Trappe family,and was later used
      as the setting for the classic movie “Hatari”, starring John Wayne.

      Jim Mallory’s former house is now the main building of Hatari Lodge.

      The name was chosen in memory of the classic Hollywood movie “Hatari”,
      parts of which were filmed in the immediate surrounding areas.

      Hardy Krüger who played the part of Kurt Muller in the movie,
      bought the property in 1960.
      He wanted a farm in Africa – a dream came true, for 17 years!

      Hardy Krüger’s former home was transformed much later
      into the small and privately managed Ol Donyo Orok Lodge, which closed in 2002.
      Today this house is part of Hatari Lodge, and is inhabited by the
      Gabriel family.

      Harati Lodge as it is now.

      Mount Meru, Tanzania

      The film includes dramatic wildlife chases and the
      magnificent backdrop scenery of Mount Meru, a dormant volcano.

      The final chase through town was filmed in Arusha, Tanzania.
