Momella Lodge

This old-style hotel is located at the foot of Mount Meru in Arusha Park. The history of Momella goes back to 1907 when a German married couple, Trappe, bought land here and developed a small estate. In 1957 Margarete Trappe died;

in 1960 Hardy Krueger came to Momella to produce the film "Hatari" which starred John Wayne. Soon after the lodge was built and it was opened to "discerning tourists".

Momella is set in beautiful gardens and comprises a cluster of two person bandas surrounding the main building which houses a restaurant and bar. Each banda (hut) 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.

Momella is the ideal base for climbing Mount Meru and a pleasant place to relax after the climb.
