From a hunting Hut to a modern Lodge
The famous author Ernest Hemingway was visiting Tanzania in 1934. During his stay, he went for a hunting safari in the area which is today known as Lake Manyara National Park. Later he wrote a book – “The Green Hills of Africa” – and described all his Tanzanian adventures and experiences in it.
Today the book is a ‘challenge’ to many of us, because it describes hunting of animal we are desperately trying to protect in nowadays. But we named our lodge anyway “Green Hills of Africa”, because the place has a similar history: long time ago it was the house of a hunter and his workshop. From here hunting trophies were send around the Globus. This is how the circuit is closing, hunting is part of Tanzania’s history and presence. The story of the book portrays the history, Green Hills of Africa is deeply enrooted in the lively, pulsative and colorful life of Tanzania today.
Our guest rooms are modern and contemporary decorated – always with pragmatism, never without style and comfort. To be honest: no question, we would love to welcome Hemingway today in our lodge. He might take place on the veranda and enjoying the park and the nice view. But instead of hunting with a gun, he would hunt with a camera and, like all our guests, coming home with pictures and no trophies. Maybe he would write another book. Perhaps with a title like “The Return to the Green Hills of Africa”. Possibly made out of his adventures experienced on an awesome safari through the Tanzania of today. Our Tanzania!
