They filmed some of the John Wayne movie 'Hatari' near Arusha in 1962. Click on 'Hatari Lodge' at the bottom of the Wikipedia page for the movie for some cool pictures. I wouldn't mind having a place with a view like that. Hardy Kruger, an actor in the film, owned the farm where the movie was filmed for years. He is still alive. I think the Great Rift Valley runs around there. Volcanoes are everywhere as the earth's crust slowly gets ripped apart. Light pollution won't be much of a problem and it is just south of the Equator.
