Ndutu Safari Lodge: The Lowdown

Extraordinary Africa>Tanzania>Serengeti>Ndutu Safari Lodge

Ndutu Safari Lodge is the only lodge in the Ndutu area, which in the first few months of each year fills with the two million strong herd of wildebeest, zebra, and antelopes.

What’s Ndutu Safari Lodge really like?

Built in the 1960’s it has a charming, low-key and unfussy feel, and is a great value option for the area.  There are 34 simple, cosy cottages that provide functional, adequate accommodation with an ensuite bathroom. When we stayed we found the fire to be a great spot for chatting to other guests during the evening, and the dining room served warming, wholesome food. In all, while this doesn’t perhaps have quite the degree of luxury of some of the ultra high-end tented camps in this area, it is full of character, authenticity and atmosphere, and is in a phenomenal location for catching the wildebeest migration early in the year (if you can get space!).

What can I do at Ndutu Safari Lodge?

Our guests who stay at Ndutu Safari Lodge will usually arrive with one of our guides and a private vehicle for game drives. Technically the lodge is located in the far north of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, however the flat open plains of this area make it a Serengeti style experience, and indeed, as you are right on the border you may well find your game drives crossing back and forth between the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation area.
