Ndutu Safari Lodge Location Map

Ndutu Safari Lodge is situated in the south-eastern part of the Serengeti eco-system. From December through to May, the camp is in the ideal location to witness the Great Migration. Thousands of wildebeest calve on the lush green Southern Serengeti plains in February, but from June through November, the plains are dry and the great herds are gone. This is the time when the resident animals converge around Ndutu's waterholes and marshes - elephants, giraffes, impalas, and every kind of cat. 

Tucked well away from the busy tourist circuit, Ndutu offers peace and tranquillity far from the madding crowd.  Spend some time here and truly unwind. Relax to the rhythm of an African day as a myriad bird calls herald the rising sun. Stay close to the lodge and enjoy the resident wildlife, or go for a drive and explore the range of habitats that lie within easy reach. After sunset return to the homely warmth and hospitality of Ndutu Safari Lodge.

Shaded by majestic acacia trees, each of the 34 simple and comfortable stone and thatch en-suite cottages, which are built of local materials, have a private veranda facing Lake Ndutu.

The lodge is surrounded by indigenous trees and shrubs which encourage a host of birds and mammals to come right to your front door.

A 5 night safari holiday followed by 6 nights in a beach hotel on the north-east coast of Zanzibar within steps to a white powder beach. Could you be persuaded? This holiday is best enjoyed in February when millions of wildebeest calve on the Ndutu plains - but outside of this narrow time frame, the game viewing is still good. From June through November, when the plains are dry and the great herds gone, the resident animals converge around Ndutu's waterholes and marshes - elephants, giraffes, impalas, every kind of cat and a profusion of birds. From December onwards, the migrating herds of wildebeest make an appearance and the plains become alive with activity.

This is a 12 night itinerary including Arusha, Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Zanzibar.
