Ndutu Safari Lodge Attractions
The lodge still has the informal, intimate feeling of the original bush camp, built by legendary hunter George Dove in the sixties. Now, comfortable cottages have replaced tents, but the main buildings place no barriers between you and nature.
At sun-downer you can enjoy a drink whilst watching the sunset and feeding the birds. At night-time, you can kick back and relax around the campfire and spend some time contemplating the vast African sky and the myriad of stars.
During dinner the resident genet cats come in for a look on a custom built platform.
Many photographers and film makers have made Ndutu their base over the years including Hugo Van Lawick, Jane Goodall, Rheinhard Kuenkle and the BBC.
Ndutu Safari Lodge Facilities
Thirty two bungalows extend from the open sided bar, lounge and dining room. En suite rooms are simply furnished and each unit has a private veranda looking onto the lake.
Ndutu Safari Lodge Additional Information
Ndutu is the best place to be for the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. They come here during the rains from December through May. They calve on the plains in February, they gallop through the woodlands, swim across the lake and attract the predators.
From June through November, the plains are dry and the great herds gone. This is the time when the resident animals converge around Ndutu's waterholes and marshes - elephant, giraffe, impala, five species of cat and a profusion of birds.
