Ndutu Safari Lodge is situated in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the southern Serengeti eco-system. The Lodge nestles unobtrusively under a canopy of giant acacias overlooking a soda lake, Lake Ndutu.
The lodge offers a superb base in which to explore the range of habitats that lie within easy reach, this include swamps, woodlands, soda lakes and the world famous Serengeti short grass plains.
Ndutu Safari Lodge consists of 34 stone cottages that extend from the central, open-sided bar, lounge and dining room.
Each room has it’s own verandah that overlooks Lake Ndutu. All rooms have en-suite facilities. The cottages are made from local materials and offer comfortable, tasteful accommodation.
Ten rooms have a double bed, and there are five triple rooms. There is one family room, which can accommodate up to 2 adults and 2 children. All other rooms have 2 single beds. All the rooms are single storey and are accessible with a wheel chair.
All rooms have electric lights; there are also torches and candles in the rooms for use when the generator has been switched off at night. There are no fences around Ndutu Safari Lodge and wild animals wander through the lodge.
Children are welcome at Ndutu Safari Lodge but an adult must supervise them at all times. It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure the safety of their children.
Each evening the lodge welcomes guests to join them around the camp-fire. For those not wanting to sit outside, the bar provides a warm, cosy atmosphere.
The genets, small spotted cat-like animals, usually make an appearance and gaze down at you from the rafters. The genets have been here for years and as they are nocturnal it is a great pleasure for guests to be able to see them at such a close proximity.
There are many game-drive circuits around Ndutu. Walking is allowed in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and you will be accompanied by a NCAA ranger. Most walks are usually around 2 hours in duration but they can be varied in length.
