Each time I visit Ndutu it is different, and this year was special, even though the wildebeest had left the area and migrated north.

I was lucky from my first day, when Marando my patient guide spotted a beautiful young Cheetah in the high grass ready to hunt a gazelle. We saw the Masek pride of 15 lions resting under a tree and watching zebras and gazelles grazing. Two lionesses with three cubs were playing with a dead young wildebeest near Three Trees, and a few days later we saw them resting under a tree watching a lone zebra on the plains. The three cheetah brothers were not far away. We followed a cheetah near the marsh, and one morning had breakfast with the two brothers resting in the bush.My safari to the Rift Valley was a bonus and a special experience. The stars at Ndutu are amazing, sitting around the camp fire at Salei they were so close I thought I could touch them.

We walked with Thomas and Jackson, our guides, and visited a school of 1300 pupils with 13 teachers!! What an experience, the children were very excited and actually invaded me. Fortunately Jackson in the end came to my rescue.Apart from so many cats (except leopards)at Ndutu, we spotted a lonely male cheetah and oryx at Salei, large herds of eland, elephants, gazelles, giraffes (a herd of 26 near Shifting Sands) to name only a few.

Asanti sana Aadje for your generous hospitality. You and your staff spoiled me, and it was nice to meet so many interesting people at Ndutu.
