We stayed at Ndutu lodge at the end of August this year, unfortunately only for one night.
We had a good time with the whole family!
It was nice and quiet at the lodge, so we were able to explore the bush on our own!
That was great!
Now we have started to save some money again, so we hopefully can come back one day.
Thanks!

Thanks so much for your latest newsletter, the pictures and stories always leave us yearning to visit Ndutu again. [This years visit was our third]. Ndutu is my favourite place in Tanzania but I never seem to be able organize my visit to stay longer.

I have sent some pics we took at Ndutu in June this year. The Hyena cub and the juvenile were at their den and not far from the lodge in the woodland area and were with three adults. The group of lioness were at the end of the lake and were resting in the shade as usual.The Zebra carcass was also near the lake and I thought it looked rather abstract.

Passing the Crater ridge and come to overlook the Serengeti Plain makes my heart beat faster. It is such an overwhelming feeling to visit this area and especially Ndutu Safari Lodge. The lodge is perfectly situated and offers so many biotopes with new experiences in all directions.

Each season has something to give. If the rain has not reached the area yet, we can enjoy the appearance of several cat species before the grass gets high and check water holes that attract everything flying, walking and crawling.

Like each year we liked our holiday very much. It is still unbelievable that you always can see things you did not see before. This year there were the highlights of seeing the striped hyenas looking for there food in the woodland, and laying in front of their holes. We saw the births of Wildebeest and Tommy and the hunting of the lionesses and cheetah. In Selei we were very well cared by the crew and Thomas, who told us a lot about the Masai and their cattle. And, of course, we saw the vultures and swallows at their breeding place in the Olkarien Gorge. At the return from Selei we found in the almost dried up Lake Masek a just born Hippo that could hardly be seen because of the mud that was as black as the baby. I can tell you a lot more about the migration, but the best thing is to see it yourself.

I was at Ndutu for four nights in January 2008 and six nights in March 2008. It was incredible! In January, I saw hundreds of wildebeests and zebras and in March, had the good fortune to see 19 cheetahs.

We have been in Ndutu in February since 3 years. Each year was different: Dry, so that the Wildebeest went away; very wet, so that a lot of cars got stucked, or this year after the burning. But we always saw a lot of Cheetah's.

This year was special because you could spot animals far away. There were running Honeybadgers, an Aardvark out of his hole during the day, more than one Serval Cat and Wild Cats. There were less Steinbucks, Butterflys, Elephants and Lions, but lots and lots of Wildebeest with calves. And, of course, we visited the mother with six and the mother with four, and the mother with three cubs. Because you could see so far away we saw a lot of hunting without disturbing it. We like very much looking at the interaction between the different animals. When you are three weeks in Ndutu you have all the time to wait and look. And going with Hamisi you always see something special: at the moment you think you have seen everything, something new comes crossing you path

We were with the Cheeseman's Ecology Tour this Feb. in Ndutu. Wildersun Safaris provided the drivers. Being able to go off road provided us with many close encounters and better photo opportunities. We are coming back in 2010.

Caroline and myself really look forward to returning each year to Ndutu. We have visited now for 5 years consecutively and are always captivated by the area. Self driving in Ndutu provides a feeling of freedom as we go out looking for our favourite animals, especially the cheetahs.

Images from Ndutu can be found on my website http://www.stephenbelcher.net/

Jambo, I am Cristiana, an old guest, and I promised to send you some picture from my August in Ndutu. All the picture are of animals that I have seen in Ndutu area. About Louise, Paul and Emily, I'm very sorry because, for me, they were an institution in Ndutu but I know the problem....! (small baby...little probem...). I hope and I wish the new manager many success. I wish to say hello to Aadje ...very friendly person. Jambo Jambo to the staff ! I hope came back in the near future.

I spent two wonderful weeks at Ndutu Safari Lodge in April 2007. This is a magic place, and I hope to return very soon. Actually I cannot wait. Aadje is a perfect, and I was fortunate to meet Louise, Paul and little Emily. Everybody makes you feel so welcome and you are sad to have to leave, back to civilization. I saw so many animals every day, that I don't know which to select. So I thought you might like my Cheetahs, and you are very welcome to chose whatever you like for your album.

I thought you might like to see a photo taken about 30 yards in front of our room at a sunset in March 2007. It was the most spectacular sunset of the entire trip!Rick Carlson

This was our second stay at Ndutu and we love it - we will definitely be back again in two years time when we return to Tanzania. Our stay with you from 1st Jan to 4th Jan was not disappointing, to say the least. We found the huge number of wildebeest simply awesome and although the heavy rain made it very difficult for wildlife spotting, we were lucky enough to see the 'honeymoon' lion couple mating, as well as the very old (and tuskless) elephant who we have named "Big Boy" IT was really something special, to see this elephant with the rest of his family, as we realised how big he really is.

We would like to thank Stephen for organising our room when we arrived so we could all stay together. And as usual, a big thank you for Joseph and the other staff in the restaurant who looked after us so well. All the staff throughout the lodge were extremely helpful and we look forward to seeing everyone again.

We have stayed at Ndutu twice (January 2006 five nights, January 2007 seven nights) and will be returning in February 2008 for seven nights. We have some photos taken from Ndutu that you can link to if you wish but we would like to just give you the address and let you post that on your site rather than having you upload our images. ...

Here is the site ...

mostly lions, cheetahs and beautiful birds, but we also photographed the mouse-catching serval last year and also a honey badger.

"Of the five lodges we visited during our tour of the Tanzania parks Ndutu was our favorite. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and very capable staff. We had great luck finding many different animals nearby. Pretty good food, too!"
