My sons and I spent some of the most wonderful days of our lives at Ndutu.... I promised to send you pictures from our May 18, 19 and 20 visit to Ndutu. As we were nearing the lodge, we saw these lions mating, which they carried on doing for the next three days! The next day we sat up with this cheetah mother with three cubs as they fed on a wildebeest calf. The migration had just begun and by the 20th, the wildebeest and zebra were all gone! The feeding cheetahs were interrupted by a spotted hyena and they eventually lost their kill to the marauder, watched by two tawny eagles and a huge flock of fighting and noisy vultures. Hope you like the photos.

The last ten days of April 06, we spent our Easter holidays in Tanzania, 3 of them at Ndutu lodge, where we visit the Ndutu area on six morning and afternoon safaris.

Apart for some heavy, but short showers, the weather was good, with beautiful lights and wonderful skys. Thanks to that rain, the landscape was fantastic, there was green and water everywhere.

Wildlife was great, after four African safaris, Ndutu has been our best area for predators and we have seen plenty of lions and cheetah (ten diferents in 3 days) and, of course, the marvelous migration, with wildbeest and zebra everywhere.

We had 2 rooms at Ndutu Lodge, they were very nice and we really enjoy the quiet and relax after lunch and dinner.

Ndutu has been one of our top destination in Africa, and we are sure we will come back In the near future.

February 2008: Almost 2 years after my visit to Ndutu I have finally concluded my galleries.
I am sending you the link to my Ndutu gallery, maybe you can add it to my comment so people can visit it.

Dear Aadje: We are pleased to take advantage of the "News and Views" segment of Ndutu's web page. Our second trip to your lodge was for five days in April, 2006. Your accomodations are excellent, the staff courteous and helpful and the food is a good as any we have experienced in thirteen countries in Africa. Some of the attached photos were taken in the close vacinity of the Lodge like the leopard, lion cubs and ground hornbill. Others such as adult lions, cheetah and wildebeest hers were photographed on a day trip out to the kopje area just inside Serengeti Park.

In your latest Newsletter you wrote of seeing four ground hornbills near the lodge. We think they might be the exact four we watched in April.

We visited Ndutu in mid January 06 and had a really great time. I've been on several trips in Africa (South Africa, Botswana, etc.) but the Serengeti, especially the Ndutu area, is unrivalled both in its beauty and its game. We missed the wildebeest migration unfortunately, the big rains arrived just after we had gone back home (Italy for me and the US for my mom Dianne), but despite that our gameviewing was exceptional: in one week we saw 80 lions - 30 cheetahs - 5 leopards just to mention some cat numbers, plus a couple of highlights such as a black rhino with calf at Moru, 12 hyenas harassing 2 lionesses on a kill near Seronera, and a big blond male lion mock charging at us while we were looking at him from behind the restrooms at Naabi gate. It was indeed a great experience and our 6 night stay at Ndutu Lodge was wonderful. Here are a few shots of our encounters.

Will definitely come back soon!

Gentlepersons,

Here are only a few of the many stunning photographs taken during our safari ....

What an incredible safari indeed at the Serengeti and especially at Ndutu area. In addition to the astonishing wildlife and unspoiled ecosystem, it was a impressive learning journey. We are grateful to everyone at Ndutu for making this possible.

The emotions felt whilst on safari are inexpressible. Now it is very difficult for to deal with our nostalgia. Thus, we must return again very soon..

Yet another excellent 8 day safari at a 'dry' Ndutu. The cat photo opportunities were above expectations and I have included a few of my photos as examples. Again many thanks to Paul, Louise and all the staff that made this stay at Ndutu Lodge even more memorable than the previous four.

Hi Louise Paul and all - wow what a great few days we had at Ndutu. Before we left Canada I went back and read every single newsletter on your web site so I was so excited to finally arrive - what a very special place, we were thrilled to see your resident genets- what a treat - we also were so lucky to come upon a python on a late afternoon drive - he was in the creek and then came out to hunt, our guide said he was just a small one only about 10 feet long.

We also saw a lioness and her 3 cubs on our way out along with 3 striped hyenas which I understand are quite rare - I can't stop thinking of our trip to Tanzania and Kenya - no wonder everyone falls in love with East Africa - We hope to return one day - Visiting Ndutu was one of the highlights - have a great summer, say hi to the Genet family.

With much affection for Ndutu.

Ndutu is one of those places that you try and keep to yourself. However, after 8 days there, you just have to share the secret with those who will appreciate the peace, good food, good company, but above all the opportunity to see African wildlife at its best. Truly one of life's most amazing experiences... Aadje is to be congratulated, along with her staff, on performing near miracles in the African Bush.

Thank you for an amazing stay! It was my favorite lodge. I felt so welcomed here! It was rustic, but not too rustic! I want to come back again!

In 2004 and again in 2005 we spent 10 amazing days at Ndutu Safari Lodge during the migration. It's wonderful to stay at a place with both unequaled wildlife experiences, and great food and accommodations. Louise and Paul run a tight ship with a very friendly and efficient staff.

We've been on safari 8 times with prior trips to southern Africa. But once we experienced the variety and amount of wildlife within an easy drive of Ndutu, we had to return there. From gray crowned cranes, egrets and rollers in flight, to honey badgers, lions and leopards on kills, vast herds of zebra, elephant, wildebeest and gazelle - every day was a delight. Three brother cheetahs thrilled us with their hunting.

In the last 3 photos the wildebeest yearling was attacked by one of the brothers, and after a valiant struggle managed to free itself and run off this full grown male cheetah.

We'll be back.

Like last year, I would like to thank Louise and all the Ndutu Safari Lodge's staff for their kindness. I really love to spend some days during the migration, in a special place, and for me Ndutu is a really special place.

So Thank you very much and see you next year. Cheers

P.S. I send you some picture I took this year, I hope you like them

Our stay at Ndutu Lodge was absolutely great and exceeded our expectations!! Why? Because no lodge we have been visiting during our 7 days safari was so wholly integrated into the wilderness of the Ndutu park! This is really an unique experience complemented by the care and kindness of the English Management, the Dutch (partly) owner and their dedicated staff of locals.

During our stay at the Ndutu Lodge during Christmas 2004 we witnessed the birth of a zebra baby and have some excellent digital pictures.

Hereby I send you some pics.

I have made them around 9.30 in the morning on the 27th of October 2004. I had been on safari (my first ever) for about 8 days and had already seen all that I hoped for, that is with exception of cheetahs. I only stayed at the Lodge for 3 nights. And after having stayed in tents all nights before, this was a welcome oasis of rest, good food and luxury. On my first morning I already got lucky.

After a while of driving around we saw some vultures in the near distance and decided to check out what was going on. As we game closer we saw they where struggling for the remains of a kill, but were where the predators? It turned out they where just 10 or 20 meters away from the car on the other side of the road.

It was a great moment that I will never forget. And it proves you don't have to be here in the migration season to get a great time.

On my arrival in Ndutu again last month and whilst driving towards the lodge, I was welcomed by a handsome lion and a lioness close by the causeway and when I arrived at the lodge a few minutes later, it was like coming home. I find it great, waking up in the morning with zebras grazing close to my bungalow or driving out on the plains and watching my beloved cats and the endless rows of wildebeest with their little calves or sitting out on the verandah until late in the evening, enjoying the stars in the African night sky, watching a little hare or a genet and listening to the lions` roar not so far away. These are precious moments in my life and I`m very grateful that I have been able to experience them !

Thank you Louise and Paul, for showing me the beauty of Ndutu with your eyes on that wonderful Sunday and thank you Aadje for your friendliness and your warmth. It`s admirable seeing how much each one of you care for the animals and their habitat ! My thanks to everyone at Ndutu who made my stay so very special.

The photo of Stella and her calves is especially for you Louise and Paul.

Ndutu is a magic place - I will come back again soon !!

I'm Pietro. I came to your place twice in the last two years, once in November, once the last August. I have seen the wonderful pictures of my friend Anna so I decided to send you some pictures I took during the incredible days I spent at Ndutu. Definitely the best place where to go with incredible wildlife, very gentle staff and a very, very friendly atmosphere. Here is a link to my webpage with wildlife pictures taken in Tanzania. http://www.gusme.it/guests/luraschi/

Thank you very much for all.

We stayed at Ndutu in early February 2004 and had a fantastic time. We were lucky enough to see this lion not far from the camp - we hope it will be good enough for you to put on the web site!
