What will you see? It depends on when you visit, because life at Ndutu depends on rain.
From November to May, migratory herds visit the Ndutu area, and provide a feast for the resident predators. Huge numbers of migratory birds come to eat the abundant insects of the plains and to escape the cold European winter. The lakes attract flocks of flamingos and other water birds. Animal viewing is excellent everywhere.
From June through October, the grass turns brown and the great herds leave. The lakes may dry up. But many animals can still eat Acacia foliage and drink at the marshes. Lions, leopards, cheetahs and other predators stay in the area. Birds flock to the Lodge’s birdbaths. Animal viewing is best in the woodlands and around any water sources.
