Welcome to Ndutu Safari Lodge, our traditional and authentic safari lodge. Steeped in history and famous for our homely warmth and generous hospitality, Ndutu offers peace, tranquillity and exceptional wildlife viewing throughout the year.
Mid December – April
Travelling down from Kenya every year the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCAA) plays host to one of the world’s greats natural spectacles – The Great Migration.
Each year, between January and March the migrating herds of over 1.4 million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra return to the nutrient rich Ndutu short grass plains for their calving season. Calving generally peaks around February making for a beautiful natural spectacle of new birth and sightings of some very exciting predator hunting behaviours, most notably that of cheetah hunting. Ndutu Safari Lodge is located in the heart of the action and makes for the perfect place in which to witness one of nature’s most awe-inspiring spectacles.
We have built a reputation over the past 50 years as consistently being the choice of expert guides, professional wildlife photographers, film-makers and biologists alike. The reason? It is simply the best place in the Serengeti eco system to watch and enjoy predators and prey, herds and hunters and is one of the finest locations to witness the extraordinary speed and spectacle of cheetah hunting their prey.
Ndutu Safari lodge is located in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area on the edge of the Southern Serengeti plains filled with acacia trees and wide views across Lake Ndutu. Our Lodge comprises thirty four comfortable stone and thatch en-suite cottages beside a relaxed convivial dining, sitting and bar area all overlooking the ever-changing view of Lake Ndutu.
We are a family at Ndutu and immensely proud of what we do and our dedicated team are key to the success, they are what makes staying with us a very special experience.
