A peaceful, traditional and intimate safari lodge with comfortable and tasteful guest cottages.
The lodge is in the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, the south east of the Serengeti eco-system.
Accommodation & Facilities
There are 34 cottages all made from natural materials, 10 with double beds, 5 triples and 18 with 2 single beds. Each has a private veranda with stunning views over Lake Ndutu and an en-suite bathroom. As all of the cottages are on one floor, they have great wheelchair access.
The cottages are spread from the main lodge which has an open sided bar, lounge and dining area. There is also a campfire for guests to sit around in the evenings and share the day’s adventures! Electricity is via a generator, this is on between 0530am and 1300, then from 1800 to 2330. Torches and candles are supplied in your cottages for outside of these times.
Great home cooking is served, starting with a hearty breakfast served at 7am. For those wanting an earlier start there is the option of a continental breakfast or a packed picnic. Lunch is a 3 course meal and there is complimentary tea and coffee available throughout the day in the lounge, including herbal teas and decaffeinated coffee.
There are lots of circuits in the area great for game drives; there are resident guides who will be happy to escort you. Walking safaris are also an option in the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area but you must be accompanied by a NCAA Ranger. As well as this there is some fantastic birding (400 species!) and wildlife right at the lodge, so you don’t need to leave if you want to spend a day relaxing.
Children are welcome at Ndutu Safari Lodge.
