On the fringes of a lake in the Serengeti

Neighboured by a small lake and surrounded by acacia woodland, Ndutu Safari Lodge’s location already seems serene enough. What’s more, it can be found in the heart of the Serengeti, at the head of Olduvai Gorge and with the verdant Ngorongoro Crater highlands serving as a backdrop. Experience the Great Migration, the Serengeti, and this UNESCO World Heritage Site safari destination.

One of the most exciting wildlife displays on earth thunders across the Serengeti annually and visitors flock in the hopes of seeing hundreds upon thousands of wildebeest and other ungulates follow the sweet grasses left by Tanzanian rains. Despite this, the Serengeti is a year-round destination with a host of wildlife and over 400 species of bird to be spotted throughout the year.

Ndutu’s 34 Cottages all face Lake Ndutu and have en-suite bathrooms and verandahs from which to enjoy the view. Mealtimes are decadent affairs, with buffet breakfasts, three-course lunches, and four-course dinners. With a campfire lit every evening and an emphasis placed on authenticity — Ndutu offers a world-class and entirely authentic Serengeti safari.
