A largish, back-to-basics lodge, Ndutu Safari Lodge is located in northern Tanzania, in the south-eastern part of Serengeti National Park. With a reputation for providing its guests with a no nonsense safari experience, Ndutu has over the years played host to a number wildlife luminaries, including Jane Goodall and Hugo van Lawick.
A stone and thatch build, Ndutu Safari Lodge consists of the main lodge and 34 sleeping rooms. The shared areas, which include a bar, lounge, dining area and verandah, overlook Lake Ndutu, and the furniture is a mixture of stone benching, wicker chairs and heavy wood tables. The service - which, in total, is comprised of 80 staff - is excellent, very much hands-on, and the food is fresh, home made and generous.
While there is something barrack-like about the positioning of Ndutu's rooms, the view is stunning, and the rooms themselves are simple, clean and beautifully kept. With 10 doubles, 5 triples, 1 family and 20 twins, there is no end of choice. Each has a verandah, a separate bathroom, seating area and writing desk. Soft furnishings are limited to hand-woven rugs, east African patterned hangings and the odd local artefact. Note: room service is limited to morning wake up drinks.
Activities at Ndutu Safari Lodge include game drives, guided walks, bird viewing and archaeological trips.
