About
Description
Ndutu Safari Lodge, shaded by majestic acacia trees, is situated in the south-eastern part of the Serengeti. The Lodge has thirty four cottages, all built with local materials, with individual verandahs More facing Lake Ndutu. Tucked away from the madding crowd, Ndutu offers peace and tranquility. Stay close to the lodge and enjoy our resident wildlife or go for a drive to explore the surrounding plains or marsh area's. After sunset return to the lodge and sit by the fire and swap stories of your day with other guests or just stare into the fire and listen to the sounds of the bush. Less

Rates are on our website. For high season you pretty much need to book a year in advance. For low season, last minute bookings are not a problem.
