We arrived after dark due to a car problem but were greeted by the warmest of welcomes from the friendly staff. We had a chilled drink, a hot shower and then the most delicious supper; a perfect ending to a very busy day. All the meals were delicious but a particular highlight was the next evening when the tables were laid for supper by the camp fire! Wonderfully romantic!

** Shirley from Hong Kong **

We stayed there for 2 separate nites in mid Aug, before going into Serengeti and after leaving there.

Hotel is situated at Ndutu which is 15 mins way from the Serengeti gate, a very good location, and we were welcomed by 2 giraffes right at the lodge entrance. Great thing is animals are walking around freely themselves, lots of different kinds of birds come for water in the morning, can hear them singing everywhere, beautiful sunrise and sunset

What I like the lodge most is the staff there are very nice, friendly and multi-international. We were invited to James' 14th birthday dinner which was really touch and special.

Foodwise was yummy, great western dinner with dessert. I had beef as main course, very soft and tendor, great chef Marita

Speaking of Ndutu, that's the place you can't miss! You can get very close to animals since no designated roads you have to follow, free to drive anywhere, and can see their faces in own eyes without using a binocular. We saw cheetahs, lions, impala, reedbuck, gazelles, giraffes, elephants, zebra, dik-dik, elands, warthogs, lots of other ones that couldn't name them all, not very many wildebeest though since they were in Northern Serengeti crossing Mara River, but will be back there between Jan and April with babies.

In short, this is the lodge I will definitely come back

An amazing place in an amazing environment. If you are keen to be part of wildlife, this is your lodge. Behind the house antilopes wander every evening. The flora is equally special around the place.
This is a must-visit!

The staff are really friendly and helpful. The food is fine (we found most of the food average in Tanzania but we have different tastes and perhaps prefer the meat more tender plus we didn't go for the food!). The location is excellent, we watched a lion walk through the camp one morning which was spectacular. We also met the resident dig dig and genets! Rooms were clean and beds were comfy. Very relaxed feel to the lodge. Electricity and wifi was only available for a couple of hours in evening and in morning however we didn't find this to be a problem.

Thanks so much for your kind review of our lodge. Being able to sit in the lounge, or at the campfire and see the wildlife up close certainly makes for a memorable experience. Guests love the comfy beds and pillows! I hope one day we will see you back at Ndutu Lodge.
Best wishes
