| Facing the savanna
Ndutu Safari Lodge has some 30 rooms in stone bungalows. Most rooms are doubles or twins,
but there are also a few family rooms sleeping four. All rooms have private bathroom
and face the savanna and Lake Ndutu. They don't offer much safari style, but feel very
fresh and clean.
The lodge has a main building housing a restaurant, a bar and a souvenir shop. All rooms
have wall outlets (220240 V) for charging cameras etc.
Close to the bush
The setting is very close to the bush; the savanna starts a stone's throw from the buildings,
and the lodge isn't fenced. Animals may enter the lodge area, but there are watchmen
to keep you safe, and to escort you when walking to and from your room at night.
Genets, a kind of cat-sized carnivore
feeding mainly on insects and other tiny animals, are often seen around the lodge after
dark. They appear in the restaurants most nights for dinner.
Originally a tented amp
Ndutu Safari Logde was originally a tented
camp, built on the same site some 40 years ago. It has remained its bush atmosphere
also after the tents were replaced by bungalows.
More about Lake Ndutu
Lake Ndutu is situated in areas where the large migrating herds of wildebeest and zebras
are often be seen from December to March. (February is normally the wildebeest calving
season.) The surrounding plains are also good areas for gazelles, which may be seen
in vast numbers. The savanna woodland around the lakes is a good habitat for giraffes,
impalas, dikdiks and other herbivores.
