The camp comprises of just ten spacious tents (including a 4-bed family tent), all with solar lighting and en suite facilities (flushing toilet and shower). Comfortable beds with quality linen ensure a good night’s rest.
Our professional staff will be on hand to look after your every need, and our safari chef will prepare wholesome and varied meals during your stay at the camp. Meals are served in a large dining tent or alfresco. The communal lounge and bar area is a great place to relax. The camp also has WiFi.

Plenty of predators can be found year round in this area: Lion, Cheetah, Leopard, Serval, African Wildcat, Caracal as well as Hyena and many other smaller species – some easier to spot than others! The diverse eco-systems, from woodlands, to plains, to soda lakes, within the Ndutu area make it a unique place for bird watching.
The Ndutu area is the best place to be to witness the annual wildebeest calving spectacle. Once the rains start (usually late November), the huge herds make their way down from the Mara River to graze the short grass plains of the Serengeti. For up to five months of the year the wildebeest remain in and around this area, making it an excellent base from which to explore.
During your stay at Ndutu, we offer game drives in the surrounding areas as well as a visit to Olduvai Gorge, and even access the Ngorongoro Crater. Game walks may be undertaken in the area (but must be pre-booked) with local Conservation Rangers, Masaai, and our qualified guides. We can also take you to various villages for community interaction and to find out more about the local Maasai culture. You may like to support local community projects (such as building of schools, health centres, planting trees, etc).
We have designed some fantastic multiple day walking safaris in the Ngorongoro Conservation area, partially backed up by vehicle and/or donkeys. These safaris take you from the plains of the Ndutu region, up to the highlands of Ngorongoro and Empakaai. For those very adventurous souls we can organise a hike up Ol Donyo Lengai (only for seasoned hikers), and enjoy nearby Lake Natron.
When to Go
This camp is in Ndutu area seasonally, ie between December and March annually, and can be booked in conjunction with a stay in Serengeti Wilderness Camp (central) or a safari to nearby Ngorongoro / Tarangire or Lake Manyara.
