Perched on the edge of a permanent marsh, Lemala Ndutu is the ultimate amphitheater for the wildebeest migration between December and March. 9 suite tents of a very high specification are relocated from the Northern Serengeti to this stunning Ndutu site to capture the boundless drama that accompanies the migration. The migrating herds of over 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra begin to arrive in December and begin calving in February.
The camp is situated inside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, near the border of Southern Serengeti, in what is perhaps the finest location in the whole of Ndutu because of its shady umbrella acacia trees and grass cover which reduces dust considerably and also attracts grazers. The camp offers fantastic views of the marsh whose permanent fresh waters attract an abundance of game including predators. The camp enjoys regular visits from resident wildlife ranging from lions, leopards,cheetahs and hyenas to elephant and giraffe. Lion hunts close to the camp are not uncommon.
A major advantage of the area is the ability to do off-road game viewing. Lemala’s open 4×4 vehicles are specially designed with charging units and a large refrigerator so that guests are able to enjoy full day game drives. The kitchen is happy to organise delicious breakfast and lunch picnics for the day. The camp also offers optional walks along the marsh with an armed ranger for closer encounters with the wildlife.
All the tents are spacious and comfortable with large single or king-size beds with warm duvets, wooden flooring with rugs, 24-hr solar lighting, en-suite bathrooms with a dressing area, flush toilet and a great safari shower. The mess tent offers separate living and dining areas and is beautifully decorated with leather sofas, chandeliers, side cabinets, rugs, chests and even a bar! In the evening, guests gather around the campfire to watch sunset and sip cocktails before retiring for dinner under the chandeliers. House alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are included during meal times.
Superb tents in intimate surroundings, personal hosting, al-fresco meals, fireside discussions, sundowners, spectacular views, breath-taking sunsets, prime migration viewing and optional walks all contribute to one of the finest under-canvas safari experiences in Tanzania. For a complete Serengeti experience, combine your stay at Ndutu with at least 2 nights at Lemala Ewanjan (3/4-hr drive or 15-min flight) or Lemala Kuria Hills (7/8hr drive or 30-min flight).
