We recently returned from a 4 day safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area of Tanzania. Our safari company, Hazina Afrika, recommended a mix of permanent lodges (Seronera Wildlife Lodge and Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge) and mobile camps (Ndutu Wildlands Camp). We ended up sending 2 nights at Ndutu Wildlands Camp while we explored the surrounding area with our Hazina Afrika guides.
Accommodation was simple - a temporary tent with beds and some furniture, and an attached enclosure with sink, shower and toilet (which relied on hand carried water for use). The food (including the inevitable daily "lunch box") was the best we had while on safari, and the camp manager, Philemon, was attentive and helpful throughout. Our camp was situated above a mainly dry lake bed, where in the morning we would find cheetah, jackals and wild dogs conducting their morning hunt. At night, a big fire blazed outside, and the staff served drinks and snacks while we waited for our dinner. I would have enjoyed spending more time at the camp, but our schedule was tight, and after 2 days we left for the Ngorongoro crater.
