This year the Ndutu Lake area was flooded. The normal dry season was anything but dry. Unseasonable rains turned what should have been dry dusty roads into rivers. For the most part the wet roads were passable by highly skilled safari drivers though a few got stuck.

The area is excellent for viewing wildlife,we have seen numerous lions, cheetah and hyena in the area and as the herd migrate south, wildebeest and zebra appear in large numbers.

With more foliage and greenery by the lake there seemed to be more animals, and a greater variety of them to see than at other safari locations. Also, we found bird watching here to be the best on our five stop safari. / Lake Ndutu provided us with our best opportunity to photograph animals us close. / Put this on your destination list!

We loved this conservation area. I would highly recommend visiting here. Take your time and try to get your driver to stop for half an hour so the birds don't get frightened.

We went during the dry season...there was no lake...no flamingos...was it bad...NOT AT ALL. Because it was dry, we were privileged to see a mother cheetah and 3 cubs right after they had eaten. We watched them totally by our selves and it was breathtaking!! Do I regret no lake...not at all...just means that we have to come back and see it then as well. Out of our safari, this was one of our favorite areas to be at.

We were in Ndutu during the height of the migration. The wildebeests were probably 70% done calving the third week of February. The herds were huge with animals across the land solid in a 360 degree circle. We saw 6 cheetah, just saw the end of a hunt, lions, and best of all 3 different honey badgers.

We were here around 27 March and although our guide had told us before the migration had already left upnorth, to middle serengeti, that was not true: they were still all here, and two days later there was still not one single wildebeest nor zebra in middle serengeti!!!!!

Ndutu is one of the best memories of our safari in Tanzania. In spring, thousands of wildebeest and zebras give birth to their calves around the lake. We consider it an incredible privilege to be able to see this with our own eyes. During the two days we were here, we were also able to observe many predators hunting, such as lions, cheetahs and hyenas. We even saw lions resting on the branch of a tree. A visit to the area is highly recommended. For accommodation, we recommend the Nyikani Migration Camp - Lake Ndutu.
