This is at the same time typical, exotic but with the comfort you need in order to get a good sleep and rest in the middle of the Savannah ! It is so nice to be right in the middle of the wild life, just outside your big private tant watching giraffes at sunset as well as many exotic birds ! The tant is huge. The sleeping area is large with a large bed and a sofa, the bathroom area is nothing luxurious but has a shower and a proper WC. You just need to be careful with the shower as you only get 15 litres of water per person so 30 for the two of us ! That was enough for a proper shower but don't expect to get enough water for a shampoo ! We ordered a morning shower as well (this needs to be requested the night before as the staff delivers the water you ordered at the time you ordered it !) The diner was really good and so was the breakfast which is amazing considering the fact that you are in the middle of nowhere ! Great organization. One night there was perfect for us. It has a real taste of adventure ! Not sure if I would have enjoyed staying there several nights though.

Simple but nice, ask for a tent away from the main tent so you can hear the animals over the staff preparing food in the morning. These tents are very simple but nice! There are lights inside, a comfortable bed and another attached tent for the bathroom and shower. The water is rationed by the number of people staying in the tent. This was not a big deal if you turn off the water in between soaping and shampooing. The water was warm enough as well! The food is okay. We asked for vegetarian which was accommodated for every meal. The alcohol selection is quite limited so bring your own. Also, know that they do not have ice for mixed cocktails. You can not leave your tent without an escort at night. This camp does not offer internet so be prepared. Have lunch at Lake Masek Lodge which is nearby for cool air, great food, views, internet, and drinks! We LOVED our daily safari and saw tons of cheetahs, lions, elephants, and part of the great migration. Please remember that what we saw was based on the climate, time of year and luck.

Firstly, lions were literally outside our tent! Well that just made my Safari! You are literally in amongst the thick of it. The campsite is in the actual park, so not for the faint hearted. Although we were assured it was perfectly safe. We needed to be escorted to and from the dining tent, well you could feel the vibrations as the lions growled only a few feet away. Pros. The sunset. Jaw dropping. Wildlife so close you can touch Lions Tents are very comfortable, spacious, with hot water on request. Safe Camp Fire WiFi - (although I would stay disconnected, it adds to the romance) Pitch Black, you can't even see your own hand in front of your face. Stars. Littered the night sky. Cons. Well I just loved everything about the place. Dinner was... meh. But you are in the bush so don't go expecting the Ritz.

Lovely lovely camp. Awesome staff, food and accomodations. Super luxurious and makes you feel spoiled. I woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of millions of animals eating grass right outside our tent. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen!

This is your classic bush camp, but it's no-frills. The food is acceptable but I wouldn't call it 'good'. We didn't have any big problems, just small annoyances. Like the hot water for the shower that smelled strongly of gasoline, or the fact that the staff didn't put down the netting on the dining tent to keep out the many many insects of a Ndutu evening. Overall, I think you can do better than this at Ndutu for the same money.

The tents were brand new, very very spacious, flushing toilet, separate shower...all within your tent. Ample lighting and your specific tent attended was very attentive...lovely warm showers after a full day of sight seeing and being covered in dust. Your basically right in the migration route, next to the Ndutu Lake marsh area. We spent Christmas there and the food was wonderful. The staff really went out of their way to make you feel comfortable and secure. At that time of year you only have to travel a very short distance to get amongst the migration herds.....thousands of them. Also from time to time, you may be fortunate enough like ourselves, to see Lions and Cheetahs, all within a half mile to a mile and a half of the camp.

Great location in the Ndutu region. We stayed there as a family in December of last year and we had a great time. We took some excellent photos, saw quite a few animals in the morning and very close to the marsh. We came in late to the camp on the arrival night and the staff were very helpful, attentive and took care of us well. Overall it was a great experience

Great location in Ndutu on the Ndutu Lake marsh. Staff were very eager to help and meet your needs. But some basic flaws - didn't provide torch lights at night, tent zippers were not all working, tent had some holes with water leaking during the rain. Not luxury by any means. Just need to go in with the right expectations.

Overall the Ndutu Wildlands Camp is wonderful and a terrific place to spend one or two nights. The staff while friendly and efficient were at times indifferent. The food is very good as far as safari food is concerned. There are some limitations as to selection of drinks (understandable in that they have to be trucked in from a distance). I would recommend this as a safari stop. The game viewing during the Great Migration is spectacular in this area.
