We enjoyed our time at the lodge very much. The rooms were clean and well appointed, the staff friendly and the view amazing. We sat out at night by the campfire, we saw the stars, we saw game wondering by out in the field ahead. The food was good and the environment perfect for relaxation after a hot day. We... More

Very nice lodge, as to the big trek, we were there at the wrong moment. Therefore, it was a very quiet and relaxing place, nice sunsets and sunrises, nice central building - and we saw the honey badger, flamengos, many giraffes, some lions, bat eared foxes

This was our second stay at Ndutu Lodge, and won’t be our last. I really like this place. It isn’t fancy, it isn’t glamorous, it isn’t luxurious, but it has a heart and I feel at home here. The rooms are functional, but comfortable (and spotlessly clean), the people who work here are great, the food is some of the... More

Spent 4 nights at this safari lodge in the Serengeti. Pleasant stay. Rooms are clean and functional. Water from the showers is "slippery/soapy" I understand due to high concentration of minerals in the area. This is by no means a fancy lodge but it is functional and great for viewing game and bird life. Sunsets were wonderful.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on a quick 5 night tour of the Serengeti on a 3 week EA trip taking in some of Uganda and Rwanda, here and then onto Zanzibar. A nice mid-upper range spot in the middle of the Ndutu area with nice food, lovely staff, decent rooms and good personal service, unlike... More

We stayed at this lodge one night specifically to see the genets. We ended up enjoying our stay much more than expected. Although this is a historic lodge, it had more of a hotel feeling rather than safari feeling, lacking the warmth and welcome of a camp. These are basic accommodations but priced accordingly, so that is fine. The exterior... More

A warm welcome awaits everyone at Ndutu where the Safari Lodge is extremely comfortable and attractive overlooking a small plain often full of wildlife and stunning birds. The staff here are very efficient and very friendly, nothing too much trouble. The food is delicious, beautifully presented and plentiful. The picnics are imaginative and fun to eat when on game drives.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights after our Serengeti safari. Very nice quiet lodge with tons of birdlife and resident genets and dik diks on site! The beds were comfortable and dinners were tasty with great waitstaff. We really enjoyed the amazing sunset beside the campfire while feeding the birds and dik diks right out of our hands while sipping on... More

We are kosher, and needed the kitchen to accommodate us. They certainly did! We had brought with us our pots and pans, and some food. Their young chef, Joseph, cooked us a delicious soup, under our supervision, ditto potatoes, eggs, cut up fresh vegetables and fruits, and washed up too. We were very happy with their help. Yes, there is... More

The rooms were small but clean and adequate with very comfortable bed. Meals included were of a good standard and efficient service by friendly staff. Well appointed shop with quality locally made items. Well located for wildlife viewing. Genet family resident in the lodge was a surprise.
