Lemala Ndutu Tented Camp
Reviewed January 5, 2012

For me, staying at Lemala Ndutu was one of the highlights of our safari in Tanzania. The staff made us feel as if they had known us for years. They were amazingly attentive to all our needs. The food was good and sitting around the fire at night listening to the sounds of the bush - with lions roaring in the not too distant distance - was thrilling -even for me, and I have lived in Africa for almost 30 years. The tented rooms were massive and very comfortable and the bathrooms were remarkably well-appointed. Because everything runs on solar power, there is no loud generator noise, but the lighting in the rooms at night is also a little dim (a small price to pay considering the "cool factor" of the place. Our own personal server woke us in the morning with Tanzanian coffee - the best coffee we had anywhere - and then filled up our bush shower with hot water, all in time for us to get up and get an early start on wildlife viewing. I would definitely stay there again.

Lemala Ndutu camp is perfectly located at the heart of the wildlife. We had Zebras coming just in front of our tents before sunset. We saw elephants coming cross by and other guests even saw a lion. Food is good and rooms are comfortable. Only issue for me (as a girl) was that you need to ask to get hot water for shower and someone is heating the water while you are showering so you need to be quick!
Also, they told us we had the honeymoon suite which was a mere lie as all tents are exactly the same!

I have no words for Lemala. During our stay in February, it was situated in Ndutu conservation area.
The tents are amazing: super king size bed, big space, nice furniture and a bathroom that is close to what you would find in a hotel.
The staff is extremely friendly and professional and ensures a truly amazing experience.
It is certainly not cheap, but is worth every penny.

If you have the opportunity to travel to Tanzania be sure to include a stay at the Lemala Camps. From the arrival experience to the fond farewell, the staff, accommdations, food & beverage will be an experience of a lifetime. This is a true African experience. A gentle wake up call with beverage of your choice followed by hot breakfast and game drives with guides who will show the best game in the world. Take along a backed picinic lunch which you can enjoy under an tree, to return to the camp for sundowner around the fire. The attention to details will suprise you!
Don't miss this opportunity!!!
