We spent 3 nights here in March 2014. My family (wife and 2 daughters- age 11 and 14) were in the tail end of a 2 week northern circuit safari. The location is very good with tons of wildlife around. The game drives are really good in the area.
The chalets are very nice. Good, reliable water and electricity. Few bugs and no malaria in the area.
The staff is very friendly and willing to help. The service is nice. The bar is nice.
The food area is great with the resident Genets hanging around at times. The quality of the food is not very good. It was average for the places we stayed, but overall the Tanzanian food was not good. This was my third african country and the most disappointing food. Ndutu did not offer any choices during lunch or dinner. It is a set, one choice menu.
This is worth the visit for the location and facilities. The food is average in quality. We would stay here again.
