Visited Ndutu Safari Lodge for four nights. At this time this area has an abundance of wild life,due to the wildebeest being here for calving. This lodge has separate chalets with an open Varandah area. The room was very comfortable and clean,and the toilet was quite spacious.Hot water was available. The added attraction was the Genets who visited the lobby/Dining...

Located on the Ngorongoro side of Late Ndutu, this lodge has decent sized clean rooms. The breakfasts and dinners were fantastic - great food and awesome deserts. One of the highlights is the local family of Genets that would come inside at night and provide a continued wildlife experience even after the game drives. flocks of birds will visit a...

We stayed here for 3 nights. A lovely place built to be very much in tune with nature. Awesome rooms,and superb service. The rooms were individual chalets. Their plated 4 course dinners were a totally unexpected bonus in a remote lodge located within a game park. Packed breakfasts and lunches were excellent as they included little unusual touches like a...

This lodge seemed to be centrally located on the border of the Ngorongoro conservation area and the Serengeti national park. It was our "home away from home for three nights and we used it as a base for several game drives with our guide. The lodge had a very nice central area with plenty of lounge seating and limited Wifi...

This lodge was quite good. As we sat on our balcony we were visited by a herd of Zebra. At night we needed to be escorted to our lodging as animals could be quite close. The dinners served buffet style had nice choices and was tasty.. This lodge was quite popular with large tour groups which to us slightly marred...

This is a well managed comfortable British colonial style lodge with attractive and spacious single, duplex and quad ensuite bungalows with thatched roofed entry/sitting porches. This small and quaint lodge is well sited in a lush landscaped setting. We saw zebras grazing on the lawn. The dining/bar lobby is open air with a handsome open raftered ceiling where the gennets...

Ndutu Safari Lodge and the park itself are a "once in a lifetime" experience that you'll want to repeat. The lodge is set inside the park creating the opportunity to stay amongst the incredible wildlife and landscape. As other reviews have stated, it is remote and the border of the Ngorogoro Conservation Area and Serengeti, but well worth the drive....

This hotel is promoted as a lodge and I would have to rate is more as that. Rooms were okay but no a/c making it quite stuffy during the night. Service and food were good. If you are looking for a solid 3.5 star lodge, this is your place. It is in the middle.of wilderness, with beautiful views from room....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ndutu Safari Lodge, shaded by majestic acacia trees, is situated in the south-eastern part of the Serengeti. The Lodge has thirty four cottages, all built with local materials, with individual verandahs facing Lake Ndutu. Tucked away from the madding crowd, Ndutu offers peace and tranquility.
