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....

We stayed here before but were again impressed by the quality of the cabins, the very comfortable beds and great food; the best meals we had during our trip. Nice views and a paradise for bird watchers.

I really ended loving this place since we really enjoy to get back to the lodge to see Giraffes, dik diks, zebras, baboons, so many birds and here we even where able to see a Chameleon and the genets which is a nocturnal animal that would be imposible to appreciate if we wouldn't stay here. The staff is nice, but...

This place is incredibly hard to find, but worth it! We loved the Genet cats that live in the main building and are so much more attractive than your average cat! There was a special outdoor buffet when we visited and the food was superb. One of the few places we stayed with hot water!

We've been visiting Ndutu Safari Lodge for years and it never disappoints. Simple and no frills, the food is ''home cooked'' and excellent, the staff cheerful and efficient and everywhere maintained to the highest standard possible. Ndutu's semi-tame dikdik join you round the fire in the evening hoping for a bit of popcorn and elegant genet cats entertain in you...

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...
