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!

Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the resort and the facilities. Beautifully kept lodge with amazing and friendly staff whom nothing is ever a problem. A very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Food was awesome!

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...

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...

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.

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...
