Ndutu Mobile Tented Camp

Lemala collection


 

Overview

Recently renovated with brand new tents and main areas and now offering 2 bedroomed tents ideal for families, groups or friends travelling together.  One authentic mobile tented camp, but in two locations, Lemala Ndutu & Lemala Mara, this camp move north and south with the seasons to ensure guests enjoy ringside seats to the spectacle of the magnificent wildebeest migration year-round. Both are setup in sublime locations offering a high quality safari experience with excellent guiding. Lemala Ndutu Tented Camp is in the Ndutu region of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area near the border of the Southern Serengeti. This area is classic savannah, characterized by flat grassy plains, and our camp is in one of the finest locations in Ndutu to see the migration between December and March. Tens of thousands of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle usually arrive  in  December  to graze  on  the newly-watered, highly-nutritious shortgrass  plains, and  then by February, the  main calving  season  takes  place.

Predators - especially the big cats - are highly concentrated in the Ndutu area in these months. With 9 tents, Lemala Ndutu is perched on the edge of a permanent marsh, and acts as the ultimate amphitheatre to capture the boundless drama that accompanies the migration   

Lemala Ndutu is a mobile tented camp offering an authentic bush experience, the tents are spacious and each is furnished with two queen-size beds and all the little luxuries that make them surprisingly comfortable. After an evening game drive, your tent attendant ensures your safari shower is filled with hot water to wash away the dust of the African savannah. Tasty meals are freshly prepared, and the camp organizes great picnic breakfasts and lunches for those who want to go on extended full-day game drives.  The communal areas have separate lounge and dining areas and are beautifully decorated with leather sofas, chandeliers, side cabinets, rugs, chests and a bar. In the evening, guests can gather around the campfire to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapes and sharing their safari stories.

Activities & features:

Balloon Safaris

Join us on an extraordinary adventure. Float in a hot air balloon over the famous Serengeti National Park with its enchanting scenery and amazing wildlife. This may be the most beautiful area in the world for a balloon flight. There are no power lines, fences and few roads. Our capacity is limited making this experience a special and exclusive one. Each and every balloon flight is different and therefore an adventure – even for us. We aim to provide the high point of your safari and an experience that you will remember always.

Sundowners

This is an experience that is a way of life in Africa. Its an exceptional treat and one not to be missed. Imagine your guests have just finished an inspiring game drive and your guests come across in the middle of the plains a private sundowner set up with drinks and snacks, chairs and cushions and waiters on hand to serve your guests their favourite tipple against the beautiful backdrop of the Africa as we know it, as the sun goes down

Lemala Cubs Kids Activities

Tanzania has great appeal for families. Seeing animals is very exciting for children, and nothing can prepare a parent for the delight of watching their child’s reaction when they catch sight of a lion, giraffe or elephant for the very first time. But small kids can get bored and restless on long drives or around camp if they are not entertained. Lemala Cubs offers our special guests under the age of 12 a wide range of wonderful opportunities to experience and enjoy the magic of the Africa bush. These activities are fun, educational and interesting, show future generations the need for conservation of Africa’s wildlife, and keep kids well entertained while mum and dad relax.

Some of our Lemala Cubs activities may include identifying animals and birds, learning how to throw (blunt) spears and use bows and arrows like the Maasai, being taught tracking and spoor identification techniques by our guides, walking with the Maasai to hear stories about their culture and way of life in the bush, and even joining the chefs in the kitchen to prepare meals or roasting marshmallows over the campfire before bed
