Described as having the ‘ultimate amphitheatre’ seats to the Great Migration, when 1.5 million wildebeest hurtle across the plains, Lemala Ndutu is a mobile safari camp that is set up between November and April only each year.
Consisting of nine well-equipped tents near the marsh within Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Conservation Area, it offers such fantastic views of the southern end of the migration route you might not even have to get into a 4x4 witness to galloping wildebeest and zebra as they are occasionally known to pass right through the camp!The calving season also attracts Africa’s predators and thrilling lion hunts are not uncommon. But there is no need to be alarmed by late-night roaring as an armed Maasai warrior will patrol your tent area.
Being as intimate and remote as it is, Lemala Ndutu is perfect for seasoned travellers who truly want to ‘unplug’ from 21st century life and immerse themselves in nature. Tents are very comfortable, with wooden flooring and rugs, as well as a flushable toilets and hot showers. To completely become one with the Migration, all-day game drives are arranged and chilled picnic lunches are enjoyed to the gentle beat of waves of passing game.
