Perched on the edge of a permanent marsh, Lemala Ndutu Tented Camp is the ultimate amphitheater for the wildebeest migration between December and March.
The 12 tents are sited to capture the boundless drama that accompanies the migration. The migration arrives in the highly nutritious short grass plains of the Southern Serengeti in December and usually begins calving in February. The camp is situated inside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, near the border of Southern Serengeti, in what is perhaps the finest location in the whole of Ndutu. We have sited the camp to the west of the marsh to ensure the prevailing cooling breeze carries any dust away from the camp.
The mobile tents are spacious and each is fitted with 2 double beds and combining an the authentic bush experience with all the little luxuries that make it so surprisingly comfortable. After an evening game drive, your tent attendant ensures your safari showers are filled with hot water to wash away the dust of the African savannah.
This mobile camp moves with the migration. From July to November it relocates to the Mara River in the northern Serengeti.
It is no wonder that the spectacular Serengeti is the iconic wilderness safari destination. This vast East African conservation area – comprising 15 000km² of savannah – is one of the last areas on Earth where you can get a front-row seat to the Great Migration.
Few lifetime experiences can beat that of watching over a million wildebeest plus hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebra – followed by their predators – embark on a 1 000km-long circular trek through unfenced Kenya and Tanzania in search of seasonal pasture and water. This natural spectacle is both thrilling and profoundly moving. But with its high biological diversity, the Serengeti also offers rewarding year-round adventure and intimate wildlife experiences, with exceptional, high-density game viewing as well as significant large predator-prey interactions.
