Exclusive Camps of Erstwhile Royalty

Ndutu

The Royal Migration Camp, Ndutu is your ideal exclusive camp in the bush. It is designed to take you back to the days when the wife, even on safari, wanted her own space. It is for this reason that our camps have two types of tents.

The first is a set of four tents, with two beds, seating and bath areas under one canvas. This is more in sync with the traditions of luxury camping in today’s Africa. Tents are large and designed to offer the highest of comforts.

The other comprises of two sets of tents, four tents in each set. The idea is to make you feel the bush; allow it to permeate into your senses. Your bedroom is connected to a large washroom at the back. The bathroom has a shower, flushing lavatory, basin and ample luggage space. The sleeping tent has two single beds that can be joined to act as a double, a writing desk and dresser. Outside your bed tent, on one side is a tent with a standalone bathtub with running hot and cold water and on the other, your own exclusive lounge to relax and take in the many sights and sounds of Africa.

Come to the Southern Serengeti to witness a gathering so large, it turns the earth black, the lake waters red and the sky brown with dust. The Wildebeest migration by far is the best natural event the world has to offer. At Ndutu, we believe you will, depending on the dates you visit, hopefully see the migration in all its glory. The short grass plains extend into the very horizon, at times filled with the migrants. Around camp itself, last season we had a pride of lions, leopard and cheetah.

Drive past the marsh into the plains and you will descend into Hidden Valley or drive around Lake Ndutu and Lake Masek looking for elephants, buffalo, leopards and tree climbing lions. Many guests come to Ndutu to see the migration but go back stunned by the sheer beauty of giraffe drifting across the surreal landscape, the magnificence of the marshes, lakes, endless plains and gorges carved out by millions of year old rivers on the banks of which our ancestors, over thirty thousand years ago eked out a living.
