- Fantastic game viewing
- Located in Serengeti
- Spacious and luxurious tents
Lemala Ndutu and Lemala Mara Tented Camp is a highly unique camp with a simple philosophy: go where the game is. It is one camp that moves between two locations, with the seasons, to ensure guests are amongst the amazing scenes of migration throughout the year.
Between December and March, Lemala Ndutu Tented Camp is located on the edge of a permanent marsh in the Southern Serengeti that offers a spectacular view of migrating wildebeest. The camp moves to the Mara Serengeti from July to October, where it overlooks wildebeest playing in the Mara River beneath a collection of large Euclea trees. It is situated in the best game viewing area of the Northern Serengeti. With no crowds, vast landscapes, and great game viewing, the area already has exceptionally high numbers of resident wildlife, which is further diversified and transformed when the migration arrives.
Guest accommodation consists of 12 en-suite tents with twin or double beds. Triple tents are also available. The tents are spacious and combine an authentic bush experience with modern luxury.
The main area is a large mess tent. It features a separate lounge, dining, and centralised bar area. It is decorated with leather sofas, chandeliers, and authentic rugs. Excellent guides are always available to guests and are very knowledgeable. The camp organises brilliant picnic and lunches for full-day game drives. In the evening, after a game drive, guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapés around a campfire.
Children under the age of 6 are not recommended, but there is an opportunity to gain prior approval. Child rates apply to children aged between 6-16 years.
The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Namibia trip was fantastic!
Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).
As for specifics:
This place was the best!
Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.
The only (slight) disappointment.
Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.
Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.
Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
A nice stopping point on the drive.
An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
The staff was on par with Okonjima.
2 days were perfect.
Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
They represent Tourdust well!
Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
