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.

  • Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

  • Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
    We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
    Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol
