GUIDE ON NDUTU KATI KATI TENTED CAMP IN SERENGETI
While the Great Wildebeest Migration in Serengeti National Park may be at the top of the list for your extraordinary safari with AfricanMecca, the resident wildlife is sure to please and delight as well! Elephants, gazelles, Cape buffalo, hippos, giraffes and many other foragers are common, as well as caracal, serval, mighty lions, swift cheetahs, leopards and other carnivores. Even avian and terrestrial scavengers like vultures and hyenas respectively make their appearance when a kill has been identified.
For an economical travel accommodation in southern Serengeti, we recommend Ndutu Kati Kati Tented Camp in the southern wilderness. With the seasonal wildebeest migration at your doorstep and other natural attractions nearby like Olduvai Gorge (midway stop from Ngorongoro Crater), soda lakes to surrounding hills, you are sure to have plenty to explore. Should you arrange your travel from December to March, you can view more than half a million wildebeest calves being born and take their first steps on the savannah plains.
Accommodation At Ndutu Kati Kati Tented CampWith only ten guest tents available, Ndutu Kati Kati Tented Camp gives you the experience of a traditional, yesteryear tented camp at an affordable cost. Tents are designed as doubles with either a king bed or two twin beds with the option of adding an extra bed for the third person. There is also an option for a family tent that can accommodate up to four guests. The bed options ensure a comfortable safari bush holiday for frugal solo travelers, couples, families and small groups who are visiting Tanzania.
Although most modest tented camps in Serengeti may seem to offer a non-frill, unpretentious experience in the bush, you will be quite satisfied with the attentive approach to guest comfort at Ndutu Kati Kati. Your tent includes an ensuite bathroom, complete with a traditional bucket shower, flush toilet and hand basin. The décor is inspired by the gentlest colors of Tanzania’s wilderness, such as ecru, taupe and asparagus green. In addition to a large bed, you also have a convenient nightstand, luggage rack, hanging rack for clothes and vanity with mirror than may work as a desk for writing postcards home.
Outside is a lovely shaded veranda with safari chairs and table, a great place to spend quiet mornings listening to wildlife, curling up with a book in the heat of the day and chatting with your travel partner. All of the tents are clean and well-kept. If you desire to hear wildlife at night and to watch traversing fauna, we recommend a guest tent on the outer edge of the camp. Tents near the dining tent are more convenient for meals for guests who have limited mobility, but the sound of the generator may disrupt the serenity of the African plains and disturb some guests, especially those who seek the solace of a tranquil safari vacation.
Safari At Ndutu Kati Kati Tented CampWith two activities per day to discover East Africa’s natural beauty, one in the morning and one in the afternoon or even on a full day, you are sure to have an intimate and memory-filled travel experience. Ndutu Kati Kati Tented Camp is a seasonal camp that is sited at the southern end of the park from December to March. While the timing coincides with the end of the short rains, the hot-dry season and the beginning of the long rains, the schedule gives you a front-row seat to one of Serengeti’s most heartwarming scenes (best time to visit) — the birthing of half a million wildebeest calves on the grassy plains – around 8000 born each day over a three-week spree in February and early March. Additionally, the camp is an excellent strategic base for seeing the Great Migration that traverses the southern Serengeti while the camp is in the area.
Set out in the morning with your guide who expertly navigates the terrain to the best vantage points for seeing massive herds of wildebeests and zebras. Mingled amongst these grand beasts are resident species, both herbivore and carnivore. Elephants, gazelles, impalas, hippos, giraffes and other foliage-eaters graze and slowly meander to the nearby Lake Ndutu and Lake Masek. From covert hiding places, lions, cheetahs, leopards and other meat eaters await their chance to pounce. The battle between predator and prey is no greater than when a baby wildebeest calf is struggling to stand for the first time.
The entrancing setting may tempt you to forego eating, but eventually your belly beckons. Your guide may lay out a prepared picnic or you may return to camp for lunch, a nap and light reading. In the afternoon, set out again into the wilderness or we may also arrange a cultural tour of a Maasai village. As the sun sinks into the horizon, your guide takes you to a brilliant location for sundowners around the campfire before returning to camp for dinner. After your meal you may wish to exchange stories with other guests around the fire or retire early.
Dining At Ndutu Kati Kati Tented CampAs a budget-friendly accommodation for your incredible tour, Ndutu Kati Kati Tented Camp in northern Tanzania offers guests adequate meals in the mess tent, and special meals may be served elsewhere. The camp offers a standard menu of common safari fare for breakfast, which may include cereal, eggs, toast, fresh local produce and more, all served with delicious freshly-brewed tea or coffee. Ndutu Kati Kati Tented Camp works closely with local communities to secure produce, meats and other types of food. The freshness of the ingredients is highlighted in your mid-day lunch as it awaits you after a beautiful morning trip into the wild countryside of Serengeti Park.
Lunch may be served at camp, or AfricanMecca can arrange a bush picnic as part of your full day game drive. Your appetite is satisfied with a simple selection of platters with items are carefully laid out, such as cheeses, vegetables, meats, pasta and other palatable choices. For dinner the camp chefs once again combine local, organic ingredients to create a filling meal that is served in the mess tent. The glow of lanterns and sounds of the bush blend perfectly to augment the enchantment of your surroundings. If you have special dietary needs or wish to enjoy a special dinner for two, please speak with your African Mecca Safaris representative so that arrangements can be made prior to your arrival.
