We drove southwest in the rain (slipping and sliding along the way) from the Seronera area of the Serengeti National Park, outside the park boundaries to the Ndutu conservation area. We found ourselves isolated but very comfortable at the Ndutu Safari Lodge, often seeing and hearing all sorts of animals right next to the lodge.
The Ndutu area encompasses many beautiful marshes, lakes and the acacia woodland. We arose very early in the morning to get a glimpse of the beautiful sunrise and the elephants or giraffes silhouetted against the horizon. Ndutu is especially famous for its cat population, especially the cheetahs, lions and leopards, but also noted for smaller varieties such as the African wild cat, servals and caracal. As you can see with these photos, the many tourists photograph and admire several cheetah families in the conservation area.
