When we first read the reviews of this lodge on TripAdvisor,we were all apprehensive to stay in this lodge.On our approach to this lodge,I thought we were heading to eternity,not a single board anywhere!!This lodge is hid in the middle of rocks and cannot be seen from one side. We drove 11 hours to reach this lodge and it was...

Prior to staying at Lobo, we read online reviews and I have to agree with most of what was said. First, the rooms are tight, but nicely furnished. The bathrooms are average and havee hot and cold running water, which was really nice. The rooms were clean overall, but you can tell they hang dry their bed linens because ours...

Were a bit worried about this Lodge, after reading some reviews. DO NOT LISTEN TO BAD COMMENTS!! This Lodge was amazing. Yes, the electricity does go off. What is the problem, you are in the Serengeti, with the amazing wildlife literally at your doorstep - enjoy it! The food, the staff and the view were all wonderful. We had two...

The rooms and the restaurant are very well appointed with lots of wood, comfortable chairs and large windows. The lodge is built around a kopje which is inhabited by delightful rock hyraxes. Your balcony may be visited by baboons and the outlook over the Serengeti plain allows you to watch buffalo, wildebeest, zebra as well as many of the birds...

We stayed at the lodge for 3 nights this month while visiting the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Tangeri. The lodge is located in the center of a lot of wildlife action. Around the lodge alone we saw all of the big 5 except the rhino. Within 1km of the lodge was excellent viewing of a large pride of lions, which we...

My two sons (both wildlife photographers and environmentalists) andI ended up staying at Lobo Lodge in 2012 after the Mara River flooded and we couldn't get to the tented camp that Duma Explorer (an excellent safari company) booked for us. As a result Duma booked us in Lobo Lodge which was a very pleasant surprise. Great location for game and...

The hotel was okay. Our room was clean. The food is just okay, and the box lunches for safari were not good. The view from the pool area is gorgeous . We had the misfortune of having to deal with the manager to pay for the Internet . He was extremely rude, pompous and obnoxious. When the Internet went down...

Lobo Wildlife Lodge in Serengeti National Park, is a place to be if you are in Northern Part of Serengeti, set up in a location surrounded by some good looking huge stones. This Lodge offers brilliant view of the Serengeti Plains from its Open Bar / Swimming Pool. Lodge outplays in all the matters, weather it is service, accommodation, comfort,...

Great location in the middle of nowhere and with fabulous views. Slightly strange smell about the place which, apparently, is caused by all the rock hyrax. Motel-like rooms. It's big and lacking in the human touch - everyone was perfectly nice but there is no soul. One notable exception is Chef Doughnut who strode around in his chef hat and...

We took a family party of seven (four rooms) to Lobo in January 2013. We had read many reviews which had given a mixed impression before our first visit. We go on safari for the wildlife and country, not for pampering luxury. But we were very pleasantly surprised by both the Lobo area and the Lodge. There is great 'resident...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lobo Wildlife Lodge is a dream of romanticism in its remote location, strategically hidden inside an enormous volcanic rocky outcrop. It is the biggest Lodge on the migration route. You can watch and witness the migration by lying in the pool. Artistically made of wood and glass elements around clusters of large boulders, harmoniously merging with its surroundings, the Lodge affords from its raised location stunning views of the most amazing natural spectacle to be seen on Earth.Lobo is ideally set in the migratory route of over two and a half million of wildebeest in their desperate struggle for survival. ... more   less
