Lobo Wildlife Lodge
The facility is marvelous with its stunning views and ability to watch wildlife from the pool top deck area. The food is the problem. It is difficult to find acceptable meats to eat and in talking with other guests they were also disappointed. This is a government owned lodge with a private company managing the property. It is an Indian company and the furniture is heavily influenced to look Indian oriented with a little African thrown in for good measure. We did not feel this was a true African decorating scheme. It surprised us. The internet is charged at a rate of $5per hour and it did not work.....It is only avaiable in the reception/restaurant and bar areas, if it is working. The staff was friendly but not like being in a tented camp set-up. Due to the food issues we would not recommend this location. If food is not a factor then the location is beautiful. This was high season and not many people were staying here.They also will not allow your private guide to eat with you unless you pay extra for their food...Read more about the whole safari
Lobo Lodge great off season location
A fire and closure at Seronera Wildlife Lodge forced a change of location to Lobo Wildlife Lodge in the northern Serengeti.
We enjoyed the safari we had due to the variety resident game and the absence of other safari vheicles. Visiting here in the off-season was a pleasant change of pace. The scenery in this area is beautiful (ie. the kopi).
The food here was excellent and the staff accommodating.
Built into the kopi the accommodation has many stairs. This could be a problem for people with mobility issues.
Well located lodge, central Serengeti
A well located lodge in central Serengeti, comfortable rooms, hot showers and good views with wildlife right outside the bedroom windows. The hyrax and baboons can be noisy through the night though!
No electricity from midnight to 5.30am which will not be a problem for the vast majority of guests. Large dining room and bar, food buffet style and reasonable. Didn't try the pool, too busy animal spotting. Possible to reach the Mara river for river crossings.
One or two nights recommended.
Lobo Wildlife Lodge review
Lobo Wildlife Lodge is in a fantastic location with great views. The buildings are impressive, especially the bar area. Staff were friendly, even if service at dinner was a little confused at times.
The various animals living around the lodge provided entertainment, although we were glad the monkeys only ran over the roof on one night. The food wasn't very good though, lots of choice, but most of it either very bland or sickly sweet.
Lobo Wildlife Lodge review
A strange place - fabulous location but quite a big Lodge with very few guests - perhaps because not many people come this far up the Serengeti. Probably also because it is badly managed although the waiters, kitchen staff and evening piano/guitar player were lovely and excellent with our children (serious people may not appreciate the guitar player!).
Food very basic
Quite a lot of noisy construction work while we were there and our son was sick after swimming in the pool (on a closer look it was easy to see why....it was full of pond life)
Great area for wildlife though - serval, cheetah and leopard all seen near the Lodge
