We stayed there for two nights. Located in a fantastic place. It is really interesting how they preserve the nature when building the lodge. They rooms are bit small, but they are comfortable and clean.

Like others have said, the location is fantastic. It is built into the rocks and the hotel has an open concept with the lodge completely open to the surrounding wildlife. Baboons were free to run around the hallways of the lodge and the rooftops, which did get a bit noisy at night. Rooms were clean but basic and food was... More

If you are planning a safari in the Serengeti you must stay here. It is located well into the Serengeti national park with wildlife all around us, including a leopard, which we all left the dining room in the middle of our meals to go to see. The hotel is built high up on a rocky outcrop, with trees and... More

Big hotel and expensive but the only option by our tour operator if we wanted to stay in the park. This hotel is in the north part of serengeti and is a bad option if it is in the second part of februari. The animals has already started moving down to serena river. So we almost "wasted" two days here.... More

We checked into this lodge late on the second day of our safari. It had been a long, hot, dusty day on the road with amazing sightings of many animals. It's difficult to describe how different the geography is in the northern Serengeti but imagine our delight on arriving at this lodge built into the rocky landscape. Our room was... More

I enjoyed this lodge in the Serengeti - set into the rocky hillside is provided fantastic views from the swimming pool area out across the plains - imagine sitting and having a cold beer/wine looking out at the view. From the reception area there is a short climb up to the dining room (though they do have a ramp for... More

I stayed at this hotel in August 2014. Location wise its the best. on the wilde beast migration route. The rooms have a great view of the wide expanse of Serengeti. It being on a hilltop is an advantage. Rooms are neat and comfortable. Food is average. Overall a very good place to stay.

I was put up here as part of a package deal, so I'm not really sure how much it costs to stay here. Thus, I can't comment on whether it "offers value". But I did enjoy my time here. The hotel and rooms were very nice with all the amenities and services you'd expect at a luxury hotel. There are... More

Lobo Lodge captures the spirit of the north Serengeti by being built into and on top of a kopje. The wildlife viewing from the poolside bar is fabulous. Sip wine or a Kilimanjaro beer while watching the sunset. What I loved - I loved the architecture and the history of Lobo Lodge. The main dining room and indoor bar utilizes... More
