We were traveling in a group of seven from Ngorongoro crater to Lobo Lodge as our overnight destination. Our safari vehicle broke down just at the junction to Olduvai Gorge. No replacement. we had to hire another company car to get us as far as Serengeti Wildlife Lodge. Then another car to get us to Lobo Lodge where we were booked (and paid in full in advance). We arrived to the lodge very late, it was dark already. It felt so good to be received nicely and shown to our rooms. To be able to wash and change and go to the dining area with live music played on piano. The food was excellent and plenty. It was so great to be there after a terrible day in scorching heat.
In the morning before the break of dawn, I went with my camera to shoot some night photos. I went up to the swimming pool and observation deck overlooking the plain. The sunrise was spectacular and breathtaking! I was mesmerized by the beauty of it. Elephants, zebras and gnus wandering below in the plain and the majestic sun coming up quickly and bathing everything in red, pink and gold. The pictures of the sunrise can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150608993626912.410645.649361911&type=1&l=cb35c53211
When everyone woke up refreshed and rested, we had a king size breakfast and left for Musoma around 10am, leaving behind us a safe haven, a magnificent place which hopefully will get ugrade and refurbishment as the location of it deserves so much.
