This lodge is located in the heart of the Serengeti wiled resort. After excellent trip we were looking for high level lodge which trend to be quite average, small rooms, not enough hot water, average buffet. The staff deed efforts to give good service but the facilities were not sufficient for us. Later on we found out that there are... More

Lobo Lodge is a former government property and this is why it has such an excellent location. It is built on a hill top, and its elevation offers great vistas, especially in the bar/pool area. We didn't see a lot of game close up from the lodge as the watering holes that can be seen from the pool are quite... More

The lodge is lovely, the lobby and dining areas are done with a wonderful hardwood and a bit of 1970's Indian feeling(!?) The layout means that if you were where our rooms were, you had a bit of a walk via stairs and around places to get to the room. Our room was a top floor room - nothing quite... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your kind feed back. We are sorry about the baboons keeping you awake during the night. Usually Baboons go to sleep after sunset. However if they sense a predator, like a leopard or an African python close by, then they are alert and they keep shifting from one location to another. Unfortunately it seems like... More

We arrived late to the hotel, but could see lights leading up a hilltop as we drove closer in the middle of the Serengeti. When we woke up the next morning we could actually see what an amazing location we were in! Luckily, on the second morning we could see the sunrise over the distant hilltop around 6:30am. DO NOT...

We stayed for 2 nights in the park with the safari tour. When we arrived it was already passed 7pm. Dinner was between 7pm to 9pm so once we checked in we had to head straight to the restaurant. Electricity and hot water is available for a certain time only as they use generators for electricity. We asked the reception... More

The lodge is built right into the natural landscape. The dining room and lounge on their separate levels are inspiring. The pool is great and the view is amazing. The staff are very professional and the food is excellent. The floors are a little squeaky in the some of the rooms but the management is working on rectifying this. The... More

Instead of what the Bradt tells you, when staying at the Lobo campsite it's not possible to get any food or beverages at Lobo Wildlife lodge. This is important to know, since alternatives are a day drive away. And not the most sympathetic attitude...

Very remote property with a stunning view of the Serengeti. The rooms are on the small side and a little dated but not a deal breaker. Breakfast and dinners are not fine dining but very good. Safari box lunch is adequate. Bring your own granola bars if you want to supplement it. Service was good and staff was friendly. You... More

The location and the building itself are OK but that's all. The service is bad and you get the feeling you're bothering the stuff. The food was bad. I stayed in many lodges in East Africa recently and this was the only one with unpleasant experience
