Stayed at Lobo Wildlife Lodge for two nights on a recent safari (July 2012) and found it was not at all what they advertise on the website. Apparently it is under new ownership and the service and accommodations have declined in recent years. The rooms were very small and not well maintained-the mirror was so spotted, it was hard to see in it. The information on their website is incorrect. They do not have a library or an Internet cafe or a gift shop or an adapter or even a hair dryer to use! There was no hot water until 7pm which made it difficult to clean up and get to dinner early when you had been out all day and needed to get up early again in the morning. The food and service did not compare to the other locations. They also did not treat the guides very well, one night refusing to provide them with showers and another making them wait until 9 pm. Our guide drove many long days over dusty, bumpy roads to take us everywhere and I wish he had been treated with more respect. I would recommend spending 2-3 nights at the Serengeti Sopa Lodge (which was excellent!) and doing day trips to the Northern Serengeti if that is on your itinerary.
