Lobo Wildlife Lodge is a dream of romanticism in its remote location, strategically built into an enormous volcanic rocky outcrop. It is the largest lodge on the migration route where it's elevated position means that the migration can be viewed from the comfort of a sun lounger. You can watch and witness the migration even from the pool. Artistically made of stone and local timber around clusters of large boulders, harmoniously merging with its surroundings, the Lodge affords from its raised location stunning views of the most amazing natural spectacle to be seen on Earth.
Lobo is ideally set on the migratory route of over one million wildebeest in their desperate struggle for survival. It is the first lodge on the way from Kenya to Tanzania, only 28 km from the Maasai Mara. Lobo Wildlife Lodge invites you to an unforgettable safari experience from its privileged location, unrivalled by any other both for game viewing and scenery.
A waterhole below the Lodge attracts a variety of wildlife during the day and is lit each evening, revealing an interesting array of nocturnal animals, providing a close encounter with the very authentic wildlife. All the Lodge’s 75 elegant guestrooms afford superb views of this unbelievable natural phenomenon, and the sumptuous swimming pool is situated on the very edge of the rock, offering uninterrupted views of the horizon.
