Location Highlights of Lobo Camp

Lobo is one of the Serengeti's most stunning and secluded areas, offering an off-the-beaten-track safari experience away from the bustling tourist routes. This undiscovered part of the park is free from mass tourism, providing an intimate and peaceful encounter with nature. The region is characterized by its permanent water sources, which sustain a rich abundance of wildlife year-round.

The Lobo area, nestled in a pristine valley, is scattered with woodlands, open plains, rolling hills, and spectacular granite kopjes. These ancient rock formations, estimated to be 2-3 million years old, add to the remarkable beauty and solitude of the landscape.

Wildlife enthusiasts will find Lobo particularly rewarding for big cat sightings, with frequent opportunities to observe lions and leopards.

The best time to visit Lobo is between June and December, coinciding with the Great Wildebeest Migration as the herds move southward from the Serengeti Mara area back to the southeastern plains. Even outside of the migration season, Lobo offers plenty of wildlife encounters, hosting much of the park's elephant population and several large lion prides.

In Lobo, you can enjoy the true essence of safari in an unspoiled, tranquil setting. This hidden gem allows you to experience the Serengeti's incredible wildlife and landscapes in complete privacy, far from the crowded tourist areas.
