|About these ratings|
If you're spending time in Northern Serengeti, a trip to the Lobo should be at the top of your list. It was this sprawling area that American conservationist Stewart White described as a "paradise" back in 1913. Along with the Seronera Valley, Lobo is one of the only places in the park where you have a good chance of spotting all three big cats: lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Giraffes, elephants, and ostriches are constant features of the Lobo Valley, and you're also guaranteed a glimpse of the vast Migration between July and October.
The best time for wildlife viewing in Lobo is from June to November, when the dry season sweeps across the savannah. The valley occupies the southeastern edge of Northern Serengeti and is easily accessible via the Lobo airstrip.
