Safari Lodging Help

Going to Tanzania in Nov. w/ husband, Brother, boyfriend & dad (we're late 20s, 30s, Dad is early 60s) First safari for everyone.
We're working with Access2Tanzania (reccomended by a friend who just returned from Africa)
Brief rundown of our itenerary
Arumeru River Lodge
Day 2-3 Tarangire River Camp (local visit to school or dinner with a family)
Day 4-5 Ngorongoro Serena Lodge- Visit the crater
Day 6-7 Lolindo Camp- walking safari/explore Serengeti I"d love to Balloon.
Day 8-Serengeti Serena Lodge
Our big concern is Loloindo Camp. It looks great but we've been told that it's way up in the northeast of the Serengeti and the game there late in the year may not be as interesting viv-a-vis other areas.
The alternative lodges provided by the outfitters are--
a. Sopa Lodges (Ngorongoro & Serengeti locations)
b.. Wildlife Lodges (Lobo Wildlife Lodge (Northern Serengeti), Seronera
Wildlife (Central Serengeti), Ngorongoro Wildlife) -
c.. Mbuze Mawe (Central Serengeti Luxury Tented Camp run by Serena)
d.. Ngorongoro Crater Lodge (CCAfrica)

After reading rocco's fabulous report, I wonder if we may be happier with the mobile tenting they did before Mbuze Mawe. The off road option sounds fantastic.

Any feedback would be appreciated!
