Olakira Camp is a small, seasonal mobile tented camp that moves through the Serengeti, following the Great Migration, one of the world's natural wonders. The camp is situated in the southern region from December 01-March 31. During June 01-November 15, it moves to the northern Serengeti and will be ideally located on the Mara River on one of the traditional migration crossing sites. This is an exclusive camping site and no other camps are located in the region. The camp consists of nine luxury mobile tents with comfortable beds and bathroom facilities, an intimate mess tent serving top food and drinks, a lounge tent and fire place for drinks and relaxation and an opportunity to meet other guests and talk about the day's game viewing.
"Olakira/Serengeti- We loved the staff at Olakira. They were so friendly and the food was spectacular. Chocolate truffles to die for!! They barbequed in the pouring rain and it was wonderful. The best appetizers too. We met the most interesting people at Olakira, and we really enjoyed the communal aspect to the camp. Daniel the bartender was most hospitable, and they did not skimp on the wine! If we had stayed in lodges like Exploreans the whole time, we would have missed this part of the trip. Our guide, Reuben, was wonderful. He wanted so badly for us to see the Wildebeest crossing and to find a rhino (alas, that was the only thing we did not see). We were incredibly fortunate to see 2 huge crossings and it was truly a sight. "
"Baraka (Olakira Camp): Baraka had big shoes to fill after our experience with Wilfred, but he filled them easily. We learned that he has trained most of the guides at Olakira and we benefited from his experience, often being the first on the scene to a magical moment on the Serengeti. He was professional, courteous, punctual, knowledgeable, friendly. He, too, anticipated our needs and wants, accommodating us at every turn. He, too, enriched our experience because of his extensive experience and knowledge of the Serengeti. Could not have asked for a better driver or guide."
