Witness earth’s greatest spectacle from the comfort of your own tent
Olakira is a classic mobile tented camp that moves between two locations - Ndutu in the South (December - March) and Mara in the North (June - November) of the Serengeti. It’s a simple and welcoming camp with comfortable sofas and puffy pillow furniture. Set on sprawling mixed vegetation plains in the North and in the cooling shade of a small forest overlooking a seasonal stream in the South, the camp is always in touch with the migration’s mystical movements.
At the lodge
Olakira’s main area consists of two tents, a dining tent and a lounge tent, adjacent to one another. Comfortable furniture and a small library create a cosy, homely atmosphere. The dining tent is geared for banquet style eating with mesmerising views of the bush and beyond. The campfire is the ultimate spot to recount the day’s highlights, putting your feet up while sipping an ice cold beverage.
Olakira Camp has nine en-suite tents, including one family tent, set out in a linear fashion, leading towards the communal areas. Elegantly laid out, each tent is spacious and well appointed with a writing desk, hanging cupboard and external private veranda from which to survey the mesmerising surroundings. The tents are very well spaced, giving guests the sense that they are alone and at one with this rugged wilderness.
Game drives, game drives and more game drives! When the game viewing is this plentiful, and the guides this knowledgeable, game drives are more than enough to quench your sense of wonder. In line with normal national park regulations, there are no night drives or guided walks. All the more opportunity to make the most of the day and use the nights to recharge beside the fire in preparation for the next day's adventures.
