    About Olakira Camp

    Fine linens, fine dining and a touch of nomadic romance are the hallmarks of this superb safari camp, which all but disappears into the surrounding African bush. Combined with unbeatable hospitality and highly knowledgeable guides, Olakira treats you to an unusually personal and authentic East African wilderness experience.

    The mess and dining tents echo the style and ambience of the rooms, with panoramic views of the sprawling Serengeti plains. Spend the afternoon relaxing in an armchair in the mess area or get comfortable under the shade of the surrounding trees and simply watch the game pass by. When darkness falls, dinner is served either under canvas or beneath a glittering canopy of stars in a small clearing close by, accompanied by the night sounds of the bush.

    Meals and Dining

    The food at Olakira is wholesome and elegantly presented. Organic produce from local farms gives every meal here fresh appeal. Depending on how hungry you are, you can choose from a lighter Continental breakfast or go for a cooked full English breakfast. At lunchtime make your choice from an appetising buffet with a selection of salads and freshly baked breads to accompany your hot main dish. Don’t fill up with too many of the tasty snacks that are served with your sundowners: dinner is a full three courses served at the table.
    Camp Location

    As the seasons change, the wildebeest follow the rains in search of fresh grazing and water. As a result, twice a year we break camp and relocate to a new prime spot that gives unparalleled access to superb viewing.
    Olakira North (June to November)

    From June to November, Olakira enjoys one of the most pristine corners of the Serengeti in the tranquil Bolongoja region of the northern plains. The camp is a mere 300 metres from a crossing point at the Mara River, where herds of wildebeest plunge into the water amid the jaws of the resident Nile crocodile and hippo on their great journey north to Kenya. Olakira stands proudly in one of the best migration viewing areas in the north, and game viewing is nothing short of spectacular.
    Olakira South (December to March)

    From December until March, a small shady forest east of the Ndutu area in the south is home. A small stream in front of camp frames the vista of iconic grasslands, dotted with hundreds of thousands wildebeest as they graze on the luscious green grass. In February, the plains throng with even more animals as wildebeest mothers give birth simultaneously, and hundreds of tiny wildebeest skitter and slide around the grasslands. Officially in the NCA (Ngorongoro Conservation Area), game drives cover both the NCA itself and the southern Serengeti, allowing for frequent sightings of big cats, elephant, buffalo and the more elusive African wild dog.
