Olakira Camp is a relaxed mobile tented camp of 6 guest tents and 2 common area tents, located on the Mara River in one of the most vied after areas of the extraordinary Serengeti National Park. 'Olakira' means 'star' in Maasai, and this one definitely shines. The spaciousness and comfort of the camp is added to when one dines in the vast expanse of these plains, with their meals lit up by the sparkly sky above. The days are eventful with game drives and activities, while others look forward to the magic of the night, where storytelling and fire light mix as travellers share tales of their adventures.
Olakira Mara Camp is located in the extreme north of the Serengeti in northern Tanzania, which July thru October is quite simply the best place to be for migration viewing in the Serengeti. The camp itself is the usual format of large tented mess, campfire and several large guest tents with private bathrooms. The mobile nature of the camp allows it to move to the densest concentrations of wildlife, it manages to surprise with its spaciousness and comfort. A stay in Olakira Camp is not about 5 star luxury though. It's about something more than that. Being in the middle of this wonderful spectacle, with wild animals roaming around camp at night, is a dream come true to even the most experienced of travelers.
The guest tents are spacious and comfortable with large king-size or twin beds and convenient bathrooms. Each tent has its own private verandah with an amazing view overlooking the Serengeti. Bathrooms are extremely comfortable for a mobile camp, with shower, wash basin and an environmentally friendly toilet. Combine large rooms with a great lounge area and wonderful food served under the Serengeti stars ensure total well-being.
See Above Description.
Central to the camp are two common tents that are open to the surrounding nature. When the camp is occupied by multiple small groups, one tent will serve as a dining tent and the other one as a lounge, where drinks are served and safari stories are shared. When a larger group (e.g., 8 people) visits the camp, one of the common tents can be made the exclusive lounging/dining tent for that group. The other tent will then be set up as a lounging/dining tent for the other guests. Fantastic meals are served in the dining tent or in a private location: your own veranda or under the Serengeti stars.
The northern Serengeti areas are renowned for privacy from other tourists and fabulous wildlife viewing, particularly for viewing the great wildebeest migration July-Oct. Drives in these areas, short trips or full day explorations give you close encounters with the animals. Lunch in the bush while enjoying an amazing view and delicious food and wine, is a welcome interruption to otherwise action packed days.
As the camp moves periodically throughout the year, this mobile camp give you the best combined game viewing of not only the world renown game of Serengeti and also of the great wildebeest migration.
