Olakira Camp

Serengeti Mobile Camp, Tanzania

Olakira Camp

Olakira Camp is a small nine-tent mobile camp that moves between two locations in the Serengeti in order to track the annual migration.

Olakira Camp is a semi-permanent bush camp that changes location twice yearly in order to track the great wildebeest migration.

One of the best of mobile camps in the Serengeti, Olakira Camp offers a standard of accommodation that rivals many permanent camps, and is always well-situated to catch the spectacle that is the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra.

Between December and March Olakira is located in Ndutu, towards the southern boundaries of the Serengeti. It moves up to the northern Serengeti, close to the border with the Masai Mara, in June and remains there until November. The camp is closed during April and May. You will sometimes see Olakira referred to as Olakira Ndutu or Olakira Mara, according to its location.

Olakira is a cut above the average mobile bush camp in terms of the service and quality of the accommodation on offer, offering a standard of luxury comparable to many fixed camps. It's not a top-grade camp, but it's very comfortable and the service is superb. The guest tents, of which there are only nine, are large and spacious, and feature generous double beds, private verandahs, and full en-suite facilities. The shared dining and lounge tents are beautifully presented.

Accommodation

Olakira's nine guest tents are both spacious and comfortable, and feature king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms with bucket showers and toilets. Private verandahs overlook the Serengeti.

Dining

The dining experience is another area where Olakira stands out from other mobile camps. Delicious multi-course meals are served each evening in the candle lit dining tent. You can choose to dine around the communal dining table or in a more private location, whether that's under the stars or on your tent's verandah.
