We travelled as a couple to Serengeti in February/March this year to observe the birthing of the Wildebeest. Olakira was our camp of choice and we were so pleased with how it turned out. Pascal the manager and his team (Michael, Karim, Future and many others) looked after us as if we were family and nothing was to much trouble. Our wedding anniversary was on the 29th February and the fuss made, the special dinner and the cake that was produced all made our celebration very special indeed. We had visits from the animals and an elephant who took a liking to the fruit and vegetables in the kitchen all made our wildlife experience all the more authentic. A truly remarkable camp.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Immerse yourself in the Great Migration at Olakira Migration Camp. You will feel the earth vibrate during brave winter crossings of the mighty rivers in the north, or be moved beyond measure by the mass summer calving on the south's grassy plains. Olakira follows the massive herds of wildebeest to two spectacular locations in the north and south of the Serengeti National Park. Home from December to March is the southern Serengeti, where herds of wildebeest calve simultaneously and the plains throng with new life. As the dry days of winter arrive, Olakira relocates north to the confluence of the Mara and Bolongonja rivers for spectacular game viewing at the Mara River itself and around the Lamai Wedge. ... more less
