Olakira was a phenomenal highlight of our Tanzanian safari. Our tent was perfectly appointed to make you comfortable while not at all spoiling the experience of camping in the wild. The showers were hot and the bed was quite comfortable. The laundry service was a great help too.
What set Olakira apart, however, from all of our other camps was the social atmosphere and the staff. Each night we looked forward to getting back to camp to sit around the camp fire and listen to stories of the day. The family style dinners were always full of laughter and conversation. And the staff was certainly the most helpful and friendly group we encountered. All of this while being able to gaze out over the Mara river, in the middle of nowhere. Quite amazing.
- 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
