My wife and I have just returned from a safari,in the Serengeti to view the great migration three of the nights were spent at Olakira Camp, if you want to be in the heart of the migration you would be hard pressed to find a better location, a better equipped camp, for great game drives, great guides and drivers(a huge thanks goes to Albert for the excellent game spotting)with great food, great service and great staff, who go out of their way to ensure you have a great holiday safari,
the "TENTS" are huge and serviced two or three times a day, they come with electricity, flushing loo's hot water bucket showers as and when you need them, bathroom luxuries, robes, torches for the dark hours, walkie talkies if you need assistance, but you always had a Masai warrior guarding your tent in the dark hours, roaring lions and a roaring camp fire with a cocktail, wine or beer to try and outdo your fellow travellers stories of great animal sightings, and there are plenty to share, I have already recommended this camp to both family and friends, and if we are lucky enough to go back to Tanzania, Asilia's Olakira will be on the bucket list, superb, many thanks for the great memories.
- 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
