Olakira Camp is situated in a prime location for wildlife sightings and offers guests a range of luxurious tented suites from which to enjoy the incredible views.
Olakira also provides guests with excellent cultural experiences, as well as opportunities to participate in safari activities such as game drives, walking safari and hot air ballooning.
In addition, Olakira Camp is perfectly located to witness the great migration, one of nature's most impressive phenomena.
Between June and October, the Olakira Migration Camp is located in the north of the Serengeti to witness the crossing of the Mara River. During this time, visitors can watch massive herds of wildebeest take a leap of faith into the waters of the Mara River and face off with hungry Nile crocodiles. When the herds are on the move, the air is full of grunting, thudding hooves and billowing dust.
From December until March, Olakira moves to the southern plains of the Serengeti, where the wildebeest go to give birth and graze on lush grass, and predators such as lions and cheetahs gather to prey on the young.
