Olakira Camp 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.
Olakira Camp's 9 tents offer a modern take on the vintage charm of East Africa.
Each has a king-sized bed (twin beds are available) complete with rich linens, an under-cover veranda with comfortable chaise lounge,and en-suite bathroom and dressing area with hot-water safari bucket showers and flushing toilets.
Organic produce from local farms gives every meal here fresh appeal.
Continental breakfast or go for a cooked full English breakfast. At lunchtime make your choice from an appetizing buffet with a selection of salads and freshly baked breads to accompany your hot main dish. Don't fill up with too many of the tasty snacks that are served with your sundowners: dinner is a full three courses served at the table.
The mess and dining tents echo the style and ambiance of the rooms, with panoramic views of the sprawling Serengeti plains. Dinner is served either under canvas or beneath a glittering canopy of stars in a small clearing close by, accompanied by the night sounds of the bush.
