Olakira Camp Summary
Olakira Camp is an excellent, small tented camp that shadows the migration in the Serengeti ensuring a fantastic safari experience. Not only is Olakira Camp always well positioned for prime viewing of the migration but it offers a really authentic safari. The safari guides are also some of the best in Tanzania.
In the early part of the year from December to March, Olakira is perfectly situated to witness the calving of wildebeest. In the dryer months from June to October the camp moves to the Northern Serengeti to have a front row seat for when the big herds move north. Under canvas and intimate, Olakira Camp captures the essence of classic mobile tented safaris, reminiscent of safaris in the 1930’s.
The camp shadows the Great Migration through the Serengeti and is designed to ensure optimum game viewing opportunities. The camp moves twice a year between carefully chosen campsites, allowing for superb game viewing at all times. Meaning “star” in Swahili, Olakira Camp aims to deliver an intimate and authentic safari experience.
From June to November Olakira Camp enjoys one of the most pristine corners of the northern Serengeti; pitched in the tranquil Bolongoja region to ensure an exclusive unspoilt taste of Tanzania. Surrounded by untouched wilderness, Olakira Camp is located just 300-metres from one of the crossing points used by the herds to traverse the Mara River.
In November the camp is closed to visitors as Olakira is dismantled and moved to the south. From December until March, it is a small shady forest east of Ndutu that Olakira calls home; views of a seasonal stream framing the vistas of iconic grasslands. Officially situated inside the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area (NCCA), it allows Olakira’s highly trained guides to offer drives both within the NCCA and across the border in the southern Serengeti.
