      Olakira Camp (Ndutu, Dec - Mar)

      One Camp. Two Locations. More than a Million Animals.

      The Serengeti National Park, home to the Great Migration, hosts the largest concentration of wildlife in the world. Over a million wildebeest and zebra move through the ecosystem, followed by lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and wild dogs. The sheer numbers combined with the daily drama of life and death makes this an unforgettable experience. Olakira Camp is a luxury mobile tented camp located within the park, moving twice a year between carefully chosen campsites allowing for superb game viewing of the Great Migration at all times. Between June and November, Olakira Camp establishes itself in one of the most unspoiled locations in the Northern Serengeti. Situated further east than most camps, Olakira allows guests the exclusive use of the largely undisturbed Bolongonia area. Situated close to the Mara River, the camp overlooks a crossing point regularly used during the Great Migration. From December until March, Olakira can be found on the southern plains of the Ndutu region of the Serengeti. Situated in the shade of a small forest, the camp overlooks a seasonal stream and the vast plains beyond. Each year herds of wildebeest and zebra return here to give birth, followed by a multitude of predators. Olakira, meaning “star” in Swahili, consists of eight spacious tents, each featuring a king-size bed and private veranda with stunning views of the Serengeti. The soft, neutral-colored furnishings, including beautiful rugs and patterned bedspreads, help to give these tents a simple and rustic understated style. Large gauze windows with canvas flaps can be left down to allow cool breezes in, or closed entirely for increased privacy. En-suite bathrooms are set behind a dividing canvas wall, with brass and wooden features, including bucket showers. Hot water is available on request. Time spent at Olakira Camp is channeled into either half- or full-day game drives. While in the Northern Serengeti, game drives may lead guests to the Mara River, unexplored bush of Bolongonia and the vast plains of Lobo and Wogakuria. This is a great location to be in when the migration crosses the crocodile infested Mara River. In the Southern Serengeti, game drives explore the Ndutu area. On these plains, the wildebeest and zebra give birth to the next generation amidst the threat of lion, leopard and other predators. Back in camp, storytelling, board games, stargazing or relaxing with a book are some of the activities which can be enjoyed. Private meals in the surrounding bush can also be arranged by camp management.
