Olakira is one of the finest mobile camps in the Serengeti. It follows the same route as Serian in that it moves twice a year. From July to November they’re in the north of the Serengeti in the Karatu region. Then from December to March they move back down to fantastic spot in the Ndutu plains. At Olakira you are guaranteed great guiding, lovely food and a luxurious but authentic safari camp. Its position in the north is unbeatable as you can actually see the river crossing from the comfort of the camp.

Olakira - The Facts 

Olakira is a classic mobile Serengeti safari camp. It moves twice a year to follow the migration and both spots are fantastic.  When it’s based up in the north you have actual views of the famous great migration crossing the Mara River en masse.  It’s the only camp where you can see the crossings whilst enjoying your breakfast or lunch.  In the south, it’s located in the Ndutu plains in close proximity to the calving herds.
Olakira is rustic but luxurious, and hecnce very popular for honeymoons!  It is just what you would expect from a safari camp; it is a small with 8 tents and offers a warm and personalised service.  The tents are fully furnished with flushing loos and nice showers.  It can be thought of as a home away from home in the Tanzanian safari bush!
The manager Clint is a big bird watcher; and he has passed on his wealth of knowledge to his guides who take great pride in their jobs.
Olakira is a fantastic camp and offers a great value for money option in one of the last few remote areas in the Serengeti.

We had experienced guides throughout, Afred at the crator and Fadhil in Serengetti. I think we all preferred Serengetti and Olakira camp because it is less touristy and more in the wild and we were fortunate to see the big 5 on this trip, plus the Great migration (albeit a 3 hour drive from our camp due to the late rain this year).
We would be happy to serve as a reference to other customers and will definitely use your company in the future for any trip to Africa!
Thanks again and all the best
