EXPERIENCE OLAKIRA

The annual Serengeti Wildebeest Migration is, quite simply, a drama in two acts: the dramatic dash for freedom as the herds cross the deadly Mara River on their march from Kenya, and the remarkable months of calving in the lush grasslands of the south. And with Olakira Camp itself migrating twice per year, you’ll always have a front-row seat to the action.
With the expertise of top guides, the camp has year round access to the finest areas in the Serengeti for game viewing. Game drives are the main activity at Olakira Camp.

In the evening, guests gravitate towards the campfire to reflect on the day’s adventures. Here under the Serengeti stars, the friendliest staff share stories and serve a delicious dinner few would imagine possible in the middle of the wilderness.
