Completely Amazing!

All of the reviews are true! This camp is completely amazing! I selected Asilia specifically because of the reviews I read on TripAdvisor and I have to say the camp was exactly as described.

We stayed for two nights in mid-March on our way further into the Serengeti. I wish we stayed longer. There are so many reviews which go into detail about the comfort level and service that Olakia provides. I think it's pretty fully covered and you can expect an amazing experience."

Camping Made Comfortable!

During our honeymoon trip in the beginning of March this proved to be the best location we stayed in for seeing the big cats. After 2 nights here we headed into the central Serengeti which seemed a common theme amongst the other guests too.The camp itself was relatively small (with around 9 guests tents) and is non-permanent so moves location around the park depending on the time of year.
We enjoyed our stay here very much and would recommend all the Asilia properties we stayed at. This is a lot more of a rustic 'tent' experience than staying in a lodge, but going to sleep listening to the sounds of the wildlife is pretty special - we also spotted zebra, giraffe and wildebeest from the camp which made it an experience.
This is an Eco camp, so water is precious and the bucket shower system works by requesting a hot shower in advance, so the staff go and fill up the buckets with hot water. The staff however were always happy to help, and the wake up calls with hot drinks and cookies were wonderful, and we loved the hot water bottles they put in the bed at night!"

Awe Inspiring!

Stayed 3 nightts in this camp and it was simply fantastic! The service that I got from everyone in the camp was exceptional! Food was brilliant and sitting round the fire for pre-dinner drinks etc was just out of this world! The last night I was there the camp was besieged with wilderbeest the entire night! Absolutely brilliant! I loved every minute of it. The tent was amazing and I just loved the walkie talkie to let the staff know that you were ready for your shower! It was absolutely great and I was really sorry to leave!"

Special!

This is one camp that you need to include in your itinerary for the Serengeti. The whole experience is just something that I will remember for a long time. From the moment you arrive you feel at home and the people really care about you. Everything were carefully explained, from the showers to the walkie talkie. Joseph that filled our buckets for the showers every night was a star. The tent is huge and the bathroom section has everything that you will find in a chalet. It was wonderful going to bed each night with the unspoilt view of thesurroundings."

Great camp, friendly staff

We spent one night at Olakira Camp when it was at the Mara river. Beautiful location, perfect wilderness feel and very friendly staff. We even managed to see the Wildebeest migration cross the Mara river twice!!"

Our Happy New Year Adventure!

My daughter and I were guests of Olakira during the second week of January, 2014. Our first impression was "Oh my, are we going to be okay?" Well, after 1 full day and night we were in love with it! Being put out in tent #8 out of 9 guests tents, and being pretty far away from the main camp, we needed to be brave and confident. We did just fine. It ended up being our favorite 3 days of our 4 country,16 day adventure. Our guide, Goodluck was great, and so were all of the staff, including our Maasai warrior who escorted us to our tent every night. The food is fantastic! The other guests we got to know at meal times were interesting and fun. And then there are the animals! I am still thinking about them 3 weeks later. I highly recommend staying at this camp. You will have everything you need and then some, and you will take home some fantastic memories! (By the way; I am 57 and my daughter is 26)."
