Olakira

Overview

With the famous migrating herds of wildebeest, zebra and antelope traversing a huge range in the Serengeti National Park, how do you give yourself a good chance of finding them? Simple, follow them! From June to November Olakira Camp has a prime site in the pristine wilderness of the northern Serengeti very close to one of the Mara River crossing points, so you are never far from the action. When the herds head south so does the camp, occupying a location in a shady forest from December to March close to the plains where the herds graze and calve before moving on again. 

The camp has nine traditional tents for that authentic under canvas experience and lanterns to add a touch of romance.
