Olakira Camp - South

Serengeti NCCA, Tanzania

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

We love the semi-mobile nature of Olakira. The camp is moved a couple of times a year to make sure guests are staying in the heart of immense wildlife concentrations. Game viewing and also the homey camp atmosphere are big highlights. 

Olakira follows the massive herds of wildebeest to two spectacular locations in the north and south of the Serengeti National Park, as well as the Ndutu region. Home from December to March, is in the NCAA (Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority), game drives cover both the NCA itself and the southern Serengeti, allowing for frequent sightings of big cats, elephant, buffalo and the more elusive African wild dog. As the dry days of winter arrive, Olakira relocates north to the confluence of the Mara and Bolongonja Rivers for spectacular game viewing at the Mara River itself.

Olakira consists of 9 guest tents including 1 family tent. New to the camp are the stargazing tents. Olakira’s tents have been perfectly designed so that a portion of the tent boasts a 270-degree view from beneath a meshed net, offering you an outdoor experience whilst still remaining indoors. Our stargazing tents allow you the flexibility to roll your bed into the meshed area for a magical experience of sleeping beneath the stars. With the galaxies glittering above you while you dream about the day’s adventures – it truly is an experience that you don’t want to miss out on.

The annual Great Migration is a drama in two acts: the arresting dash for freedom as the herds cross the Mara River in the north, followed by the remarkable months of calving in the lush grasslands of the south. And with Olakira itself migrating between the two locations, you will always have a front-row seat to the action. Experience them for yourself with game drives twice a day from the camp.
