Olakira Mobile Camp (North) Location Map

Olakira Camp is a luxurious under-canvas mobile camp that moves with the seasons, forever following the migrating wildebeest and zebra herds to ensure you have a front-row seat to the greatest show on earth.

Between June and November, Olakira is located in the northern Serengeti plains, in the tranquil and pristine Bolongoja region. The camp is a mere 300 metres from a crossing point at the Mara River, where herds of wildebeest plunge into the water amid the jaws of the resident Nile crocodile and hippo on their great journey to and from Kenya. Feel the earth vibrate as the brave wildebeest face this mighty river.

Fine linens, fine dining and a touch of nomadic romance are the hallmarks of this superb safari camp, which all but disappears into the surrounding African bush. Combined with unbeatable hospitality and highly knowledgeable guides if you are on a fly-in package, Olakira treats you to an unusually personal and authentic East African wilderness experience.

With just 9 en-suite tents, Olakira - meaning 'shining star' in kiSwahili - ensures an intimate and authentic wilderness experience. Each has a kingsize bed (twin beds are available) complete with an under-cover veranda with comfortable chaise longue, and en-suite bathroom and dressing area with hot-water safari bucket showers and flushing toilet. There are also 2 family tents. The 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.You also have 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, this is truly is an experience that you don’t want to miss out on.

The mess and dining tents echo the style and ambience of the rooms, with panoramic views of the sprawling Serengeti plains. Spend the afternoon relaxing in an armchair in the mess area or get comfortable under the shade of the surrounding trees and simply watch the game pass by. When darkness falls, dinner is served either under canvas or beneath a glittering canopy of stars in a small clearing close by, accompanied by the night sounds of the bush.
