Stayed at Olakira for four days with a friend. This camp is excellent and was recommended by our travel agent, Safari Consultants, and I am so pleased we chose to stay here. After a long hot dusty drive you are greeted by wet cold flannels, what a nice touch. For a mobile camp, the facilities are first class, proper flushing...

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,...

Stayed here following on from a wonderful tented camp in Kicheche, Kenya. Have food allergies and the chef was absolutely magnificent in producing wonderful meals at dinner. All the team set out to ensure we had a comfortable stay which we did in spite of the rain. We had our own driver so didn't use the camp's guides. The tent...

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!!

My husband and I stayed at Olakira Camp a few weeks ago. It was our first time to Africa, and Olakira was our 3rd camp of the trip. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about everywhere we stayed throughout our Tanzanian adventure, but we definitely left Olakira with a special spot for the camp, and the people there,...

This camp is absolutely spectacular and has views of the Mara river it is so close! We are greeted with scented washcloths and ice tea on arrival and washcloths are presented every time we come back to camp. Our tent is #7 and is a triple with good matresses and decent pillows. There is a sitting area as well as...

It's been more than a year since our honeymoon in Sep 2012, but we could never forget the unforgettable experience at Olakira. It was in a perfect location right in front of the Mara River, providing excellent opportunities for watching the wildebeest migration across the River. We were really lucky. Within a few hours upon arrival at the camp was...

My sister and I recently traveled to Tanzania and Rwanda for a 2 week Safari. Our tour operator, Planet Africa, suggested Olakira Camp and we could not have been more pleased. The staff is superb as are the tents just off the masa mara river. Each night we enjoyed cocktails by the fire before dinner. One night we were surprised...

My wife and i stayed 3 nights in this camp and we could have stayed 3 weeks, it was so wonderful. The service provided by all staff is better than i have experienced in many very up market hotels in popular cities around the world. The tents and very well laid out, very clean and fitted with little extra niceties.

All the Asililia camps were outstanding, and Olakira was no exception. Some of the best food on our safari was here. Gorgeous omelette made on an open fire, every day. Fresh fruit, yogurt, and muesli. Watching the sunrise from the breakfast table, over the Mara river was a treat! A perfect location. The staff could not have been friendlier or...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Immerse yourself in the Great Migration at Olakira Migration Camp. You will feel the earth vibrate during brave winter crossings of the mighty rivers in the north, or be moved beyond measure by the mass summer calving on the south's grassy plains. Olakira follows the massive herds of wildebeest to two spectacular locations in the north and south of the Serengeti National Park. Home from December to March is the southern Serengeti, where herds of wildebeest calve simultaneously and the plains throng with new life. 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 and around the Lamai Wedge. ... more   less
