This camp was recommended to us by our travel advisor at Audley, and it could not have been better. We were particularly keen to witness the migration of the wildebeest across the Mara River - and what we saw was like watching a BBC wildlife programme - just what we hoped for, and more. Truly amazing. The staff at the...

We spent three nights in this camp and can recommend it as top notch. The service and facilities are excellent. A fantastic location for the migration. The chef produced amazing food. Our guide Nathan was a real gem. His knowledge and demeanour were amazing. If you get the choice ask for him. He is really good.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here during our honeymoon, while it was positioned in the Northern Serengeti right opposite one of the major wildebeest migration crossing sites. As a viewing location for the migration it couldn't get any better. The close proximity to the crossing site allows guests to quickly reach the site via car (3 min drive)...

Experiencing the Serengeti with the staff of Olakira Camp was absolutely incredible! The accommodations were everything you needed set on a rise just above the Mara River, a terrific view. Our guides, Nathan and Karim, were the best! They knew the animals, where to find them, and shared much about the conservation efforts. We saw the big 5 with them...

My husband and I spent two nights as part of our safari honeymoon (mid Feb 2014) and loved every minute at Olikira. We booked through Planet Africa, which is affiliated with the Asilia Lodges. From the moment we arrived, from the towel service when we got out of the cars, to when we left, we were in heaven. Olikira is...

My husband, one of our sons and I stayed at the Olakira Camp in December 2013 and we are still talking about the experience! We deliberately wanted to experience a camp that moves seasonally and we weren't disappointed. Hundreds more zebra and wildebeests arrived daily during our stay giving us a real sense of how the migration forms. Spectacular. The...

This camp was situated in an area of the serengeti where we got to see many lions and cheetahs. The tents were great and offered everything necessary for a luxury place to stay in the Serengeti. Food was good and the wine also was very good. I know this camp is mobile, so the view itself will change, but I...

Everything is so organized, clean and the staff are all so helpful and there when you need them. These aren't tents, their small houses.

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
