Loved every minute at Olakira from the location of the Camp with views onto the Mara river, spaciousness and decor of tents to the very friendly and attentative staff. The food is fantastic, ate way too much! I thought 6 days maybe too long but I'm really pleased as we saw 4 crossings with 2 being really exciting. The sheer mass of wildebeest was amazing. Emanuel our guide was great in showing us as much as possible ( which I'm really grateful for) but he really wanted us to see the leopard up in the rocky area. We made the trip up there at least 10 times, missing out on all the action on the plains. I just never tired of the wildebeest and found their behaviour rather comical. Abuu and Michael were most attentative and took really good care of all our additional requests of rebooking flights. Eliah is the star of the party with an excellent sense of humour. Abuu arranged a surprise for our Wedding Anniversary at the river . We stopped for sundowners as usual and out of the Bush suddenly appeared half the camp staff, singing and dancing. Once again Eliah had us in stitches with his dancing abilities. We were presented with a cake and popped a bottle of champagne. More signing and dancing. The most memorable anniversary ever!
Thank you very much for an amazing stay. Highly recommended!

Absolutely perfect! The staff and camp manager, Micheal, were very attentive and went out of their way to make us feel special. They sang and danced for us and we felt like we were always waited on and appreciated. Our 75 year old Bebe was made to feel like the most special person--she was smiling from ear to ear the whole time. The food was delightful! All the meals were candlelit and some of the staff joined us for dinner every night. Our guide, Nathan, was phenomenal! He went above and beyond for us and was truly the best guide we have ever had. He made sure we saw everything there was to see and made the effort to really get to know us all. He was so friendly and professional, just a class act! He even helped us come up with a new classification of animals--"The Cute 5" --you heard it here first folks. All in all we couldn't have asked for a better Serengeti experience.

Thank you so much for sharing such lovely feedback. It's lovely to hear that you all felt at home with us, including Bebe. We're so glad that you had such a great time on your game drives with your guide, Nathan - we'll definitely pass your feedback on to him. It's possible that "The Cute 5" may catch on and become the next best thing in safaris! We loved having you with us and would love to welcome you back again in the future.

My husband and I recently traveled on our honeymoon to Tanzania with the help of True Africa and Asilia. From the start we were excited about Olakira Camp, but in reality it was our favorite location of the entire trip. From the incredible staff to the facilities we kept wondering if we were living in a movie. Our guide Nathan was exceptional and his knowledge really set the experience apart. If you're thinking of traveling to see the migration look no further, this is your camp.

Room Tip: Every tent is a good tent. Exceptional.

We stayed here as part of a safari trip to Tanzania. The staff running the camp were as helpful and friendly as possible. They made every effort to see that we were happy and cared for. The two managers of the site (Michael and Goodluck) ran a really effective team. Our guide (Musa) was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.
We were at the camp for 3 nights and felt really sad to go. I know that this was an expensive few days but when you see the obvious care in setting up and running a camp in such a remote place it is clear where the money goes. Despite being in the middle of nowhere, the food, drink and accommodation were all excellent.
