We have stayed at Asilia four times now - twice at this camp. All the people there are all amazing! The service is better than a 5 star hotel - staff attends to your every need - and with a smile on their faces! They all gather to greet you when you come, and to wish good fortune as you leave. Not just when you arrive and leave the camp, but also every time you go on a game drive. The accommodations are comfortable, the food excellent (they try to give you twice as much as you need), and the guides very knowledgeable. Asilia is also very "green," minimizing on plastic (giving you a very nice water bottle), purchasing their food from locals, and hiring locals whenever possible. This is a 10 star company and operation!
- 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
