I honestly do not know where to begin.... I think the first thing to say about this amazing place is simply, Beyond Exceptional! Honestly. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with open arms - the genuine friendliness and hospitality shown towards my husband and I was real and so very, very touching. The camp itself took our breaths... More

We stayed at Asilia's Olakira Camp in its northern location nearer the Mara River. The location is perfect with a great view over the river and hills behind. It is right in the heart of the wildlife area - animals are always visible and frequently visit the camp (including a thrilling night visitation by a pride of lions). The staff... More

We added a short, 3 night safari in the Serengeti to our holiday , after spending 10 days in Zanzibar in September this year. All ideas for camps and lodges were made by Gondwana Tours & Safaris. We found all their suggestions spot on and had a fablous time. Olakira Camp in the north Serengeti was, in short, fantastic! Pascal,... More

Pascal and the staff at Olakira camp were just great. |everything about our stay lived up to expectations. Firstly the tents, they are comfortable and roomy with good views of the Mara river. Little touches like early morning coffee brought to the tent with your wake up call show the attentiveness of the staff. The meals are first rate and... More

We traveled a month this fall in four different African countries visiting a total of seven game camps. While each camp was comfortable and the staff welcoming, Olakira Camp on the Mara River, an Asilia managed facility, was our "African aha" moment and our experience there raised the bar exponentially in all areas of gracious hospitality and animal sightings.

I absolutely did not want to leave this place. The accommodations are better than most hotels (including flushing toilet in your tent!) and situated in a spectacular position overlooking the Mara river in the beautiful Serengeti National Park. There is a staff of 15 or so operating the camp and they wait on you hand and foot and take such... More

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
