Olakira is a small mobile tented camp moving from northern to southern Serengeti / Ngorongoro Conservation Area. From beginning of December to the end of March the camp is mounted nearby Ndutu.
During these months the wildebeest migration should be grazing in the fertile short grass southern plains where it moves in a rather chaotic way following the rains and the regrowth of fresh pastures. Ndutu, which straddles the Serengeti / Ngorongoro C.A. border is a good base to explore the area.

The camp consists of 9 safari tents well spaced out in order to grant an adequate level of privacy. Each tent has a double bed or two twin beds, en suite bathroom with flush loo and running water in basin while hot water for the shower is supplied morning and evening at the time agreed with the camp staff. Electricity is supplied by solar panels and accumulated into batteries for night supply however there are no sockets in the rooms and mobiles and video devices need to be charged at the lounge.

The camp is complemented by a the mess tent, by the lounge and by the unfailing campfire. Meals can be served privately under the starry sky.

If we only consider the tents furnishing then we could say that Olakira is a upper-mid specification tented camp but the service delivered is such that it may instead be classified as a high standard one.

If you wish to stay at this camps be aware you have to book well in advance to get room.
