Review

The sister camp to Sayari, Olakira Camp is the roving alternative and, like Nomads, is a mobile tented camp. With this comes the flexibility and reliability of being near the game...but the drawback of losing some of the comfort of a permanent camp. Olakira stays up in the very north of the Serengeti for out summer months and then shifts down to the southern plains for the calving season from December until March.

Location

As with many migratory camps, the emphasis is not on the camp itself, which is usually fairly simple, but on the experience of being out in the bush and surrounded by game. This, Olakira Camp executes really well and, for those looking to have a more "raw" experience while on safari then we would recommend either here or Nomads.

Layout

The tents themselves are the usual fare...comfortable beds, ensuite bucket showers and long drop loos, and an outside covered area to relax during the day to read or watch game as it wanders through and past the camp. These tents are a great way to get the feel for the bush...it can be a little disconcerting to wake up at 5 in the morning to hear a giraffe munching on the bush next to you....but it is also something you will never forget!!

In our opinion, Nomads probably just shades it as far as overall experience goes as they offer a private guide and vehicle as standard...but Olakira Camp is still a great option and has the benefit of getting cheaper if used alongside other Asilia camps, making it great value.
