Olakira Migration: Our View

Immerse yourself in the Great Migration at Olakira Migration. You’ll feel the earth vibrate during winter crossings of the brave wildebeest as they face the mighty rivers in the north or be moved 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, as well as the Ndutu region. Home from December to March is in the NCA (Ngorongoro Conservation Area). Game drives cover both the NCA itself and the southern Serengeti, allowing for frequent sightings of big cats, elephant, buffalo and the more elusive African wild dog. As the dry days of winter arrive, Olakira Migration relocates north to the confluence of the Mara and Bolongonja rivers for spectacular game viewing at the Mara River itself.

Whilst Olakira Migration is known for its superb locations during the Migration, the camp has one more surprise that awaits you – their brand new stargazing tents. Olakira’s tents have been perfectly designed so that a portion of the tent boasts a 270-degree view from beneath a meshed net, offering you an outdoor experience whilst still remaining indoors. These stargazing tents allow you the flexibility to roll your bed into the meshed area for a magical experience of sleeping beneath the stars. With the galaxies glittering above you while you dream about the day’s adventures – it truly is an experience that you don’t want to miss out on.

Olakira Migration: The Details

Olakira Migration follows the migration throughout the year, offering the closest possible view of the action. The canvas tents are designed to blend into the bush without leaving a trace,?though that doesn’t mean that they scrimp on comfort. Admire the sprawling plains of the Serengeti or Ndutu region from the dining tent, or spend a leisurely afternoon in an armchair, watching zebras or Thomson’s gazelles pass by. After dark, dinner is served under the stars. 

This mobile camp sources its organic produce from local farmers for a menu of wholesome, delicious meals. Start the day with a continental buffet or a full English breakfast. At lunch, the light buffet includes fresh salads and homemade bread. Dinner is a three-course affair served in the dining tent or under the stars.
