Luxury Holidays At Olakira Migration Camp

Offering an unforgettable experience on your Tanzania safari, the unique Olakira Migration Camp moves location twice annually to ensure that you always have the best seat to witness the spectacles of the Serengeti. Between June and November, the luxury camp stands in the north, offering great opportunities to watch as The Great Migration crosses the Mara River, while the rest of the year is spent on the shores of Lake Masek in the south of the Serengeti. No matter where the camp is, you are guaranteed once-in-a-lifetime game drives, while visits to local villages can also be enjoyed when Olakaria is in the north. This intimate mobile camp features just nine stargazing tents, which have been designed to flaunt views of the Serengeti skies from beneath a meshed net, allowing you to sleep beneath the stars while maintaining the security of your tent.

Due to its migration during the year, the camp offers access to the finest areas in the Serengeti for wildlife viewing, perfectly showcased on twice-daily game drives. Lion, cheetah, leopard, wildebeest and hyena can be spotted in both locations, with other species – including Nile crocodile, elephant and bat-eared fox – specific to where the camp is in the Serengeti.

Wildlife Encounters

The movement of the camp follows the famed Great Migration, a cycle during which millions of wildebeest, gazelles and zebra (pursued by their predators) embark on a 1,000-kilometre circuit in search of water. When in the north, the camp offers the opportunity to sight this breathtaking spectacle, watching as thousands of animals cross the rivers. The southerly location showcases a different side to the migration: calving season, when an estimated 500,000 calves are born during a three-week window in February, also drawing many predators to the area.

Culture & History

When the camp is in the northern Serengeti between June and November, there is the option to visit several villages and communities located on the outskirts of the national park. Learn more about the culture and way of life of the local Kuria people as you spend a morning visiting a school or bustling marketplace.

In Addition

All meals and drinks are included in your stay - excluding cellar wines, premium spirits and Champagne.

Please note that children under the age of 5 years are not permitted to stay at Olakira Migration Camp.
