Mark (Camp Manager) and all the staff were great. The camp has very nice tents with beautiful views out the front great for watching the sun come up. Brought fresh coffee to the tent for our wake-up call. While the tents don't have running water, the camp guys will bring you hot water in the morning and afternoon on your request. The food was outstanding with lots of fresh fruit, great meat dishes & vegetables – including fresh bread in the shape of a crocodile! Plenty of beer and wine available & we had happy hour each night before dinner by the campfire. One of the girls in our party was celebrating her 50th birthday, and the chef made her a cake to celebrate the big day.
- 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
