Like the wildebeest that are the stars of the Serengeti Annual Migration, Olakira Camp is a wanderer; a luxurious under-canvas camp that moves with the seasons, forever following the herds to ensure you have a front-row seat to the greatest show on earth.
Fine linens, finer dining and a touch of nomadic romance are the hallmarks of this authentic East African safari camp. Whether it’s at the river crossings of the northern Serengeti or on the great grassy plains of the south, the intimate Olakira Camp ensures the best of the Serengeti is always right on your doorstep.
From June to November Olakira Mara River enjoys one of the most pristine corners of the northern Serengeti; pitched in the tranquil Bolongoja region to ensure an exclusive unspoilt taste of Tanzania. Surrounded by untouched wilderness, Olakira Mara River is located just 300-metres from one of the crossing points used by the herds to traverse the Mara River.
While daily game drives regularly stop at the Mara to observe the dramatic crossings across waters populated by hippo and crocodile, the area offers plenty of biodiversity. The wide-open plains of Lobo and Wogakuria are meeting points for the vast herds of migrating wildebeest; gathering on the plains to brave the treacherous waters of the Mara River and begin the march south. Once the wildebeest move on, topi, eland and smaller antelope return to the grasslands, quite once more.
As they’ve done for millennia, the herds will eventually answer the call of the Migration and head for the southern Serengeti’s endless grasslands; the perfect place to calve, graze and rest. They won’t be left alone here though: lion and cheetah will follow in their wake to claim their share of the spoils.
And so Olakira Ndutu will follow: in November the camp is closed to visitors as Olakira is dismantled and moved to the south.
From December until March, it is a small shady forest east of Ndutu that Olakira calls home; views of a seasonal stream framing the vistas of iconic grasslands. Officially situated inside the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area (NCCA), it allows Olakira’s highly trained guides to offer drives both within the NCCA and across the border in the southern Serengeti.

Ikoma Safari Camp is a permanent tented camp in the Serengeti Ikoma region in Tanzania. The Camp is located on the main wildebeest migration route between the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. It is raised up on the side of an impressive bush with broad scattered acacia trees and endlees savana.
The migration seasons at camp are centred around June to October when the herds pass trough the area. Game-viewing from the breakfast terrace can be superb. Additionally there is good resident game throughout the year, especially zebras, wilderbeest, impalas, giraffes and elephants.
Ikoma Safari Camp is just 10 km from the official gate to the Serengeti National Park. Ikoma Wildlife Area covers 450 sq km and acts as a buffer zone to the park itself where animals are free to come and go. The camp has the concession for this area which means they can operate game drives and walks and they work closely with the local villages. Fort Ikoma is 7km to the west and is now the headquarters of Serengeti National Park.
The Serengeti is a vast, grassy plain that stretches from north-eastern Tanzania into Kenya, where it is included in the Masai Mara Park. In Tanzania, the Serengeti National Park Spans 14.763 Km2 and is filled with great numbers of wildlife.
There are no fences around the park and the area stretches into not only the Masai Mara, but also the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Olduvai Gorge, the Maswa Game Reserve, Grumeti and the Western Corridor. During the annual migration, millions of animals can be seen in the Serengeti and park becomes one of the most spectacular game viewing destinations in the world. This amazing phenomenon has ensured a place for the Serengeti on the World Heritage Sites list.
The Great Migration This annual event is the crowing event on the wildlife calendar. Millions of animals, including vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and other antelope, trailed by predators take to the plains in search of better grazing. Largely weather dependent, it is hard to predict where the migration will be and when. Normally starting around July-August, the animals then move northwards, crossing the Grumeti River in a spectacular display of death, drowning and attacks by crocodiles. The animals usually return in October.
The camp restaurant offers cuisine with both local and international influences and serves themed lived cooked dinners, al la carte lunches and breakfast buffet.
All meals are served under the vaulted ceiling of the open-aired dining room, providing great views of the landscape below. The cuisine is international, using fresh local ingredients and a hint of African spices. Children can be catered for with early mealtimes, and we are happy to accommodate special dietary requirements.
Lunches are typically served buffet style, with a varying selection of soups, salads, and hot and cold dishes…and an assortment of delicious deserts.
Dinner is a 3-course meal served at your table. There is always plenty to eat and enough variety to ensure there is something to suit all tastes.
Internet services, Satellite TV, DVD, MP3, many difference spirits, batteries, books and maps for consulting.
Ikoma Safari Camp offer possibility to transfer clients from the Forty Ikoma airport and Seronera airport with two vehicles 4×4.
The Camp overlooks the vast of Serengeti plains home to staggering wildlife.
Sayari is also next and close to the migration Point of Mara River. Sayari Camp (formerly known as Sayari Mara Camp) is a luxurious permanent camp situated in the far north of the Serengeti National Park. The undulating bush around is bisected by the Mara River and home to permanent game all year round. This part of the Serengeti is also a great place to witness the great migration: it’s within the Serengeti National Park and is as remote as possible from any populated areas.
The camp has 15 luxurious tents perfectly blend with the majestic landscape of Serengeti.
- En-suite bathrooms, with spacious showers and egg-shaped baths large enough for two, offer similarly impressive Serengeti views.
- Fine linens and safari-chic décor offset the wilderness that lies just beyond the canvas walls, with king-size beds and private verandas to complete the world-class experience.
- Each tent is fully furnished with a king-size bed, private veranda, en suite bathroom, and a flush toilet.
- At the main camp a peaceful lounge and romantic dining room opens up onto a generous deck where natural rock frames the rim-flow pool overlooking game-rich plains and the distant Mara River. With such superb luxury in the world’s premier wilderness reserve, we wouldn’t blame you for spending your entire safari in camp.

Serengeti comes from the Maasai word “Siring” meaning “Endless Plain”, which really is what it means: hundreds of kilometers of flat surface land, better termed “The Sea of Grass On Plains”. The first understanding about Serengeti comes from its distinction of the ecosystem from the Serengeti National Park itself. The ecosystem encompasses the following: Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area in the south east, Ikorongo, Grumeti and Maswa Game Reserves in the western pockets, the Loliondo Game Control Area (also known as government approved hunting blocks) in the north east, and in the north by the famous Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, thus the Serengeti National Park itself is cushioned within these game control and reserves. The Serengeti ecosystem is approximately 27,000 square kilometers and the park is documented at 14,763 square kilometers.
