Olaado Camp

Serengeti & the North

Rating: Simple    

Olaado Camp overview

Olaado is a small mobile camp that moves between two sites in the Serengeti, ensuring the best game viewing including the great natural spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration. From mid-June to October it is in Kogatende in the north, and between December and March the camp moves to the Ndutu area to the south. Due to its size the camp has an intimate atmosphere, and staying here you feel immersed in nature.

There are 6 traditional walk-in safari tents with comfy beds. Screened windows let in ample light, and after dark lanterns give the interior a cosy glow. Each tent has its own bathroom at the back with a bucket shower, hand basin and flush toilet. To the front of the tent there's a shaded sitting area with a couple of safari chairs where you can while away the time between safaris.

Meals are eaten in the mess tent, out of the heat of the sun, with dinner often served out in the open under the starry sky. Given the remote location and basic conditions, the chef magics up some truly wonderful food. Just before dusk each day the camp fire is lit, providing a venue for sundowner drinks and the chance to look back at the highlights of the day's game viewing with fellow guests.  

details

Open: Olaado Camp is open from mid-June till October and again from December till March.

Location: Olaado Camp has 2 separate locations in the Serengeti: June to October (dry season) it is in Kogatende in northern Serengeti and December to March (green season) Olaado is is in the Ndutu between the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and southern Serengeti. These locations are selected to maximise game viewing by following the route of the annual migration. When the camp is in the northern Serengeti is also known as Kimburu Camp. 

Rooms: There are 6 safari tents spaced well apart. Each has a covered porch area with 2 safari chairs. Inside there are 2 twin beds which can be moved together to form a double bed on request, space for storing clothes and luggage and hurricane lamps. At the back of each tent divided from the bedroom by a canvas wall there’s an en-suite bathroom with a flush toilet, wash basin with a supply of fresh water and bucket shower for which you can request hot water. All bedding and towels are provided.

Activities: Game drives in the early morning and late afternoon are the main activity, to view resident game and to see the migration.

Facilities: The camp has a mess tent for shaded relaxation and dining. There are deck chairs you can move to sunny or shaded spots around camp, which are placed by the camp fire in the evening for sundowners.

Dining: Meals are eaten as a group, either at one table or at separate tables as preferred. During the day you eat in the comparative cool of the dining tent, and in the evening the dinner table is usually set up outside.

Children: Children aged 12 years and over are welcome.
