Olakira means 'star' in Maasai. The mobile nature of the camp allows it to move to the best areas for wildlife viewing with the seasons, in the north near the Mara River from June to November and in the south at Ndutu from December to March.

You'll be met on arrival at the airstrip and welcomed with a drink and snack before your drive to the camp. Here you'll be greeted by the camp manager and given a briefing about the camp. 

Olakira Camp has nine guest tents. All have large beds, wide private verandas, convenient bathroom facilities with shower, wash basin and an environmentally friendly toilet. Bedrooms contain daybeds and arnchairs and each has a painted map of the wildebeest migration. Two of the tents are interconnecting and have a shared bathroom, making them ideal for families. The central area has a lounge tent, library, bar and dining area. Meals can also be enjoyed out in the open in the covered buffet area and by the camp fire.

The camp offers full day and half-day game drives every day in borh locations. Between December and March, when in Ndutu, walking safaris with an experienced guide and armed national park ranger are also offered.

Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

The highlight of an amazing holiday. Views from your tent of the Mara river, staff who want to make your visit very personal and special and hot showers whenever you want - just ask for the canvas bag to be refilled!! Great fun! The rooms were large and the bed extremely comfortable It is hard to believe this camp moves every six months leaving nothing behind. What ever else you do visit Olakira it is stunning. We saw 5 crossings of the Mara river by Wildebeest and Zebra but even without that the game and bird viewing is first class. We saw a Leopard for about 20 minutes parading in front of us. Then spend the evening round the fire pit chatting over the experiences you've had. Kenneth the manager was always on hand and had a happy, hard working team with him.
