Sleep Beneath The Stars At Olakira Camp
By Britta Foulis – Content Marketing Manager
Olakira Camp is one of our three Mobile Migration Camps, it moves twice a year to two different locations in the north and south of the Serengeti National Park, keeping up with the herds of The Great Migration.
From December to March, Olakira calls the southern Serengeti home, where herds of wildebeest calve simultaneously and the plains throng with new life. As the dry days of winter arrive, Olakira relocates up north to the confluence of the Mara and Bolongonja rivers for spectacular game viewing at the Mara River itself.
Stargazing Beds At Olakira
Whilst Olakira is known for its superb locations during The Migration, the camp has one more surprise that awaits you – our brand new stargazing tents. Olakira’s tents have been perfectly designed so that a portion of the tent boasts a 270-degree view from beneath a meshed net, offering you an outdoor experience whilst still remaining indoors.
Olakira’s stargazing tents allow you the flexibility to roll your bed out into the meshed area for a night underneath the stars.
With the galaxies glittering above you while you dream about the day’s adventures – it truly is an experience that you don’t want to miss out on.
Our brand new stargazing tents at Olakira Camp are seriously special – just look at that view!
What Is There To Do At Olakira Camp?
There is lots to do and see when spending time with us at Olakira. Of course, your main focus will most likely be to catch the herds so you’ll be happy to know that there are 2 scheduled game drives a day at camp.
The very best time for rewarding game viewing is in the cooler early mornings and late afternoons when the animals are at their most active.Depending on the season, your day may start slightly earlier orlater, but the general pace of life in camp is focused on giving you the very best possible game-viewing experience! If you’re keen on being out in the bush all day, that’s not a problem!For a day of uninterrupted game viewing, your guide can organise apacked breakfast or lunch to take with you and enjoy it in the shade of the trees. Dinner can also be arranged out in the bush for an unforgettable dining experience under the African night sky.
If you’re up for a bit more of an adventure, Hot Air Ballooning is a popular activity for guests who stay with us at Olakira. It offers you an even more epic view of the herds from high above – taking in the hundreds of miles of land and wildlife.
When it is in the north (June to November), Olakira is situated close to several villages and communities on the outskirts of the Serengeti. Spend a morning or afternoon visiting one of the schools or the marketplace and learn a little more about the culture of the local Kuria people.
Can you imagine dozing off whilst the skies sparkle and twinkle above?
So come and join us at Olakira on your next safari and be one of the first people to enjoy our brand new stargazing tents – we promise you will love the experience so much you’ll want to renovate your own bedroom when you get back home!
