As the great Migration makes its way across the expansive Serengeti plains, so the luxury seasonal Olakira Camp follows. In the early part of the year, Olakira is perfectly situated to witness the calving of wildebeest.

Olakira Camp is a classic, mobile safari camp that moves between the southern and central Serengeti, attempting to stay close to the Migration from December to June, through pre-planned moves (the northern Serengeti, where the Migration typically wanders around from mid July to November, is covered by its sister camp Sayari Camp). ‘Olakira’ means ‘star’ in the Maasai language.

Typically, the camp will be in the Ndutu area from mid-December to March in order to witness the magical calving season of the wildebeest in the southern Serengeti. From June onward, the camp moves north to follow the Migration, staying in the central Serengeti for the rest of the season. These move patterns are subject to change, as the philosophy behind the camp is to be as close to the action as possible.

A stay in Olakira Camp is not about 5 star luxury though; it’s about something more than that. Being in the middle of this wonderful spectacle, with wild animals roaming around camp at night, is a dream come true to even the most experienced of travelers.
