ACCOMMODATION AND FACILITIES
Olakiri Camp is a warm and intimate experience, with eight spacious and comfortable tents sleeping up to 16 guests. Each tent has a king-size bed, en-suite bathroom and private verandah, arranged to offer the best views over the Serengeti. The Camp’s semi-permanent nature means that one really feels at one with the landscape, but without foregoing the usual comforts such as hot showers, toilets, and storage space for clothes. The large and spacious walk-in tents in natural browns, creams and oranges, are designed to blend into the Serengeti’s own palette. Floors are covered with rugs. The tents’ gauze windows have canvas flaps that can be opened to let in the cooling African breeze and for your own personal views of the National Park. At each Olakiri site a central ‘mess’ tent is erected for dining and socialising, and there’s a comfortable lounge area with a well-stocked drinks cabinet. Although there are power sockets for charging phones and cameras, Olikira has no lights, preferring to light the tents by storm lanterns, which creates a tremendous atmosphere. Outside the main mess tent there’s an open fireplace where guests gather before dinner. Sometimes the staff band entertains the safari-goers as they dine under the stars – the perfect end to an exciting day’s safari.
