Olakira Camp

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

In no­mad fash­ion, Olakira Camp changes its lo­ca­tion twice a year. Be­tween De­cem­ber and March the tented camp can be found in Ndutu in the south­ern Serengeti, where you’ll wit­ness the mag­i­cal spec­ta­cle of thou­sands of an­i­mals giv­ing birth to their young. Dur­ing our stay, we en­coun­tered two hi­lar­i­ous and very irate honey badgers—one of which showed re­mark­able courage by try­ing to at­tack the jeep. For the win­ter months, the camp shifts north to Bol­o­gonja on the Mara River, where you’ll spot the best of the leg­endary Great Mi­gra­tion of more than a mil­lion wilde­beest. Tents are spa­cious and richly dec­o­rated with thick woollen rugs and big com­fort­able beds, and steam­ing hot showers are avail­able on re­quest. Sit around the fire in the evening with glasses of South African red wine and lis­ten to the sounds of the bush, and marvel at the sump­tu­ous three-course din­ners that emerge from a tented kitchen in the heart of the African bush. olakira.asil­i­aafrica.com
