Activities at Olakira Camp
Balloon safaris are a romantic and evocative way of experiencing the wilderness of East Africa, as you silently fly over the plains teeming with herds of wildlife in the early morning. Typically, a balloon safari begins around 6 am and lasts for around 1-2 hours. Balloon safaris (additional cost) take off from designated sites in the nearby Ndutu Area. The safari is followed by a champagne breakfast in the bush, a fitting end to a memorable flight in the wild.
Experience the wild while being able to give back to the community and experience the true life of the Tanzania inhabitants.
Wildlife viewing and bird watching game drives are offered twice per day. Experienced guides encourage guests to see and experience the Serengeti through their eyes, sharing a world of small and large wonders that only they truly know and understand. Guests can arrange full days in the bush with picnic lunches or shorter excursions returning to enjoy the tranquility of camp.
