Great game drives - our guide (Kaneal, if I'm spelling it right) was very knowledgeable; he got us in very good places to observe what was happening - some domestic life with a pride of lions, the migration of about 400 wildebeest over the Mara River, a lone female lion eating a freshly killed wildebeest - lots and lots of birds --" See all these reviews: 7n in Kenya; 3n in Tanzania

Although the camp moves twice a year depending on the migration, you would never know as it looks permanent.
Great food and accommodation as always with these safari camps, the staff and guides are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive for your every need.
Our guide Eustace was superb in getting prime positions for the Mara crossing in competition with the many other safari vehicles jostling for a view.." See all these reviews: 17n in Kenya; 9n in Zimbabwe; 6n in Tanzania; 5n in Botswana; 5n in Zambia
"Spectacular camp in a beautiful setting"
They must have recently upgraded the showers — because the literature talks about bucket showers, but in fact the showers are easy to use, hot and powerful, and don't require any advance planning.
The service is superb. Our guide was outstanding. It's a mobile camp, so the individual rooms and common areas aren't as luxurious as other permanent camps that we have stayed in, but it's still very nice, the location is excellent, and the service is exemplary."

"Fine stay at Olakira"
The accommodation is comfortable, the food produced by chef John tasty and varied.
Rama the guide is well experienced and has good knowledge of the flora as well as the wildlife and birds. We had a great time together. There is a good varied terrain within distance of the camp and in January thousands of wildebeest and zebra and so also predators so that I gained a long list of mammals, birds and other wildlife."
