overview

Located in the Lamai Wedge of the famous Serengeti National Park, this intimate tented camp offers front-row seats to Nature's most dramatic spectacle: the Great Migration. From July to October, close to a million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle pass through the area in search of water and fresh pastures. Undeterred by the perilous river crossings and the multitude of predators that lie in wait, blind instinct drives them onward in an age-old dance of life and death.

Witness this event from the comfort and luxury of Olakira Lamai Camp, set within easy reach of the Mara River crossing points and lying within a spectacular region of wildlife and scenery known as the “honeypot” of the Serengeti. The rolling savannah landscape is home to a wide diversity of animals including the Big 5 to ensure an unparalleled game experience at any time of year.

Dining

Your guide awakens you each morning with a flask of tea or coffee and biscuits before you set off at sunrise for a game drive. Upon your mid-morning return, a selection of delicious and wholesome choices awaits you for a hearty brunch.

Spend a relaxing afternoon in the lounge or on your verandah before high tea is served. The tempting delicacies on offer will fortify you for the afternoon’s excitement, more than enough to keep you going until sunset drinks while out on your game drive.

The early evening is given over to cocktails and discussions of the day’s events before indulging in a sumptuous three-course dinner served in the dining room or under the stars. Enjoy a fireside cognac and the extravagance of the Milky Way before slipping under the covers, lulled to sleep by the sounds of the African night.

Tented Room

With just eight luxury tents in camp, there is a palpable sense of intimacy with your surroundings. Positioned to maximize their views, each custom-built canvas tent is en suite with a queen-sized bed and is tastefully furnished with East African flair, complete with Arabian lanterns adding a touch of exotic elegance.
