Olakira Camp, Serengeti, Tanzania

Normally a safari is regarded as an intrepid adventure – a case of taking a holiday your way, far from the usual crowds. But make Olakira Camp part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Tanzania and you’ll be following the herd! Quite literally. Olakira Camp describes itself as a wanderer, following the annual migration of countless wildebeest as they plough across the Serengeti; which virtually guarantees you a front row seat as the drama unfolds.

But if you imagine that the romance of a nomadic life under canvas also means having to rough it from time to time, think again. Olakira specialises in mobile luxury.
