Olmara camp offers eight tents designed to merge with the eco-environment, all under canvas, and with expansive views of the wilderness ahead. Each tented suite contains a lounge cove with comfortable couches and coffee table, dressing area with handcrafted cupboards, net-draped king-size bed with bedside tables and lamps, writing desks, full-length wall mirror, and soft carpets, laid over teak floors to wander along. The suite flows into an ensuite shower, double hand basins, and a flushing toilet. The camp is open, with no borders or rails, the wildlife comes and goes. Stay alert, eyes open; this is the Serengeti.
With its isolated location, the camp takes full advantage of the African night skies. Two tents have been designed as ‘star domes’; large open-rooftops where you may comfortably recline on large cushions and fall asleep beneath a natural planetarium. The evenings are beautiful with the borderless flow of clarity from the glowing moon to glittering stars, flickering planets, and a swish of the milky way: the vast, seemingly emptiness beyond stretched out for infinity; glorious and mesmerizing.
To the sound of the early dawn choir, the cap wakes for another day for discovery, the Serengeti beckons for another day of exploration and adventure.
As for activities, Olmara offers game drives, walking safaris, and hot air balloon rides. Game drives will take place twice daily, over the savanna of Soit le Motonyi and close to the acacia woodlands that border the rolling plains. Wildlife you can expect to see here includes all the big cats – lion, leopard, and cheetah – in addition to Serval, elephant, giraffe, zebra, warthog, and hyena.
Walking safaris will be available for travelers aged 12 years and over, conducted in a beautiful and remote river valley. Our walks aim to bring you close to all things, large the small, hippo pods in river pools, fig encrusted kopjes, or the life of the insects.
