Olakira in the New York Times

Here are some of writer Alida Becker’s thoughts on Olakira; “Olakira also moves with the migration, pitching its nine canvas guest tents near the Tanzania-Kenya border during the dry season, then following the herds back to the southern Serengeti grasslands when it’s time for the wildebeests to give birth to their calves. Although the camp’s goal, as its literature suggests, is “to leave nothing behind but footprints”, that doesn’t involve enormous sacrifices for visitors. Our tent, equipped with the now-familiar bucket shower, was big enough for a double bed, camp chairs and a cot for napping and reading, and a sink and eco-toilet. What amped the accommodations up to five-star status was the view over the river, as striking in the early morning as it was at dusk, when the sound of the rushing water was joined by the roar of a marauding lion.’’
