Osunyai Lamarkau Tarangire

04.13’02.6”S 036.13’46.2”E

Osunyai sits facing the rising sun on the edge of the wilderness zone in Tarangire National Park, affording stunning game viewing by 4WD or on foot accompanied by an armed Ranger. Night game drives are also available, as are small ‘fly camp’ overnight sleep outs for the more adventurous.

Tarangire National Park is renowned for its Elephant and Buffalo herds. Known mainly as a dry season environment, Tarangire and its river, creates the perfect environment for the plains game that need a dry season water source. During the green season when the water levels are higher, the landscape turns to a translucent green, abundant with migratory bird species and the resident Elephant and Buffalo herds. Our commitment to Tarangire is year round and has been rewarded with exceptional game viewing throughout the year.

Due to the location of Osunyai Lamarkau and the sunrise setting, the camp affords a spectacular start to each day, with a procession of wildlife meandering in front of camp. With only 16 beds and an occupancy that caters for either 2 small groups only ,or a larger group on an exclusive basis, the feel of Osunyai Lamakau is deliberately one of privacy.

Add in the location on the edge of the wilderness zone within Tarangire-far from the main circuit, Osunyai Lamarkau is, without a doubt the most remote of any accommodations within the park.

Like our other camps, Osunyai Lamarkau is only booked on an exclusive basis. 

Activities: Game Drives in 4WD vehicles, Game Walks, Night Game Drives, Star Bed Camping.

8 Twin/Double En-Suite Tents. 

Dulana Serengeti Camp

03.07’25.5”S 034.79’30.7”E

Dulana sits on the edge of ‘Hidden Valley’ a little known depression on the southern plains of the Serengeti on the edge of the off road driving area, allowing immediate access onto the short grass plains where Cheetah are abundant and Lion prides establish territory close to camp and the surrounding woodland. The Great Migration uses Hidden Valley to transit between plains and woodland, providing a cacophony of noise and excitement around camp.

Serengeti National Park is the home of The Great Migration, the largest land based movement of wild animals on the planet. Over 2 million migratory Wildebeest and Zebra flood onto the southern short grass plains during the green season, to drop their young, creating a symphony of life and death.

The camp takes advantage of the uninterrupted views across the shallow valley, where different species of game can be spotted from the comfort of the accommodation tents. The main lounge and dining tents also enjoy splendid views and are a haven of comfort for the hours of daytime rest.

The site for Dulana has been selected for its proximity to the short grass plains but more importantly, the camp has a feel of remote exclusivity, away from most other tourism in an isolated setting. Dulana activities are all about big game-predator and prey interaction with more than a little theatre thrown in, as embellishment for the adrenalin rush that is the Serengeti.

 Like its sister camp Akiba Kibwe, Dulana is only booked on an exclusive basis. 

Activities: Game Drives in 4WD vehicles

Akiba Kibwe Serengeti Camp

01.73’10.4”S 034.89’75.7”E

Akiba Kibwe with its westerly setting, epitomizes the true spirit of a romance under canvas. 

Situated in the far north of the Serengeti National Park, Akiba Kibwe is in the very heart of big game territory.

The Northern Serengeti is home to The Great Migration as it moves towards more fertile grazing grounds during the dry season. River crossings, open plains and beautiful kopje rock formations are part of this dramatic landscape, as is a plethora of different mammal and bird species.

Each accommodation tent has uninterrupted views west, sited to maximize the classic African landscape. Dining and relaxing are well taken care of in the separate tents with their billowing fabrics rippling in the African breeze. Menus are individually crafted to take in guest preferences, whilst our selection of southern African wines, beers and soft drinks, compliment the culinary experience. A full bar is always open. Sitting in the very north of the Serengeti National Park, Akiba Kibwe lies directly in the route of the migrating wildebeest and zebra as they head towards the Mara River.

 Game viewing has a completely different feel to the south with a twist of similarities that compliments both locations. The river creates an exciting backdrop and alternative wildlife haven to the surrounding short grass plains and kopje systems that dot the valleys of the north.

Like its sister camp Dulana, Akiba Kibwe is only booked on an exclusive basis. 

Activities: Game Drives in 4WD vehicles

Daytimes can be as relaxed as you wish, either on the private veranda of your room, or sitting in the quiet gardens. In the evenings, we light the camp fire and enjoy aperitifs before serving dinner on the raised open air deck.

Bird life around Olerai is prolific, and occasionally smaller mammals such as Vervet Monkeys and Dik Dik can be seen and Tree Hyrax often call from the canopy tops.

The Olerai Spa can be booked for therapeutic treatments, facials and massage, to help with travel fatigue on arrival or in preparation for the journey home.

Olerai is of course the stepping off point for a big game safari to many exquisite game rich locations anywhere in Tanzania.
