General Information

Olduvai Camp is a good base between January and March when the wildebeest migration is within the vicinity. However as soon as the herds have moved on the whole area becomes extremely dry, dusty and baron with very little game.

The camp is managed and run by Massai which is what gives it it’s own unique character and atmosphere. Standards at this camp are basic, but the natural warmth and hospitality of the hosts is infectious.

There are 20 small basic tents, which circumnavigate the central rock kopjes with simple and adequate furnishings. The en-suite bathroom is at the back of the tent and includes a small “bladder” shower (on request) and a chemical toilet. There is no running water so a jug and bowl for washing are provided at the front of the tent. The main dining and bar area are makuti thatched buildings set within the rocks alongside a fire pit which is a pleasant area to sit and chat with the local Maasai who tend to pass through the camp at random.


Olduvai Camp is nestled among some large rock kopjes halfway between the Ngorongoro Crater and south Serengeti, close to the famous Olduvai Gorge and its archaeological museum.
