Located in the unexplored and uncrowded northern Serengeti, Sayari Camp offers a prime safari experience in the heart of East Africa.
The classic Sayari Camp boasts fifteen tented suites, each built from canvas, sand, stone, and mahogany - blending in seemingly with the natural surroundings.
Each Luxury Tented Suite has a king-sized bed (twin beds available), en-suite bathrooms with walk-in showers and separate bathtubs that overlook the Northern Serengeti plains, as do the beautiful private verandas that extend from each suite.
Sayari has been carefully designed to offer various relaxation areas for guests to enjoy, and the camp prides itself on the personalized service it provides for guests. There are several indoor and outdoor dining areas to enjoy a sumptuous meal, a library with a cozy fireplace, and a rim-flow swimming pool that offers impressive views of the Serengeti and the abundance of wildlife that inhabit the plains.
Meals at Sayari are wholesome with the camp sourcing most of their fresh produce from local farms in Nyamakendo, Mbalibali and Merenga villages as part of Asilia’s Taste of Serengeti project.
Breakfasts can be enjoyed in camp or out in the bush and include continental or full English breakfast options. Lunches are light buffets and dinners are three-course plated meals. If you are doing a full-day safari, you have the option to enjoy your lunch in the bush.
From July to November, you can expect to see large herds of wildebeest gathering on the banks of the Mara River as they brave up to cross the crocodile-infested river as they journey north. The crossings are not without action as hungry predators wait on the other side for an opportunity to strike. This spectacle is dramatic as the wildebeest thunder across in their millions - all of which is seen at Sayari Camp.
During the months of December and March, the migration moves south leaving the Northern Serengeti which then offers exclusivity and large herds of plains game which are closely followed by lion and cheetah that reside in the area. Leopards tend to hang back in the lush riverine forest, whilst sightings of elephant and rhino are common. The arrival of the European migrant birds increases the bird population to over 500 species, making this a truly spectacular time to visit if you are a keen birder.
Activities offered at the camp include twice daily open vehicle game drives, bush walks, bush breakfasts, picnics, star-lit dinners, cultural & community visits and hot air ballooning.

"The camp manager did everything possible for us to experience two Migration river crossings and then with that experience in the bag, our guide could focus on the other animals we love to see and we saw a rhino mum and child, a leopard climbing a tree, lions on the hunt ... and even had some time for a midday nap and some time in the refreshing pool. Where else can you do that ! The staff in the camp are super attentive and sincerely friendly. Food and wine are good, started off with drinks and snacks around the bush TV: the camp fire. With all the above we didn't spend much time in our tent, if you should call them tent because with wooden floors, a big deck, comfortable big bed, lots of electrical lights and a huge bathroom with lots of solar heated hot water, this felt like a hotel suite. It even had wifi. All in all a perfect holiday and we'll be back with our daughter next time so she can also experience what might be the best safari experience Tanzania has to offer."

"We found all aspects of communication to be very clear. Had a wonderful experience living in the bush camp, were very well looked after with excellent meals and all needs catered to. The experience was everything we had hoped for and more. Our guides/rangers were lovely people, very knowledgeable in spoor and animal and bird life in the area, and spared no effort in making our stay interesting and most enjoyable!"
"We stayed at Sayari Camp as our last stop and our experience was really great, we wanted to end our time in Tanzania with a luxury camp and to witness the Great Migration. The camp and the tents are beautiful and definitely the nicest of the Asilia camps that we stayed at. The location is perfect, real close to the Mara River which provided us with fantastic sightings on a daily basis."
