Sayari Camp is situated in the remote northern part of the Serengeti close to the Mara River, overlooking the Masai Mara beyond. Throughout the year, this area has an excellent population of cats, elephant, buffalo, and plains wildlife, as well as plentiful crocodile and hippo in the Mara River.
Accommodation & Facilities
Sayari Camp consists of 14 spacious luxury tents and one two bedroomed family tent raised on wooden platforms and split into two wings, one with nine tents and the other with six tents, to retain the intimacy of a small scale camp. The tents are equipped with contemporary, comfortable furniture, an en-suite bathroom with running water, a flush loo and a free standing bath. The verandah, bed and bath in each tent offer panoramic views over the Serengeti. Each wing has its own lounge and dining area, and there is a central library and information centre, and a spa. The camp also has a new bar with a solar-powered micro-brewery, and a lovely pool shared by both sections of the camp.
In addition there are two tented retreats. Each has two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and can sleep up to four adults and two children. There is a central lounge and fire pit area as well as a dedicated host, a chef, a guide and a vehicle for each retreat. The two retreats share a pool, which is reserved for retreat guests only.
Wildlife & Activities
Sayari Camp offers wildlife drives and short walking safaris, and the resident wildlife is excellent throughout the year. The camp is also in a fantastic location for the wildebeest migration when, from July to November, thousands of zebra and wildebeest cross the Mara River on their way north through the Serengeti into the Masai Mara and back. Walking safaris take place either in early morning or late afternoon. When the migration has left for the southern plains, the area offers a wonderful private concession-like experience, with very few other visitors.
