Sayari Camp is located within the majestic landscape of the northern Serengeti and is one of the best kept secrets of African safaris. Far from the tourist track, the area offers undisturbed exploration of the fantastic Serengeti National Park, with off-road driving still allowed in some parts. Endless rolling plains and riverine woodlands are home to lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, large herds of antelope and many, many other animals. The stunning Mara River, filled with hippos and crocodiles, cuts through this land and hosts one of the greatest spectacles nature has to offer: the dramatic wildebeest crossings of the Mara River. Between mid July and November, the Great Migration typically visits the area and crosses the Mara River back and forth in search of green grass.
Sayari is Swahili for universe or planet, capturing the vast plains and endless skies in which the camp is immersed. Sayari Camp was designed to strike the perfect balance between luxury and immersion in the extensive Serengeti. The 8 spacious guest tents blend perfectly into the majestic landscape. Each tent is beautifully designed with original and traditional cloth and furniture and has a king-size bed, en-suite bathroom and a private veranda with a comfortable couch, overlooking the Serengeti. The dining area, lounge area and campfire create a perfect bush setting, with Africa as the backdrop.
Sayari camp crew ensures that every guest feels at home in this remote location. Sayari Camp's talented cook offers guests a fusion of European cuisine with authentic African elements.The camp was chosen as one of the "Special Places" in Africa by Africa Geographic.
The remote, vast lands of the northern Serengeti offer undisturbed wildlife watching that stuns even the most experienced Africa travelers. Spectacular Mara River crossings, off-road driving and endless landscapes overflowing with animals, and no humans to be seen, are some of the specialties of this remote and wild paradise. A bush breakfast observing thousands of migrating wildebeest and zebra is a majestic and most memorable experience.
Reading, dreaming, drawing, painting, writing and simply contemplating are just some of the activities that Sayari Camp invites you to partake in when in camp. Life just might appear in a different light when you return home after a stay in this enchanted area.
April-May is very wet due to the long rains. Short/grass rains occur in Nov & expect some rain in Dec, which is particular to the Serengeti Maasai Mara eco system.
