Sayari Camp

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Sayari Camp

Sayari Camp is an ultra-stylish safari camp located in the remote north of Tanzania's Serengeti National Park, close to the border with the Masai Mara.

Sayari Camp enjoys an enviable location in the less-visited northern section of the Serengeti, close to the border with Kenya's Masai Mara. Here, on the edge of the Mara River, Sayari Camp is perfectly positioned to catch the best of the annual wildebeest and zebra migration, which reaches this region between July and November.

As well as its great location, Sayari Camp also stands out for its stylish design. This is a very modern-looking camp, its centrepiece a raised structure built on wooden decking and accessed via glass doors. The interiors have been carefully appointed with polished wooden flooring and modern lounge furniture giving Sayari Camp a very contemporary feel. Those looking for a traditional bush camp might find Sayari Camp a bit too slick, but those who value their modern comforts will find much to love about Sayari. Its stylish design, combined with the remote location, gives the camp a very exclusive atmosphere.

Game-viewing from Sayari Camp is generally superb, both during and outside the migration months. Far removed from the busy southern and central Serengeti sectors, you're unlikely to see many other visitors in this region of the park. The landscape, too, is different to other regions of the Serengeti; it is less flat and more undulating. While the northern section of the park features the expansive savannah plains for which the Serengeti is famous, it also has hills and pockets of forest, making for a more varied game-viewing environment. Access to the little-visited Mara Triangle region—a wedge of land that divides the Mara River from the Kenyan border and which attracts prodigious quantities of game—ensures excellent game-viewing opportunities.

Accommodation

Sayari Camp has expanded in recent years, from eight tents to fifteen tents. This has somewhat impacted the intimate atmosphere at the camp, though not dramatically, as the newer tents form a separate wing.

Like the public areas, the tented suites at Sayari are lavishly appointed—polished floors, glass sliding doors, private verandahs, huge bathrooms with freestanding bathtubs. Decadent is the only word to describe them! While from the outside they have the appearance of classic safari tents, inside they are as comfortable as the rooms at any boutique hotel.

There is one honeymoon tent at Sayari, which is larger, and enjoys a more private location as well as an outdoor bath.

Dining

Delicious three-course meals are served each evening, either in the dining area or outside by candlelight. Meals are typically served around a communal dining table, but private dining is also offered.

Picnic lunches are prepared when out on full-day game activities. Otherwise, a light buffet lunch is served in camp.
