Sayari Camp, Serengeti
Besides the herds, there’s a healthy population of predators, including lions and leopards. When the European migrant birds arrive, the number of bird species swells to 500, many of which can be spotted on game drives or walking safaris.
Overlooking the golden plains, our 15 bright and spacious suites have walk-in showers, al fresco tubs and verandas on which you can laze away the afternoon with a book. Sayari’s rim-flow pool is set between natural rock formations for guests to cool off in while watching elephants or zebras ambling past camp. After a dip, treat yourself to a calming massage before an afternoon game drive and sundowners around the campfire.
Regularly voted as one of the top safari escapes, Sayari offers a superior guiding experience in this beautiful wildlife region. The camp’s latest upgrade includes a plush library and information centre which incorporates a rich cultural focus on the colourful Kuria tribe who call the northern Serengeti home. Further additions include the striking Asilia Spa offering an array of treatment options, and an innovative solar-powered micro-brewery, the first of its kind in the bush. The brewery will produce four unique beers for you to enjoy as well as producing a selection of soft drinks, purifying water, and producing sparkling water for you to enjoy as well.

Well what can I say other than just amazing from start to finish. We have never had such good service, attention to detail, friendly polite professional staff who all genuinely tried to make sure our holiday was as special as possible. The food was delicious with so much choice, The safari experience was unbelievable, from the huge heard of the wildebeest crossing the river to watching the lion and leopard get their kill as well as so many other special moments. Returning after each safari to a warm welcome back from the staff. We have stayed in many 5* hotels, as well as a 5* safari in South Africa but nowhere as good as here, just spectacular from start to finish and can’t recommend Sayari Camp highly enough. A huge thank you to all the staff. - Catherine I
We've travelled in Africa a lot and stayed in many beautiful places but Sayari is definitely one of the best. It's a lovely camp with very comfortable accommodation, good wifi and delicious food but what makes Sayari so special is the staff. Goodluck and his team, including Anderson and Innocent, seem to never sleep. They are always there ready to attend to anything you might need and are incredibly warm, friendly and knowledgeable. Our guide, Baraka, was terrific and ensured we were in a great position to see a crossing, which was one of the main things we were hoping to experience on this trip. Very highly recommended. - Jo K
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Asilia safari camps on our recent trip to Tanzania. Sayari was so comfortable with excellent staff, food and accommodations. We were amazed at the things we saw with our guide, Festo. He was engaging and knowledgeable about the animals and their habitats. - Donandrj
