Sayari Camp

Nestled in the plains of the Northern Serengeti, Asilia Africa’s Sayari Camp offers travellers a destination of great adventure and restful peace.

The Great Migration

Each year, from July to November, over a million wildebeest travel through the Serengeti in The Great Migration. This journey is famed worldwide and attracts tourists from all around the globe. In the months following this event, however, the area is quiet and serene. Situated close to the Mara River, Sayari provides guests with the opportunity to enjoy all that Tanzania has to offer. Whether you want to be a part of the action, or escape the hustle and bustle, Sayari is the camp for you.

Simple and elegant

The camp comprises 15 luxury tents, one of which is a romantic honeymoon suite. Each unit offers an en-suite bathroom, a private veranda and a king-sized bed (which can be replaced with twin beds upon request). The suites’ design is simple and elegant, drawing from the surrounding landscape in its soft, earthy tones. There are two distinct mess areas in the camp, specially designed to enable maximum peace and relaxation. Each offers a lounge and picturesque indoor and outdoor dining areas.

Other shared guest facilities include a fireplace, library and stunning swimming pool which looks over the plains of the Serengeti. Meals at Sayari are an experience in themselves, made with fresh, locally produced ingredients from local farms as part of Asilia’s Taste of Serengeti initiative. Each meal offers a different treat – multiple breakfast options are available and they can be enjoyed in the camp or in the bush. Lunch takes the form of a buffet including a hearty main dish and a selection of salads and freshly baked bread – if you are embarking on a full day adventure in the plains, you can request to enjoy your lunch alfresco in the bush. Dinner offers three courses where you may choose from a selection of delicious starters, mains and desserts.

Tanzania Safari

Tanzanian wilderness

Beyond the luxury of the camp lies the incredible world of the Tanzanian wilderness. A variety of activities are offered to allow you to explore the flora and fauna however you wish. game drives are a favourite, especially in the early morning and late afternoon to observe the animals when they are most active. If you prefer some more action, you can embark on a guided bush walk through the Serengeti. If you would like to learn more about the local communities, you can embark on a visit to the Merenga village, home of the Kuria tribe. You can even collect fresh produce from the community vegetable garden, a project which is mentored by Asilia. Children do not have to miss out on the fun, with Sayari welcoming children of age five and above; in the event, you have younger children, the camp staff will work with you to try and ensure that you are able to enjoy the family holiday you are hoping for.

Whether you are searching for adventure or serenity, you are sure to find it at Sayari.
