Asilia Sayari Camp is located in the far north of the Serengeti lying just across the border from Kenya’s Masai Mara and a stone’s throw from the famed Mara River which the migratory herds must cross to reach the grasslands of the south.
Perched in one of the prime game-viewing areas in East Africa Sayari Camp offers undisturbed views towards the Mara River as well as the famed Lamai Wedge where the herds gather at the start of the migration.
As the migration begins, hundreds of thousands of wildebeest brave the crocodile-infested waters of the Mara River to reach safety; a dramatic game-viewing experience right on the doorstep of Sayari Camp.
The months outside of the migration (December to March) can offer some of the best wildlife viewing in this corner of the Serengeti - and away from the crowds. Far from the Central Serengeti, Sayari Camp offers that rare pleasure in the Serengeti: Africa’s finest wilderness - all to yourself.
The remote and starkly beautiful landscape forms the inspiration for Sayari, with the turret-shaped roofs on each of the 15 expansive tented suites mirroring the iconic Turner Hill to the north.
Indoors, rich mahogany floors and delicate tones of sand, stone and acacia reflect the views washing in through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
En-suite bathrooms, with spacious showers and egg-shaped baths large enough for two offer similarly impressive Serengeti views.
Fine linens and safari-chic décor offset the wilderness that lies just beyond the canvas walls, with king-size beds and private verandas complete with safari chairs and table.
At the main camp a peaceful lounge and romantic dining room opens up onto a generous deck where natural rock frames the rim-flow pool overlooking game-rich plains and the distant Mara River.
Enjoy a 4 x 4 safari with the camp’s expert field guides or enjoy the Serengeti on foot; with experienced guides leading walking safaris.
While children are not allowed on walking safaris they are not forgotten - with indigenous askaris (warriors) in local attire teaching them the fine art of shooting the locally made bow-and-arrow.
Alternatively spend spend some time enjoying the camp with a good book and relax. Chill by the rim-flow pool where you can still enjoy wonderful game viewing or indulge in some 'me time' with a spa therapy.
The northern Serengeti offers outstanding birding opportunities from December to March, as hundreds of European migrants join over 300 resident species
