The Northern Serengeti is heralded as one of the prime game-viewing areas in East Africa, and Sayari Camp is at the heart of the action. From July to November, great herds of wildebeest gather on the banks of the Mara River on their journey north, ready to brave the crocodile-infested waters and the hungry predators on the other side. Dramatic, exciting and chaotic game viewing awaits as the wildebeest thunder across in their millions – and the action is all but on the doorstep of Sayari Camp.
Once the migration has moved south, between December and March, the Northern Serengeti offers unrivalled exclusivity, with a mere handful of guests exploring this vast tract of wilderness – this is the ‘connoisseur’s season’, prized by safari veterans who value having Tanzania’s unspoilt wilderness to themselves. The grasslands are filled with large herds of plains game, followed by lion and cheetah ever vigilant for easy prey. Leopards lurk in the lush riverine forest, and sightings of elephant and rhino are common. The arrival of the European migrants swells the resident bird population to over 500 species, making this a truly spectacular time to visit.
Sayari Camp was designed to strike the perfect balance between luxury and immersion in the extensive Serengeti. There are 15 spacious guest tents that blend perfectly into the majestic landscape, broken into two mini-camps of 9 tents and 6 tents to keep them intimate. 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. Far away from any other sign of human life, the Sayari camp crew ensures that every guest feels at home in this remote and magical location. Sayari Camp’s talented cook offers guests a fusion of European cuisine with authentic African elements. This is considered in the top echelon of tented camps and between the stupendous location, outstanding wildlife, and amazing camp atmosphere you will have the pinnacle of the Tanzania safari experience.
