Location and transfer
Sayari Camp is located in the heart of the Northern Serengeti. Near to the Kenyan border, the camp is perfectly positioned to witness the Great Migration crossing the Mara River. From Nairobi, it is around an hour's international flight to Arusha Airport, followed by a 45-minute flight to Kogatende airstrip. The camp is twenty minutes by 4WD drive from the airstrip.
The elegant permanent tents feature en suite bathrooms with indoor showers, bath tubs and toiletries, private verandas, mosquito net, safes and Wi-Fi. There is also a complimentary laundry service available. Tents are available with either double or twin beds, while there is also the option for a triple-bedded tent and one dedicated family tent, complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a safety railing.
Alongside the friendly expert guides from Sayari Camp, board your modern open-sided safari vehicle - complete with power points and fridges to keep your drinks cool – in search of the Serengeti’s incredibly diverse wildlife. Common encounters include lion, cheetah, leopard, wildebeest, elephant, spotted hyena and Nile crocodile, while black rhino can also be glimpsed on occasion. Packed breakfasts or lunches can be prepared by the camp chefs for enjoying amid the bush, allowing for a day of uninterrupted game viewing. Alternatively, you can discover the Serengeti on foot with an experienced guide, experiencing the bush from a different perspective.
Culture & History
Alongside the wonderful wildlife of the Serengeti, the park is also home to traditional villages and tribes. From Sayari Camp, you can visit the nearby Merenga village to meet the local Kuria tribe, learning about their traditions, culture and how they live. There is also the possibility to collect fresh produce from the community gardens, that can then be whipped up for your evening meal by the Sayari chefs.
After long, exhilarating days on safari, the Asilia Spa is the perfect place to relax, unwind and refresh. A range of treatments are offered - from facials and massages, to scrubs and beauty treatments - using techniques from across the globe.
All meals and drinks are included in your stay - excluding cellar wines, premium spirits and Champagne.
Please note that children under the age of 5 years are not permitted to stay at Sayari Camp.
