Overview

Sayari Camp is a permanent lodge in the Kogatende area in the extreme north of the Serengeti National Park owned by the reliable Asilia Africa stable. This pleasant camp provides excellent game viewing all year round and is a popular location to view the main migration of zebra and wildebeest river crossings (on the banks of the River Mara) during the July/October dry season.

The stylish camp has 9 large guest tents (including a honeymoon tent with a secluded outdoor bath and 4 poster bed) each has a private bathroom and are all raised up on wooden platforms with views over the distant plains. The camp is small and personable with genial hosts and a rustic communal 'L shaped' lounge area with a separate dining tent with a large wooden terrace so you can dine under the stars. There is also a small swimming pool built into the rocks and a small shop from which you can buy examples of Maasai jewellery. Activities include daytime vehicle safari, walking safari and it is very close to the main take off area for hot air ballooning. Other activities include a visit to the local village to the west of the reserve or the traditional Kuria local market.

Children over the age of 5 are welcome at Sayari camp but there is no particular provision for children (no cots or high chairs or specific activities). It is important to note that the camp is not fenced and animals can wander through camp. Whilst it is true that the wildlife tends to stay away from humans and camps, parents will need to keep a close eye on children and not allow them to wander off or play independently.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
