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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
