Sayari Camp is located in northern Serengeti near the Lamai Wedge migration, a great place for off-road game driving and walking safaris.
Sayari Camp in Serengeti National Park
The Sayari Camp is located in the northern part of the Serengeti perfectly situated near the Lamai Wedge migration route and several migrations crossing points along the Mara River with frequent sightings of the herds plunging into the water. The spectacular premier wildlife reserve is known to be one of the world’s year-round finest game viewing area with the river being the territory of hippos and crocodiles. Due to limited traffic in the area, off-road game driving and walking safaris provide you an unforgettable wildlife experience. From July to November, the Mara River is used as a gathering point for the great herds of wildebeest which are closely observed by the crocodiles and hungry predators until they are ready to savage the easy prey. From December to March the northern part of the Serengeti offers utmost exclusivity where the grasslands are filled with large herds of game such as lions, cheetahs and leopards. The Camp is equipped with 15 luxury tented suites blended in an extravagant ambiance consisting of a rim-flow swimming pool, a spa, spacious private verandas and in-room bathtubs.

The Sayari Camp is run on approximately 90% solar power and emissions from fossil-fuel consumption are off-set through Carbon Tanzania. The water consumption at the camp is monitored closely with an own bore whole and the collection of rain water being the source of origin. Sewage is diverted to soak away pits and the camp has an on-request towel and line change policy to further save water and energy.
Waste is collected and separated and brought back to Arusha where it is distributed to several recipients among others those who reuse plastic and glass to create new products.
Around 30% of the staff comes directly from the surrounding villages providing employment and an alternative means of income. The staff is trained on a regular basis by in-house specialists and they can furthermore participate in online training courses. Most of the fresh produce is sourced from the surrounding villages which is contributing to the Asilia’s Taste of Serengeti project.
The Sayari Camp inaugurated the Twende Porini project which gave 90 children from adjacent communities the possibility to attend a five-day camp safari during which they learned about the importance of environment, wildlife and tourism.
