  • 15 ultraluxurious tented guest suites
  • Perfectly located to witness the annual wildebeest migration and river crossings

You should know

  • Children aged 5 years and older are warmly welcomed at Sayari Camp.
  • Sayari Camp is closed from 1st April to 31st May

The detail

The classic Sayari Camp boasts fifteen tented suites, each built from canvas, sand, stone, and mahogany - blending in seemingly with the natural surroundings.

Each Luxury Tented Suite has a king-sized bed (twin beds available), en-suite bathrooms with walk-in showers and separate bathtubs that overlook the Northern Serengeti plains, as do the beautiful private verandas that extend from each suite.

Sayari has been carefully designed to offer various relaxation areas for guests to enjoy, and the camp prides itself on the personalized service it provides for guests. There are several indoor and outdoor dining areas to enjoy a sumptuous meal, a library with a cozy fireplace, and a rim-flow swimming pool that offers impressive views of the Serengeti and the abundance of wildlife that inhabit the plains.

Meals at Sayari are wholesome with the camp sourcing most of their fresh produce from local farms in Nyamakendo, Mbalibali and Merenga villages as part of Asilia’s Taste of Serengeti project.

Breakfasts can be enjoyed in camp or out in the bush and include continental or full English breakfast options. Lunches are light buffets and dinners are three-course plated meals. If you are doing a full-day safari, you have the option to enjoy your lunch in the bush.

From July to November, you can expect to see large herds of wildebeest gathering on the banks of the Mara River as they brave up to cross the crocodile-infested river as they journey north. The crossings are not without action as hungry predators wait on the other side for an opportunity to strike. This spectacle is dramatic as the wildebeest thunder across in their millions - all of which is seen at Sayari Camp.

During the months of December and March, the migration moves south leaving the Northern Serengeti which then offers exclusivity and large herds of plains game which are closely followed by lion and cheetah that reside in the area. Leopards tend to hang back in the lush riverine forest, whilst sightings of elephant and rhino are common. The arrival of the European migrant birds increases the bird population to over 500 species, making this a truly spectacular time to visit if you are a keen birder.

Activities offered at the camp include twice daily open vehicle game drives, bush walks, bush breakfasts, picnics, star-lit dinners, cultural & community visits and hot air ballooning.

Sayari Camp is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for an exclusive safari experience.

7-nights Safari
I made a reservation for a 7-night safari trip to two specific Private Game Reserves in the Kruger National Park in South Africa, for one of the busiest months in Kruger: August. This reservation was made at the last minute. (3 days ago). A reservation that had some special features, with choices from someone who has already done (my husband and I) several safaris in other African countries. The architecture and design of the lodges are important to us on a professional level. And the Private Game Reserves had to be the best. Anja Meyer, from, started and completed the reservation process in 4 days, two of which were weekends. Very efficient, fast and understanding what we wanted for our week in the bush. We are "addicted" to safaris, wildlife, bush, landscapes, nature... and we love Africa and the Africans. We can't wait for August to arrive. Thank you!

My first experience a number of months…
My first experience a number of months back wasn't as I wanted. I picked up with Dolan a little after this to find when the best time to Safari was with the chance of seeing the "big 5" and he was so helpful, guiding me to July-September. With the cooler winter months being the better chances to see more wildlife and the big five. This lead me on to deal with Jayson. Jayson has pulled out all the stops, working past 9pm Cape Town time( 8pm London UK) to help meet my needs. I travel out on 6th July and cannot wait, Thank you Dolan and Jayson.

Sara Van Coillie has been extremely helpful in making our Namibia trip fantastic! We have emails up on emails of Sara answering all my (many) questions months and months before our trip. I've had last minute questions and requests right before and during our trip and she always responds with record time and helps us out. I feel all of our needs have been met and I couldn't be happier with Sara as our travel representative! Highly recommend her! :)

Thanks Pascal you are amazing!
From the moment we arrived in South Africa, our safari adventure was nothing short of extraordinary. Nestled in the heart of the African wilderness, we found ourselves surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of Kruger National Park, a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Our accommodation was luxurious yet seamlessly integrated into the natural environment, offering us stunning views of the savannah from the comfort of our private deck. Each day began with an exhilarating sunrise game drive, where our expert guide shared his deep knowledge and passion for the local wildlife. Witnessing the "Big Five" was an awe-inspiring experience that left us in complete awe of nature's magnificence. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made sure we felt safe while immersing ourselves in the wilderness. Evenings were equally enchanting, with sundowner drinks enjoyed against the backdrop of a fiery African sunset, followed by sumptuous dinners under the starlit sky. The cuisine was a delightful fusion of local flavors and gourmet dishes, perfectly complementing the day's adventures. The sense of community at the lodge was heartwarming. The staff were attentive, ensuring every need was met with a smile, and fellow travelers quickly became friends as we shared stories around the campfire. Our South African safari was more than just a holiday; it was a transformative journey that connected us with nature and left us with lasting memories. For anyone seeking an adventure that combines luxury, education, and unparalleled wildlife encounters, a safari in South Africa is an absolute must. We left with hearts full of gratitude and a profound appreciation for the natural world, eagerly planning our return to this magnificent land.
