Sayari Migration Camp
Serengeti National Park
Sayari Migration Camp is a luxurious permanent camp situated in the far north of Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. The Mara River meanders from east to west through this remote region’s undulating bush, which is home to permanent, large populations of plains wildlife. This part of the Serengeti ecosystem is a spectacular area to witness the great wildebeest migration.
You will be in an area known for the best game viewing in the Serengeti. From July to November the wildebeest gather on the banks of the Mara River to brave the crocodile-infested waters. Dramatic game viewing awaits as the wildebeest thunder across in their millions. The action is all but on the doorstep of Sayari Camp, just meters from your tent.
Once the migration has moved south the Northern Serengeti offers you absolute exclusivity. Just a few guests explore this vast tract of wilderness. This is the period prized by safari veterans who value having Tanzania’s unspoiled wilderness to themselves. The grasslands are filled with large herds of plains game constantly followed by lion and cheetah. Leopards lurk in the lush riverine fores and sightings of elephant and rhino are common. The arrival of the European migrants swells the resident bird population to over 500 species.
Sayari is in a remote part of the Serengeti where the rocky hills and rolling plains make the scenery undulating and beautiful. The Serengeti’s only permanent river, the Mara, is wide and fast-flowing as it runs through this area, and is home to many crocodile and hippo.
Sayari Camp is split into two with six tents in the smaller camp to the north of the swimming pool. Nine tents are in the bigger camp on the south side. Each small camp has its own lounge and dining area with a central swimming pool.
The larger honeymoon tent has a secluded outdoor bath, four-poster bed, a huge extended deck and an uninterrupted view. Any of the tents can be made up to create family units.
