Sayari Camp: Interesting Facts
Sayari Camp: In depth
Sayari is located in the Kogatende area in the north of the Serengeti. It’s about a 10 minute drive from the airstrip to camp and a 2 hour flight from Arusha. The area is spectacularly beautiful. You really do get the feeling that it must have been the region that inspired Disney’s Lion King! The rolling hills of the Lamai Wedge are lush green and teeming with game. The landscape is occasionally interrupted by a group of towering boulders or tree that gives shade to the big cats or anything else escaping the African sun. It is an incredible landscape and you can only imagine what the first explorers thought as they reached this land of such beauty and magnitude.
The camp itself offers a splendidly luxurious retirement from this golden landscape, which makes it very popular with honeymooners. The permanent tented camp and is close to the banks of the river Mara, making it a gem for the river crossings. It's an old school Serengeti safari luxury option.
The tents are particularly large and well furnished. They are raised up on wooden platforms giving them a real sense of security. They are sleek and stylish in design with the bathroom offering guests the choice between a scented bath or a shower – not many tents can boast both!

I am composing a much longer email, so this is just a quick note to let you know that our trip to Africa was marvelous!!!! Sayari was the hit of the trip, and I wish we had stayed there an extra night. I will be sending more details, but in the meantime, I wanted you to know that everything went off without a hiccup and we were delighted with your service. Take care, and many thanks for a wonderful vacation!!!!
Everything went very smoothly indeed and your suggestions were bang on in terms of Onsea, the timing between places, the Crater Lodge and Sayari. The 1.5 days of game viewing at the Crater was absolutely perfect (no need to do any more there whatsoever), and I can’t say enough about Sayari, the position its in geographically and the game viewing itself. Absolutely spectacular through and through and the staff / food were so great. As an aside, in speaking to a number of people there too, it seems like it is a great place to go outside of the peak migration time too as the area has a lot of local wildlife that stays in the area throughout the year (if you are looking for reco’s for clients in the future).
The highlight was the entire time spent in the North. Everything was terrific: the game drives, the wildebeest crossing the river, the accommodation at Sayari Camp, the hospitality of Joe, Barbara and Ken and their team, our driver (“Prim”). Even the weather was perfect (warm days and rain showers in the evenings).

Sasakwa is Singita’s Tanzania flag ship lodge: one of the most luxurious lodges in Tanzania with some of the most spectacular views in the whole Serengeti. We love the private infinity plunge pools in each room and the unbelievable stables boasting some of the very best horse back safari in Tanzania.
Serian Serengeti North is exactly what a safari camp should be. Alex knows the bush like the back of his hand and it’s this kind of knowledge that he demands from his guides and they rise to the challenge with aplomb. It is an adventurous experience with a luxurious edge that no one ever forgets. Our favourite mobile tented camp in Kogatende
Lamai Serengeti is an absolutely fantastic lodge. It is of the highest quality and probably boasts the best service in the region. It sits upon the Kogakuria Kopje, with breathtaking views down onto the Lamai wedge. It is like a breath of fresh air when compared to a lot of luxurious safari camps with its quirky style and incredible location.
