Sayari Camp (formerly known as Sayari Mara Camp) is a luxurious permanent camp situated in the far north of the Serengeti National Park. The undulating bush around is bisected by the Mara River and home to permanent game all year round. This part of the Serengeti is also a great place to witness the great migration: it’s within the Serengeti National Park and is as remote as possible from any populated areas.
Our view of Sayari Camp
Our consistent experience has been that Sayari is a very well run camp, with high levels of service and great food. Its biggest draw is its location: perfect for seeing the migration. Our only negative comment is that the sheer luxury of Sayari Camp does mean that it’s lost some of its original ‘wilderness feel’ which it used to have, and that its sister-camps still enjoy. We have also noticed more recently that this northern stretch of the Serengeti National Park is no longer as remote and quiet as it used to be. There are far more camps now in this area, which means there are quite a few more vehicles here – especially during the migration months. Having said this, what isn’t as well known is that Sayari is a great safari camp when the migration is not here; its resident game is good and there are less people and vehicles in the area.
