Our family with 3 daughters ages 12,14 and 17 just got back from Sayari and I can't say enough positive things about this place. First of all the staff is beyond wonderful. They are always there to help, welcome you every time you come back for a ride and to make sure you are completely comfortable and well fed!!! They... More

Warm doesn't begin to adequately describe the way we were treated by EVERYBODY at Sayari. This was our fourth and final Asilia camp on our recent vacation. If I don't say it's the best of all of them it's because the overall quality of all the Asilia Camps blew us away. The accommodations makes this feel like a luxury hotel... More

We stayed at the Sayari for 3 nights in June 2015...just coming off the heels of a 3 day stay at Ecoscience in Tarangire. The room was fine, the staff helpful (but in need of more training), and the food was ok. The value is the most dubious piece for me as we paid the most during our 10 day... More

From the moment we arrived until our departure our experience was 5 star! The lodge is beautifully maintained, the tents are comfortable and spacious. The manager and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We enjoyed the evening camp fire and communal dinners. Our guide, Oreti, was outstanding! His knowledge of the animals and their behaviors... More

The staff, facilities and overall experience at this camp was phenomenal. By their nature excursions like a safari have to be all-inclusive. This puts a lot of pressure on the staff to deliver. Sayari Camp did an outstanding job of delivering what will likely be a once in a lifetime experience. Our cabin/tent was comfortable and provided a good amount... More

We felt that this was the pinnacle of our two week Tanzania experience. Seeing the migration was awesome, unforgettable, everything we hoped it would be. Our guide, Albert, was fantastic, and we were very happy we did a private guide here. He moved heaven and earth and drove like a demon to show us amazing things. We saw river crossings... More

Sayari was spectacular in every way. Our entire experience there was brilliant - the manager Julie is South African so we had loads in common and had great fun with her (she also went out of her way to make us feel special and at home, she even arranged for us both to get a massage on Sayari and on...

Sayari Lodge is simply the premier safari destination in the Serengeti. Forget the smelly "must-see" wildebeests that are in the south during February. That's the perfect time to hit the northern Serengeti, and visit Sayari. Sayari is a permanent lodge so is far better quality than those temporary tented safaris (no matter how good the pictures of those tents look).... More

We were so pleased that Expert Africa recommended us to stay at this camp in the Northern Serengeti as a fitting conclusion to our 10 night Tanzanian safari under canvas. It was indeed the highlight of the trip. The camp is stunning, in a great wilderness location and the five star tents with running hot water and glass windows and... More

Sayari Camp in the Northern Serengeti was an amazing place with beautiful grounds and better yet, the most caring and thoughtful hosts: Kathy and Ross. Both of them went out of their way to make sure all the guests were comfortable and engaged at all times... and of course, the early morning wake up calls, accompanied by hand delivered coffee,...
