From the accommodations to the food to the dedicated guides, you have a real sense that meeting your needs in every way is important. Without hesitation, I would book with Sayari Camp again. Breakfast and lunch were packed for us so we could stay out all day in the Serengeti to catch a wildebeest crossing.

We stayed here for three nights in the month of July 2015. This is a permanent “tented” camp in Northern Serengeti, and recommended for those who want an ‘under the canvas’ experience with a twist of luxury in the form of uber comfy beds, running hot water, soaking tubs, patios outside your tents and a flushing toilet. You still eat... More

Sayari is a beautiful property, and Annabel and Roger work hard to exceed all your expectations. The property itself is gorgeous -- peaceful lunch on the lawn, terrific pool. Albert our guide was incredible -- he made our trip so special!

Dear Janet, What kind words you have to say about your time spent with us, thank you very much for sharing them. I have to tell you, the peaceful lunch on the lawn is now often serenaded by the grunts of the wildebeest migrating through the camp! Albert talks very fondly of you Janet and certainly enjoyed the drives he... More

What can one say when you have just had an experience of a lifetime?! Big 5 plus cheetah before lunch one day!! Kivuyou our guide was extremely professional, excellent at reading the game and put up with many of our fun loving antics.

A magical experience in every way. They call it camping and it is true that the walls and roof are canvas, but luxuries abound. Well appointed secluded "huts" with private vistas of the Serengeti bush; hot coffee wake up calls; dawn breaking open vehicle safari starts; delicious picnic meals "out n the field"; extremely knowledgable and personable guides and camp...

A beautiful camp in stunning surroundings. Large, well furnished tents with bathroom behind a Japanese screen with both shower and free standing bath with a great view of passing elephants. Great game viewing - plenty of lions, cheetahs, leopards and the start of the migration building up when we visited. The location is beautiful. Rocks, plains and the river -... More
