I cannot recommend Sayari enough! We went to see the wildebeest migration which was breathtaking. All of our guides were incredibly knowledgable and friendly, they ensured that we always had the best possible view at all wildlife sightings and really made us feel cared for. The staff were incredibly attentive and caring and the accommodations were beautiful.

Our honeymoon /family tent was a nice surprise for us. Everything was beautiful and the outdoor shower was relaxing. The staff was very attentive and friendly. They surprised us several times with the unexpected! Charles, Yahaya, Eric and Adam treated us royally. Barack, the manager tried to assist us when our flight home was unexpectedly cancelled. We appreciated the compassion and care. The chef, Hassani created amazing dishes and shared some of his recipes. I look forward to making them. Adam showed his expertise and we saw over 100,000 wildabeest cross the Mara River! We highly recommend this glamping experience! 😊

Everything about Sayari was superb. The staff was world class. The accommodations were beautiful. Could not have asked for anything better. I would love to single out a few of the staff, but every single person was exceptionally professional and truly seemed to love working there. Some went out of their way to have personal conversations which added greatly to the experience.

Hires locally and is environmentally conscious. Everything is included and thoughtfully planned. Can't recommend enough. Travelled with two dear friends and made memories that will last a lifetime. I hope to return again.

The staff at Sayari are outstanding, everyone contributed to making our safari experience the best. Great food, cocktails and views. 🦒 Accommodation was top notch and the morning wake up coffee along with hot water bottles to keep us warm on our early game drives were a treat. Special shout outs to Emmy and William

The Sayari Camp is situated in the perfect location to experience the Wildebeest crossing the Mara River. It is a beautiful lodge and we were treated like kings. All the staff especially Charles, our guide, were outstanding, so friendly, attentive and dedicated to service. We couldn’t have asked for a better Safari experience. Charles worked hard to ensure we saw and experienced everything the area had to offer. Seeing 4 Wildebeest crossings was incredible and an experience we won’t forget. The lobby, dining, bar and pool area has been recently renovated and is stunning. The guest cabins although needing a bit of an upgrade were still private, comfortable and wonderful with beautiful views and deck and a soaker tub and outdoor shower. From bush breakfasts, Safari lunches and dinner, the food was absolutely delicious with incredible variety everyday. Thank you to all the staff for making our Safari experience so fun, perfect and memorable. We are confident the Sayari Camp will not disappoint.

Sayari Camp was our third out of four stops in Tanzania for a family trip this past month, and was definitely the highlight! The photos do not do it justice - the vastness of the Serengeti and the overall warmth of the atmosphere is apparent from the moment you arrive at camp. The staff is truly unforgettable and makes an effort to welcome you into the community - sharing stories around the fire in the evenings and having an opportunity to have dinner with our guide, William, was incredible and made a huge impact on the overall stay. We were there for an anniversary trip and the surprises planned by the team were so thoughtful and appreciated. The rooms were great and extremely comfortable - the outdoor shower overlooking the Serengeti while wildebeest and zebras were passing through was an awesome experience. The food was also delicious and we felt very safe traveling with food allergies. We also had an opportunity to spend an afternoon by the pool in between drives, which was very relaxing given the intimate nature of the camp. We were there for the Great Migration and were lucky enough to see 3 crossings across the Mara river - you have to be patient (or lucky!) to do so but we learned so much along the way that even without the sightings it would have been worth it. Shout-out to Frank, William, Charles and the entire team - we can't wait to see you again! Asante sana, Sayari Camp!

Just returned from a visit to the Asilia Sayari camp in the Northern Serengeti. Had an amazing time. The accommodations and food were impeccable, but the staff was outstanding. Hats off to Eric for his incredible leadership and attentiveness. His entire team was superb..thx Olive and Frederick. The game drives were great. We saw so many animals, even endangered species. The driver was really knowledgeable. Definitely well worth the visit and I definitely would highly recommend this camp.

The camp tent is unbelievably conformable with amenities including a bar and luxury linens. In the evening, you can sit outside on your private porch and watch Thompson gazelles and zebras. The staff welcomes special dining requests and will help make the trip memorable. Our last morning, we had coffee by the fire pit to watch the sun rise!

I visited Tanzania this summer for the first time, booking a number of experiences at Kilimanjaro, Manyara, Ngorogoro, and Serengeti with Nature Discovery and National Geographic. The final 2 nights were spent at Sayari Camp (booked via National Geographic), which not only represented the BEST part of this trip but also the best place I've stayed in the world (unseating previously held titles in Patagonia/Chile and Lofoten/Norway). Across the board, Sayari and the experiences in the more remote Northern Serengeti were spectacular (the Southern Serengeti was far more crowded, the lodges huge and busy - hundreds of people). The Northern Serengeti was the least crowded area we visited - it was just us (about 22 people) staying at the lodge. The food /beverage and dining experience was amazing. The staff were all exceptional, friendly, and made extra-special efforts to celebrate several special occasions for clients. The rooms were jaw-dropping in terms of beds, bath, outdoor shower, decking - and that huge view (all the way into Kenya across the plains). We went during the Great Migration and witnessed 2 huge wildebeest crossings of the Mara that were mind-blowing. I did the add-on sunrise balloon safari, which was magnificent. And I finally saw cheetahs, after an epic rainstorm.
