GUIDE ON SAYARI CAMP (ASILIA AFRICA) IN SERENGETI
Navigation Tip - Go Directly To Prices, Reviews, Map, Photos, Video & Room Rate Guide For Sayari Camp
Sayari Camp is a most prestigious tented accommodation set in the north of Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. Amid grass plains close to the border of the Maasai Mara in Kenya, teeming with lions, elephants, giraffes, jackals, hyenas and ungulates of all descriptions, it offers superlative wilderness access for a safari in Tanzania, close by the Mara River, populated with hippos and crocodiles. This is the site of dramatic river crossings during the annual Great Migration of over a million wildebeests and zebras, rated as the eighth Natural Wonder of the World.
Sayari Camp preserves its privacy in strategic isolation, best accessible by air to a strip fifteen minutes away by a 4x4 vehicle or arrive from your Northern Tanzania road circuit safari. Photographers and zoologists consistently visit this unspoiled wilderness corner for safari holidays in Africa. The area was first opened up in 2005 due to the conservation policy of this outstanding Asilia camp, which has won the World Travel Award for Tanzania’s Leading Tented Safari Camp.
Seasoned AfricanMecca travelers argue that despite riveting game-viewing when herds gather in the Lamai Wedge and the Mara River areas for an unscripted life and death drama as massed millions of gnu forge across the river, it is even more rewarding to experience a Sayari Camp safari during the calm following the departure of migratory hordes. From December to March is the “Connoisseur’s Season” when the atmosphere is incredibly relaxing, undisturbed by many other visitors and with plenty of opportunities for fantastic wildlife photo shots.
Accommodation At Sayari CampUndeniably luxurious accommodation consists of 15 decked canvas suites with turreted roofs to mimic Turner Hill, which dominates the northern horizon. Suites are floored with mahogany and raised on stilts in an authentic rectangular housed fashion, to deter unwanted visitors and catch every breath of air. An extensive private deck with sunbeds presents breath-taking views of rolling Serengeti plains. Inside, rooms are spacious, well-ventilated and elegant.
The decor might be described as Zen Japanese with African roots. Large rooms ensure relaxation and tranquility on your Tanzania safari vacation with AfricanMecca. Separated by floor to ceiling translucent screens, they are furnished with elegant simplicity in bamboo. Earth shades complement the terrain beyond the windows, bringing a feeling of outdoors in and encouraging the impression of oneness with a timeless landscape. In a superbly appointed lounge, there is comfortable seating and a dining area which repeats the restful color theme of stone, earth, wood and sun-dried grass.
Beautiful ceramics give aesthetic satisfaction, whilst peace of mind is assured by a lockable room safe. King-size beds with fine linen command panoramic views from a bedroom large enough to dance. In the bathroom, there is a roomy shower, large, soft towels, complimentary bathrobes, toiletries and bottled water.
A free-standing oval bath is large enough to share. Triple suites are available for families. Safari honeymooner guests in Tanzania could enjoy the full wilderness experience of a Serengeti trip from the comfort of their own quarters. Exemplary laundry and house-keeping services are available, with battery charging facilities and both solar and generator power.
Safari At Sayari CampThe main reason anyone chooses to safari in Serengeti while staying at Sayari Camp is to enjoy the unique experience of being alone in an untouched wilderness, up close and part of the throbbing life of the Serengeti Plains. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic safari guides share their expertise, seeking out exactly the opportunities you dreamed of when you planned your Tanzania wildlife safari with AfricanMecca.
Whether you prefer the exhilaration of the Great Migration with its pouring millions of ungulates, or the luxury of solitude in a quieter season, you will rely on your guide and your 4 x 4 all-terrain vehicle. Game viewing is best in the cool early morning, the time to spot the Big Five; elephant in the long grass, lion prowling on the veld, black rhino and buffalo blundering through riverine forest and leopard stretched on the branches of acacia trees.
You will also see giraffe and many kinds of antelopes, cheetahs, jackals and hyenas and hundreds of amazing birds. Swim at lunch-time in the camp pool before another afternoon drive to find emerging nocturnal predators, leopard and smaller cats, as well as such extraordinary rare fauna as the wide-eyed bush baby and scaly pangolin.
Guided bush walks are also an option for closer photo opportunities of flora, insects and more intimate connection with the wild with prospects to sight footprints, smells of the bush and sounds of a close or far away distance. On your tour of Tanzania, you will balance between two worlds, discovering the natural equilibrium between humans and their surroundings best sampled by the Maasai. You may well realize that you have found the meaning of life itself.
Dining At Sayari CampNothing is too much trouble for a pampered guest, from the moment you are greeted on arrival with cooling towels to refreshing drinks. You may take your meals in camp from an international and local East African menu, including English or Continental breakfasts, cold platters, delicate soups, crisp salads, tasty roasts and grills and exquisite desserts, with afternoon tea to follow your post-prandial siesta and pre-dinner drinks and snacks served around a campfire outside the dining room.
First class food is all you could expect from an acclaimed luxury tented accommodation with world-class chefs. Ingredients are locally sourced, fresh and exquisitely prepared. Vegetarian and special diets are delicious and original. Take advantage of fantastic personal service including preparation of packed meals to take on a full day game viewing trip, meals outdoors in selected sites of interest, cooked bush breakfasts and lunches to dinners served around campfires, or bush bars where you can sip sundowner cocktails as the sun sinks in scarlet and orange splendor and stars appear in the sudden velvet night.
Teas and coffees are Tanzania’s best. Fine wines are sourced worldwide. A varied choice of beers, juices, tisanes and cordials is also available. Late night conversation thrives round a communal dinner table where camp hosts and staff entertain AfricanMecca guests with the gentle familiarity of old friends in a delightful dining room, looking out over a stone-edged infinity pool towards the Mara River, across grasslands shining silver under an African safari moon.
