    About Sayari Camp

    Sayari Camp originally operated as a seasonal camp on the south bank of the Mara River, migrating to the Moru Kopjes in the central Serengeti from December to March. In 2009, the decision was made to build a permanent camp in the then under-explored plains of the Northern Serengeti, and Sayari as it is today was established.

    Sayari has played a pivotal role in the long-term conservation of the northwestern Serengeti. When Sayari first opened in 2005, the area was a hot spot for local poachers: with no other means of livelihood, villagers had turned to hunting the Serengeti’s abundant wildlife to make a living. The arrival of the camp secured the long-term conservation of this area of the park and employment for the communities living on the park’s boundary. Now that tourism provides an alternative for villagers living on the borders of the national park, we’re happy to report that poaching is almost nonexistent.

    Sayari is recognised by Responsible Tourism Tanzania for integrating its working culture and daily operations into a sustainable and responsible management approach. Systems are in place to monitor and direct operations. All employees understand the triple bottom line, which forms the core of the company culture. Sayari is also recognized by Fair Trade Tourism which benchmarks responsible tourism standards across the continent.

    Sayari has been carefully designed to include two mess areas, so you can always find a tranquil, intimate spot and benefit from considerate, personal service. Each has a peaceful lounge and romantic indoor and outdoor dining areas. Framed by natural rock formations, the rim-flow swimming pool has impressive Serengeti views – it is the perfect spot to spend a lazy afternoon gazing out over the game-filled plains.

    In the evenings, retire to the warmth of the fireplace or the quiet library with a whiskey and share safari tales late into the night. After relaxing in such superb comfort in the world’s premier wildlife reserve, you’ll be rested and ready for all the adventures the next day will bring.

    Meals and Dining

    Meals at Sayari are wholesome, lovingly prepared and elegantly presented. The camp sources most of our fresh produce from local farms in Nyamakendo, Mbalibali and Merenga villages as part of Asilia’s Taste of Serengeti project.Sayari breakfasts – which can be enjoyed in camp or out in the bush – include continental or full English breakfast options. The light buffet lunch spreads include a choice of salads, freshly baked breads and warm main course. If you are doing a full-day safari, you may choose to have lunch sent out to you to enjoy alfresco in the bush. The three-course dinners are delicious, elegantly plated meals with a choice of starter, main course and dessert.
