Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti is a spectacular 15 tented camp on the Mara River in the northern part of the Serengeti. Sayari Camp has 2 "wings", one with 9 tents and one with 6 tents.

 

Both wings have a separate mess and dining to ensure intimacy and personal service; the entire camp or wings of the camp can be booked exclusively. Each Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti 15 luxury guest tents are very spacious and has a comfortable king size bed (twins also possible) and a large, private veranda, overlooking the Serengeti. The en-suite bathrooms have flush toilets, a double sink, shower and beautiful bath with a view.

 

After game drives, guests overlook the Serengeti from the spectacular infinity pool or choose the privacy of their veranda, the warmth of the fire place, or the comfort of the atmospheric library, bar or lounge.

 

The suite at Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti comes equipped with personal service and a private outside bath overlooking the Serengeti plains. Triples and children are not allowed in the suite. Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti can be booked by itself as fly-in destination or can be combined with African Spice Safaris or other Serengeti camps for a deep and varied Serengeti experience.

 

This un spoilt area is a spectacular wildlife destination. The Tanzanian Mara River area is one of the greatest secrets of Africa, with large concentrations of animals year-round - like the Masai Mara on the Kenyan side of the border, but without the vehicles.

 

Due to the limited traffic in the area, off-road game-driving is possible in some of the best game-driving areas around the camp (subject to continued TANAPA approval). The Migration usually roams around in the area from mid July to November, and in this time frame lucky guests could get to see the famous Mara River crossings of wildebeest.

 

Outside the Migration season, there is still plenty to see: the area hosts many resident cats, elephants, resident zebra and wildebeest, herds of topi and lesser known animals such as the bat-eared fox. The river is the territory of hippo and crocodile year round.

 

(Open vehicle) game driving & bird watching, walking safaris in morning or afternoon with walking guide and ranger (at extra charge on FB). Walking can be done by children of 16 years and over - children below this age can only participate in walks at the discretion of the guide.

Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti

Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti is located in the remote and exclusive northern Serengeti. The stunning Sayari Camp is perfectly positioned to witness what may be the greatest wildlife spectacle on the planet: the Great Migration crossing the Mara River.

 

Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti overlooks the Serengeti plains, home to staggering wildlife, great numbers of big cats, giraffe, elephant and buck and an increasing population of rhino. During the Migration season, millions of wildebeest and zebra arrive to share the fertile land with the permanent inhabitants.

 

The combination of a superb location, luxurious facilities and an incredible wildlife experience ensures that Sayari Camp will etch itself into your memory as the standard against which you will forever judge any other safari camp.

 

Sayari is Swahili for universe or planet, capturing the vast plains and endless skies in which the camps are immersed. Sayari Camp was designed to strike the perfect balance between luxury and immersion in the extensive Serengeti.

 

Sayari Camp (Mara River)
Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti is situated at a stunning site on the Mara River, in the un spoilt and undiscovered northern part of the Serengeti National Park, one of the best kept secrets of African safaris.

 

Far from the tourist track, the area offers undisturbed exploration of the fantastic Serengeti National Park, with off-road driving still allowed in some parts. Endless rolling plains and riverine woodlands are home to lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, large herds of antelope and many, many other animals.

 

The stunning Mara River, filled with hippos and crocodiles, cuts through this land and hosts one of the greatest spectacles nature has to offer: the dramatic wildebeest crossings of the Mara River. Between mid-July and November, the Great Migration typically visits the area and crosses the Mara River back and forth in search of green grass.


Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti is intimate, original and features 15 luxury guest tents blending perfectly into the majestic Serengeti landscape. Both wings have a separate mess and dining area to ensure intimacy and personal service.

 

Each Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti tent has a king size bed (twins also available) and a large, private veranda overlooking the Serengeti. The en-suite bathrooms have flush toilets, a double sink, shower and beautiful bath with a view.

 

After game drives, guests can enjoy the infinity pool or choose the privacy of their veranda, the warmth of the fire place, or the comfort of the library, bar or lounge to relax.

 

Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti has a talented cook who offers a great fusion of authentic African and nouvelle European cuisine. The atmosphere at Sayari is very personal and intimate and the camp crew does everything to make the experience unforgettable.

 

Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti Activities & Wildlife
Game drives from Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti are unlike anything else in the Serengeti due to the exclusive location on the Mara River. Game viewing is often enjoyed without meeting many - if any - other tourists. The remote, vast lands of the northern Serengeti offer undisturbed wildlife watching that stuns even the most experienced Africa travelers.

 

Spectacular Mara River crossings, off-road driving and endless landscapes overflowing with animals, with no humans to be seen, are some of the specialties of this remote and wild paradise. A bush breakfast observing thousands of migrating wildebeest and zebra is a majestic and most memorable experience.

 

Reading, dreaming, drawing, painting, writing and simply contemplating are just some of the activities that Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti invites you to partake in when in camp. Life just might appear in a different light when you return home after a stay in this enchanted area.

 

Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti History
Sayari Camp Mara River
opened in June 2005 on the south bank of the famous Mara River in the northern Serengeti. This area has been almost untouched by tourists and even now, Sayari Camp is still the only permanent camp in the remote north-western Serengeti.

 

The reason why there are no lodges and camps in this area is because of its remoteness. Far away from the park headquarters in the central Serengeti, the land was subject to poaching in the 1990's. However, an anti-poaching campaign has since ensured the land belongs to nature and its wildlife.

 

Sayari Camp Mara River Serengeti plays an important role in the long-term conservation of the area: people from villages bordering the Serengeti are employed in the camp and income from the camp goes towards educating and providing jobs for the villagers, thereby providing an alternative livelihood to poaching.

 

There is a spectacular concentration of wildlife year-round here and it is also famous for the Great Migration. In short it is a fantastic wilderness area and the Sayari permanent camp was established there in June 2006.
