Review

Located right up on the Mara River, Sayari Mara Camp is definitely one of our favourite camps in the Serengeti and is perfect for those looking to experience the Migration herds in the July to October window, when the herds are mingling around this area. a beautiful camp, everything has been thought of, with great views, stunning rooms and swimming pool....the only problem with it these days is that it is too popular and so can be booked a year in advance!

As the above suggests, Sayari Mara Camp really is the full package. Set up in 2008 as the Lamai wedge region of the Serengeti really started to open up, Asilia, the company that owns it, drew on all of their experience in other camps such as Oliver's and Olakira, to push the boat out and build what is now their flagship camp.

Location

In the perfect location, just north of the Wogakuria Kopjes and south of the Mara River, Sayari Mara Camp is a short drive to some of the most important crossing points for the wildebeest and so, in season, this phenomenon is almost guaranteed (almost!). Another real feather in their cap is that they are almost the only camp that is allowed up in this remote region meaning that, even in the busiest season, you can spend days without seeing another vehicle.

Rooms

The rooms themselves have been cleverly designed, on wooden plinths, in a way that allows the breeze in during the heat of the day to cool them, without feeling drafty. They have been tastefully decorated with simple colours that reflect the surrounding wilderness, and used simple furniture that is elegant and robust.

Layout

The communal areas and swimming pool at Sayari Mara Camp have also been well thought out to make the most of this great region of the Serengeti, where the sky really does meet the vast open plains of East Africa. Come and stay here and you will see what we mean...a great camp!
