Situated close to the Mara River, Sayari is a tented camp overlooking the vast open plains of the Serengeti, and is ideal for those who want to be close to the migration in the north but are after a more luxurious experience.
The term 'tented camp' is used loosely here, as Sayari is a far cry from the canvas structures of other camps in the area, including its sister camp Olakira, a mobile camp that moves with the migration. The 15 en-suite tents do have canvas walls, but that is where the similarity ends. They have hard floors and private decking, and each tent has a walk in shower and bath with views of the Serengeti. The interiors are fresh and contemporary, with a touch of oriental influence, and yet retain their authentic safari feel.
Guests can eat together in the dining tent or out in the bush upon request, and facilities include a plunge pool and decked area perfect for lazy afternoons.
The nearby Mara River offers the most exciting and chaotic views of the migratory river crossings, and even out of migration season the grassy savannah is home to a huge variety of game. Sayari has a host of very knowledgeable and professional guides to take guests on games drives and walking safaris, or cultural visits to local Kuria tribes. There are also over 500 different species of birdlife.
The pool is perfectly placed for spying on the savannah game.
