Sayari has been a favourite of ours since the day it opened, a simple little bush camp in the most beautiful part of the Serengeti. Still in the same gorgeous rolling savannah, but rebuilt and refurbished, this is now one of the most stylish options in the area.
Perfect forAlmost anyone. Sayari is one of the safest bets in the Serengeti.
In the knowFollow in the footsteps of the elephants, and avoid the noise and chaos of the wildebeest migration. Instead, travel outside migration season and have this beautiful paradise all to yourself.

Hotel Overview


The rolling open plains of the Northern Serengeti, Tanzania.

Rooms at Sayari

Sayari has fifteen of the most stylish tents in the Serengeti. There are private verandahs, bathtubs with a view, and flickering lanterns to light your deck by night.

Food and Facilities

No TV, no phone reception, and no air-conditioning. Just breathtaking views, delicious family style meals and the chance to spot elephants from the swimming pool.

Activities at Sayari

Game drives, game drives, and more game drives. There’s the odd walking safari thrown in, and massages for bodies tired of bumpy bush tracks. For kids, the Maasai askaris are more than happy to give a lesson in bow and arrow shooting or how to wear the traditional shuka.
