TravelPod Member ReviewsSayari Camp, Asilia Africa Serengeti National Park
We had been following where the migration was on Herdtracker - an online blog that follows the herd every day - and we saw that the herd would be at the Mara river while we were camping in the Serengeti. We were roughing it and camping in the public camp sites in the park. There are no public camp sites in the north though, and we wanted to fulfil a lifelong dream to see the wildebeest crossing the Mara river. I went on to Asilia Africa and found this camp, which was fortunately available. Well, we arrived to a piece of paradise! The staff were superb, going the extra mile to make sure we saw the crossing. The service was excellent and the food was great. Most importantly, (and most campers will attest to this), they did our laundry for us!! Big smiles all round and 5 stars for this very special camp.

are changing camps) and at breakfast by 7.00am with a view to being on the road
... minds. It was very dry and extremely dusty. We still saw wildebeests, zebras, hippos, lions, baboons, vervet monkeys, ostriches and cape buffaloes. The buffaloes, zebras and ostriches rolled in the dust and mud suffocating the ticks that feed off of them. The crater was more crowded than anywhere else we'd been since this is the only place in ...
... it was one of our favourite place and memorable stay of all our Safari.
The next day we visited the area around the camp, a cave with old maasai paintings, granite that sings when you hit it in different places and then we drove south to exit the park around 'Ndutu' area.
So Ndutu landscape is also very impressive. It's completely FLAT until the horizon, the grass is very short, there are no rocks, and practically NO trees whatsoever in sight. So ...
... with hundreds of fossilised bones and stone tools dating back millions of years, discovered there.
Louis Leakey and his wife, Mary, both paleoanthropologists, had spent decades excavating the area and in 1959 Mary discovered parts of a skull and the upper teeth of a type of hominid that lived 1.75 million years ago and had never been previously identified. From their research and findings, it has been determined that humans originally evolved from ...
... watching as the dopey wildebeest filed past the 2 brother cheetahs one by one, whilst the cheetahs waited for their moment. When it came, one of the brothers sped through the long grass to drag the beast down, who was then followed by his brother who helped to finish it off. Although the wildebeest didn't stop to help the friend who ws brought down, when a little one started from the path the herd split and about ...
