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.

The wildebeest is also called a gnu and is a member of the antelope family. There is no other antelope like the wildebeest which looks as if assembled from spare parts. The front of the animal looks like an ox, the hindquarters look like antelope, ...
... Fully satisfied with our viewing day we headed back to the room to pack.
OAT had a good bye party for us with drinks and snacks. The guides all told us how great we were and we all told them how great they were. It really has been a wonderful trip. I'm already thinking about when I can come back to Africa. We are leaving with a love of the land and the people.
I wish everyone could see this.
... the best thing ever and we left on a real wildlife high!
We left the crater and headed out back to Snake Park. On the way we stopped at a Tanzanite shop which was cool. Tanzanite is a bluey purpley stone only found in Tanzania and is rarer than diamonds. We arrived at Snake Park in time for Pete and myself to visit the Snake sanctuary. We grabbed a beer from the bar and walked round with Roz and Mike and our guide. We saw lots of different snake species and got to hold some ...
