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.

Well, we got back from our amazing Cape Town to Dar Es Salaam adventure, and 2 weeks later, we were planning to fly back for a quick trip north to see the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti!
I joined an online tracking blog called "herd tracker" which lets you …
Warm to hot, sunny A wonderful day of safari. First up was a lion and a lioness mating. They do this for 4 days very frequently during the day. From then on, we saw giraffe, hippo, buffalo, impala and his harem, dikdik( small antelopes), leopard, elephant , guinea fowls, crocodile, warthogs, serval cat, cheetah, hyena, topi, gazelle, rock hyrax, tree hyrax, banded mongoose, defasa water bucks, velvet monkeys and ...
... everywheres, with a few zebras. We drive a little further north up to the Kenyan border but are not allowed to cross...the two parks, Maasai Mara and Serengeti and one park for the animals...but not for humans!!!
Apart from safari, one of our other main occupations for the day is killing Tse Tse flies!!! They are all over and bite...they are mixed with the horse flies, which also bite..they are a real pain and don't seem to be impressed by our DEET sprays!!!
... huge crocodiles laying on the river bed. Apparently in dry season
crocs do not eat for 6 months!! I wouldn't want to be a wildebeest
migrating across the Grumetti river knowing that fact!! Around 3pm it
chucked it down for an hour or so, so this was our cue to head to our
first camp. We arrived at camp around 5pm to the start of an amazing
sunset. Our driver erected our tent and the cook set up our dinner
table under a shelter we shared with all the other safari ...
... another hour down the road, Oldupai Gorge, home of the earliest recorded human fossils. To get there we drove through some amazing green valleys, and a number of Massai villages. Again, I was overwhelmed by how traditional they still live.
As we got closer to Oldupai the landscape started to open up and flatten out and we started to see more and more zebra, wildebeest, Thompson gazelle, and giraffe.
