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 ...
... the water, following the crowd. Thankfully, there weren't any crocs in the water because although it's all part of it, I was happy not to see it. What we did see though were hippos in the water and the wildebeest got a little too close it seems. All of a sudden, the hippos were lunging at the wildebeest and we were sure they were going to kill them. After all, hippos are pretty dangerous. We even saw a baby getting plowed over by a hippo and we thought he was done ...
... making everything green. I'm so glad we didn't have rain - we were really not prepared for that.
We discovered that another couple, Chase and Steve, were coming to Olakira as well and we introduced ourselves while we waited for Ebenezer to get the paperwork all signed. They seemed fun and I was pleased that we'd be spending the next few days with them. We eventually got on the "road" and headed to the camp. We did a short game drive on the way and saw a ...
... most exciting! In the late afternoon, we visited the hippo pool, where a large pod of hippos hangs out. It was fascinating to watch the interaction of a large group! We've seen hippos in a zoo, but you can't get a sense for their group interactions in that setting. In a large group, they communicate with loud honking calls, and once one starts, the group joins in. We also got to witness some males fighting for dominance. Much of the action was under the water, ...
