Sa­yari Camp

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

On the banks of the Mara River over­look­ing the rip­pling green hills of Kenya sits Sa­yari Camp, one of very few per­ma­nent lodges in this re­mote part of the Serengeti. The Great Mi­gra­tion stam­pedes through the Mara River ev­ery July, bring­ing with it thou­sands of preda­tors. But even in low sea­son, we see herds of ele­phant, a pack of hyena, a leop­ard perched el­e­gantly on a sun­baked kop­pie and—most ex­cit­ingly of all—a black rhino, whose species is on the edge of ex­tinc­tion, trot­ting across the plains with her calf. Un­like its neigh­bour­ing tented camps, Sa­yari has all the ameni­ties of a lux­ury ho­tel—big bed­rooms, baths with space for two, a re­fresh­ing pool cut into the rocks and an ex­cel­lent spa. At night, guests sit around the fire and are treated to a tra­di­tional dance by lodge work­ers from the lo­cal tribes, whose os­cil­lat­ing cries mix with the roar of nearby lion. sa­yari­camp.asil­i­
