Asilia Africa has announced that three of its six Serengeti camps have received an update just in time for the 2015 season.
Sayari Camp -- the first camp in the northern Serengeti -- reopened June 1 with updated interiors, a new map room for guests to spend time in between game drives and an outpost of Asilia's new flagship safari shop, Sayari.
The eight classic tents and common areas at Dunia Camp have been lifted up onto a wooden deck, a move Asilia says gives the lodge a more permanent look and feel, plus better views of the Serengeti plains and wildlife. Upgraded décor also includes king beds, a sitting area with chase, classic bucket showers and private decks for relaxing and game viewing.
Namiri Plains, which opened one year ago in an area of the eastern Serengeti previously closed to tourism, now sports an upgraded look with king beds and a sitting area decorated with neutral patterns and fake furs. The bathrooms now have outdoor showers with views of the surrounding plains, and the separate guest area and dining tents have new furnishings, including a new bar.
