Sayari Camp

I have been entertaining the thought of doing a safari next summer. One of the camps I have been considering is Sayari in the northern Serengeti. According to one of the operators I have been talking to, Sayari is going to be moving and adding additional tents. Does anyone know if this is true or any details? I wanted to go for the seclusion and it sounds like this may not be a good choice for that. Thanks.

See the new location map here:

Description of the new camp is here:

15 tents are a bit much for me but they have two wings with two dining tents to try and keep things intimate (9 tents in one wing + 6 tents in the other).

If you want fewer people in camp there are other options nearby (CCA Under Canvas & Nomad are the best known but there are several others) - only specialist outfitters have full listings of alternative mobile/seasonal camps.

Sayari Camp is the only permanent camp up in the Lamai wedge of the serengeti and is especially good for the migration in the Summer months
I would go there

Even with more tents, the area itself will still be pretty quiet as there aren't any other camps anywhere nearby.

I didn't love Sayari (but stayed in the old one; the new one was still being built).

Part of that was the accommodation, so that will no longer be relevant, but I also didn't warm half as much to the management team, not least because of confusion over who was in which role and responsible for what.

Another camp to consider in the northern area would be Lemala, relatively new (1+/yrs) and has received good reviews.
