We just returned from our first trip to Tanzania and were lucky enough to stay at Alex Walker's Serian North. We were at the camp for 3 nights, which was a lovely amount of time to stay. We booked our trip through African Travel Resource and they did a fantastic job from start to finish-- the entire journey was seamless.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights for the first part of our honeymoon. It says they are a mobile camp. They move once or twice a year from the north to the south of the Serengeti in the direction the herds go. This does not mean they pack up and move each month as the animals move to be close... More

There's really nothing to improve on. The accommodations are terrific. The food and the staff couldn't be better, and the setting is amazing. What really sets it apart from other locations is the quantity and quality of the wildlife. Nowhere else have we seen so many animals! It's my #1 recommendation to anyone looking to take a trip.

Almost 12 months since our most amazing experience in 35 days in Africa. Everywhere we went was amazing. Each location and experience was something special and it isn't fair to single out one place. However being at Alex Walkers when the mega herds were there was something we will never forget. The hospitality and friendship of all at the camp... More

Finally, after two months, adding my voice to the chorus of high, higher, highest praise for the Alex Walker camps we stayed at -- Serengeti South and Kusini. Why? Superior standards in all regards delivered in a relaxed atmosphere. But not sloppy; there is a well-oiled machine at work behind all that we received -- before dinner drinks by a... More

Spent four nights here for our honeymoon back in February. Had such an incredible experience and could not imagine ever going back to the Serengeti and not staying here. All of the staff was incredibly friendly and made us feel so welcome. James ran the camp and he did such a fantastic job taking care of our every need. My... More

We stayed at Alex Walker's Serian mobile camp. It was a true safari experience where guests are subject to limited water supply, i.e, bucket showers. Additionally, phones have weak receptions on the plain with no wifi available. Highlights: Each guest were assigned with private guide and spotter. Off road game driving, walking safari, and extremely friendly owner and management where... More

My wife and I finished our last 4 days of 10 in Africa at Alex Walker's camps. Because of the drought, the Wildebeest migration already was headed north from where our original camp was. Alex knew we really wanted to see this and suggested we move to another of his mobile camps north of where we were (at no additional... More

My husband and I had the honor of visiting both of Alex Walker's Tanzanian camps in the South West part of the Serengeti. What a pleasure to be there while the Wildebeest were all around us, even at night we could hear them calling to each other. They were birthing while we were there, as the rains had just barely...

Four nights here established a standard by which we will henceforth judge other safari camps. A wonderful mix of unpretentious comfort and harmonious involvement in the environment. But the crowning glory is the presence of Alex Walker, evident in the way things are done, large and small, including the walking safari he led and the dinners at the communal table... More
