We spent the first three nights of our honeymoon at Ngare Serian in February. It was our first time on safari, and we didn't quite know what to expect. We have since worked out that it probably couldn't get any better than this! We were met at the airstrip by our driver and guide - Sam and Bajilla - who... More

My review is very overdue & is written with apologies to acting manager Tania, who I told that I would write it as soon as we returned home (3 months ago!). This is an exclusive wilderness camp located on a sheltered section of the Mara River. The 4 canvas & hardwood tents are set on hardwood decks, very privately located,... More

5 star treatment from start to finish. Stayed here for a couple of nights (Dec 2013) ... wish I could have stayed here for a couple of weeks! We were met at the airstrip by James, our guide and spotter for our time at Ngare Serian, who was faultless from the start - buffalo, zebra, giraffe, wilderbeast to name a... More

We stayed 2 nights at Ngare Serian and EVERYTHING was perfect. We were met at the airstrip and immediately had a small gamedrive on our way to the camp. What a start! The next wilderness experience was walking over the narrow hanging bridge which made us feel "out in the bush". The tents were awesome - so nice, comfortable and... More

My father and I recently stayed for 4 nights and I am struggling to find words to describe how wonderful I found the whole experience. The "camp" was stunning and luxurious, the food constant and sublime and most special, the staff were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. Don't be put off by the swing bridge to access, it is fun... More

Having been to many safari camps over the years, I can thoroughly recommend this camp in the Massai Mara area. With only 4 tented units , this camp offers a personalized service, including each couple having their own vehicle for game drives. My daughter and I stayed in the recently rebuilt unit 3, located immediately adjacent to the Mara River.... More

In a 16 day tour of incredible properties and amazing experiences in Kenya and Tanzania this property stood out as by far the best and I would recommend it to any and all as a MUST VISIT. The team of Steve and Denis were incredibly guides and the host couple were warm and charming. The location is stunning, the rooms... More

The second of our 3-stop Kenya safari tour, Ngare Sarian was absolutely fantastic!!! Easy flight in and the safari starts right at the airstrip. We saw hundreds of animals on our way to the camp. We stayed at the furthest tent from the dangling bridge. It literally right in front of the hippos' hangout. It was so fun (and noisy)... More

After a 4months stay in Kisumu at lake Victoria, doing some social work, we decided to end our stay in Kenya with a couple of days at Masai Mara. Amongst the many offers for lodges and camps in this region we decided, after looking at the website (www.serian.net) to book 5 days at Ngare Serian Lodge which is located directly... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Ngare Serian (meaning peaceful, serene, calm river) adjoining Serian, though on the opposite bank of the Mara River. Boisterous rapids envelop each marquee in its own private cocoon, bathtubs on raised decks, allow you to wallow in total seclusion. Four huge traditional marquees; enormous lavish beds dominate the open fronted hardwood decks. Situated in the deep shade and encircled by hefty pods of laughing Hippo who provide palpable atmosphere. A charming deck exudes expressions of lazy days, the at ease ambience of the mess leaves one in no doubt of the abundant comfort. ... more   less
