This was our last stop on safari (our third camp) and first time visit to the Mara. We could not have asked for a better experience. The tent was so comfy, the food was truly fantastic ( much of which was grown in their own organic garden) the hospitality of the two camp managers ( congrats on their recent engagement!!)... More

Everything was perfect. Our four night stay was during late October after the short rains and the Mara was golf course green and full of all the animals you would expect and more. Never a moment that something was not happening We stayed in tent #6 which was perfect. Watching the hippos and crocs from the loo was magnificently Africa.... More

One cannot go wrong at Mara Serian on the river. The staff, drivers and guests were all fantastic. My friend and I wanted places and times for the best photos and our drivers knew exactly how to make that happen. The food was outstanding, the hospitality was superb, the accommodations were perfect: comfortable, spacious, hot showers, working toilets, and what... More

I am currently living in Nairobi working for an NGO, so proximity to the Masai Mara for me is luxury that most don't have. But additionally, I can easily choose from many different camps within the Mara or other parks in Kenya. But I do not. I keep returning to the main Mara and Mara North to stay with Serian... More

We stayed at 3 Serian Camps - 6 nights at Serian Serengeti, 3 at Serian Mara and 3 at Nkorombo. All three camps are wonderful with extremely friendly and efficient staffs and in great locations. Serian also has a great policy where each group of guests gets their own vehicle and guide. In some areas having your own guide is... More

We sated in the scenic Mara Serian camp for three nights in August, 2014. The staff and food were absolutely wonderful: frequently asking is there was anything else that we wanted. Our drivers were so knowledgeable and went the whole nine yards to make sure that we saw all of the big five plus a family of cheetahs and an... More

We stayed at Serian North and Nkorombo "Mobile" camp. Both were fantastic. The staff at both camps were great but Serian North were so amazing, we didn't have to ask for anything, they thought of everything and some. The food in both camps were the best I've had in Africa, absolutely gorgeous, I even had to steal one of the... More

We ended up at both Nkoromobo for a few days and also Serian main Mara camp. Nkoromobo is a delight, well thought out tents, and although it's bucket shower time, the water is hot and 'on demand' thanks to the very attentive Room attendants. The food was fab and Tanya the manager runs a happy ship. We found the position... More

We arrived at Serian Camp after being in Nairobi, Borana Lodge in Laikipia and Saruni Samburu in Samburu mid June, 2014. The Mara is very different looking than the other three locations and we relished every place with its people, scenery, culture and animals. When we touched down on our small plane, we were greeted by Dominic, our tremendous guide,... More

My husband and I spent a few days of our honeymoon at Nkorombo mobile camp followed by a few at Serian camp. The experience was unique and special, (more so for me as I'd never been on safari before, apart from a few days prior in Meru national park). The Masaai staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly and made a... More
