My wife, her 83 yo mother, my 83 yo mother and I spent a long weekend at Mara Serian in the Mara North Conservancy in early March 2015. Serian is a a boutique tented lodge with about 6 rooms/tents overlooking the Mara River. As a result the camp had lovely bird life and there was good game viewing from the... More

Having been to Serian years ago I wondered how I'd feel "going back". . It was FAR better than I had ever imagined, and continues to be one of my most favorite camps in Africa; having been on six safaris with about eighteen camps. It is going home, with Roisen and Adrian becoming family - they are such an amazing... More

What a wonderful Christmas we all spent at Serian and Nkorombo Camp in the Maasai Mara. There were 10 of us altogether and we were treated like we were the best of the best! What a Christmas, it included Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas breakfast, Christmas lunch, Christmas tea, and don't forget Christmas dinner! All the fantastic food, which really was... More

{Nkorombo should have its own separate review as its different from Serian (and Ngare) camps located in the Mara North conservancy, but i will put it here as others have until it gets it own.} This was our second stop of three Alex Walker's Serian camps. (See separate review of Ngare Serian and Alex Walker's Serian Serengeti North). This was... More

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
