I arrived at Serian Camp on 4th August having driven there with Jordan and Makela from Nkorombo Camp which is Serian's mobile camp on the banks of the Mara river in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. I could not fault this wonderful place from the moment I arrived and was warmly greeted by Roisin, the Manager and William and Simon.... More

Cannot say enough about property, especially Roshi, the host. Luxury tented camp- could hear lions roar at night- made our safari. Food is divine, they wait on your hand and foot, and anticipate every need. Location is gorgeous with active hippos on river. You can actually fish with the hippos after enjoying a lunch in the treehouse. Loved this place!!!

I am currently working for a year in Nairobi for a medical NGO. Subsequently I have had the time to review many different safari opportunities within Kenya and talk to many who have gone to the different parks within this beautiful country. The overwhelming majority of responses from Kenyans on where to go on a holiday safari is very simple,... More

We recently spent some time at Serian and their mobile camp in the Maasai Mara. What a delight. We were amazed that Serian could improve on an already wonderful setting, but that is exactly what we found. Wonderful staff, management, and tents - the Mara river rolling past and African at its finest! The perfect place to be in Kenya.

We spent 2 nights at Serian Camp as part of a safari round trip and enjoyed it very much. Service, food, location and staff were all perfect as one could expect from a high class camp like this. What we felt truly was wonderful were our guides (Sam and Bajila) and also the opportunity to do great walks in the... More

Great camp, great game, great food and great staff. The team running the camp are great fun and nothing was too much trouble for them. My wife and I stayed 4 nights at this small camp the first week of March 2013 and we had a superb time. Uncertainty surrounding the local elections in combination with low season meant we... More

Serian Camp Maasai Mara/Kenya I had forgotten to ask what "Serian" (the name of the Serian Camp in the Maasai Mara) actually means. For me personally, the name of Alex Walker's camp on the Mara River represents one of the most beautiful and impressive trips I have ever embarked on. The camp standards are so high and service, cleanliness, food... More

I recently spent 12 days at the Serian Camp on the Mara River in the North Mara Conservancy and I have to say that it was absolutely wonderful!

From the moment we exited the small plane to a welcoming committee of Dominick (our guide), Dennis (our driver), and a rather large group of giraffes, we knew we were in a special place with terrific people. We started the first game drive immediately-and the love affair began-each and every drive (two a day) brought something new and exciting. Just... More

Very warm welcome from Roshin the manager. Very nice furnishment in the tents. Outstanding food. Excellent guide Dominic. I was here as a travelagent and have been visiting lodges throughout whole East- en Southern Africa and I can say is was perfect all over.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A traditional bush camp most suited to adventurous outdoors characters in search of a real experience. "Serian" means peaceful, calm or serene in the Maa language. An artists haven and one of the most picturesque sites in the Mara. Located in the heart of the Mara North Conservancy "Serian" operates throughout the year. A traditional tented camp focusing on quality game viewing and providing clients access to some of the very best game viewing in Africa. The migration of wildebeest occurs from June through October and sometimes November, quickly followed by the birthing season from October to March. April May & June offer opportunities for ornithologists and those who enjoy the solitude of the quiet season. Serian guarantees exclusive use of vehicle at no extra cost. This is the key to a quality experience and not a shared compromise. The Nest is a tree house perfect for a picnic after a bush walk in the private conservancy, where guests can also spend the night in the two oval double beds and watch nocturnal game on the infra-red cameras! ... more   less
