Stayed recently at Serian for a second time. Was without kids this time and was therefore able to take advantage of the flexibility they offer. Spent the 1st night in the main camp, 2nd in the tree house and 3rd at the mobile camp. Absolutely phenomenal experience in every respect. I've been to several other camps in the Mara but... More

I have been fortunate to have been able to stay at Serian several times. I chose Serian for the location which is outside of the Mara Reserve. I have been traveling to the Mara for many years and up until these past few years I had always stayed inside the reserve and never knew any different. When I went back... More

We had no idea what to expect when we agreed to meet up with family at Serian for a 6 night stay. Suffice it to say we were overwhelmed by the exceptional quality of our guides (made even better thanks to a private vehicle that is standard at Serian), the beauty of our surroundings, exceptional food and hospitality and the...

I just spendt 9 days @ The Serian Camp including 3 nights @ their fly camp which I enjoyed alot. The fly camp is very private & rustic with a location much closer to the action. It's true, at Serian, you with the advice of your driver/guides decide when to go on your daily game drives. The decision is totally... More

My trip to Masi Mara at Serian was amazing. The most gracious people showed me the wildlife I went for. Shareing their home and knowledge I was well guided, guarded, well fed, (the food delightful). There’s lots more to Africa but until I know any better Africa is at Serian and Kenya is a beautiful place.

This is an amazing place. The tents are very comfortable and the bathrooms are modern. I loved the sound of the hippos in the hippo pool in the Mara river just below our tent. Our guides were wonderful and we saw everything including 3 leopards. That was the one animal I wanted to photograph so badly! The food was excellent... More

Our family, 2 adults and 2 kids (13 and 11) travelled to Serian, and we all loved it here. We were a little concerned at first, since at that time I didn't see any reviews for it on TripAdvisor, but our travel agent assured us that it would be terrific. It surpassed all my hopes for it! We had originally... More

My wife and I stayed at Serian in July for five days. We are well traveled in Africa and elsewhere - Serian was outstanding. Our guide (Pious) was both highly skilled and enthusiastic, the accommodations were superb (we stayed in the smaller camp across the river, with a hippo pool in the Mara River barely 30 feet from our luxurious...

Only when you are in Serian you can really understand what Masai Mara does. No crowds, no schoolbuses with hungry gamewatchers, no any visible signs of monsters other than lions (last time saw two lionesses with 8 cobs under heavy rain). Cozy, natural and simple but very elegant camp, smiling staff, good food, excellent Masai guides and, of course, very... More
