Alex Walker's Serian is more like one's own private camp. The owner hosted camp's hospitality is fantastic, food exquisite and service exceptional. Being a photographer their guides are very experienced and knowledgeable. The Mara North Conservancy offers peace and quite for optimum wildlife viewing away from the mad rush of 8-10 vehicles of the inner Reserve. A definite for any... More

Waking with a view across the River watching Hippos bathing was the first sight upon rising, There is nothing like creeping quietly through the long grasses with a picnic feast and driving through the Mara to watch the young with their mothers before the day began, and the hot sun arrives. Seeing elephants, using their tusks to push the trees... More

Have been to the Mara 3 times, the last 2 at Serian which was recommended by friends at work. Whether you want to see the animals or relax by the river, this is the place to be. Each time, our host was great and made it feel like it was our own private camp. One price includes safari, park entrance... More

I have stayed at Serian twice now, once with family and once with friends. On both occasions the hospitality was fantastic, food exquisite and service exceptional. The camp is stunning, with views over the escarpment, and we were lucky enough to see both cheetah and leopard within half a mile of our tent! I had initially been concerned that Serian... More

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.
