We flew North from Kogatende, beside the Mara River in Serengeti (Tanzania), to Tarime airstrip , then transferred by vehicle to the border post in Isibania (as grotty a town, as I can recall ), then drove on to Migori (airstrip) for the final flight South to the Mara North airstrip - just setting the scene! Nice flights, but horrid... More

Hey are you looking to see the great wildebeest migration and the crossing at the Mara River? Then book a few nights at Nkorombo Serian in late August and thank me later! This is hands down THE place to be for the crossing. We saw three major crossings and one "zebra only" crossing in just two days!! As well as... More

We had a lovely very well equipped tent with a huge verandah looking over the river which was usually full of Hippo. My bathroom was an absolute dream, with the bath hewn out of a huge lump of marble. I could lie in it and look out over the bushes and trees full of colourful birds. We were so well... More

Nkorombo is a hidden gem. Tiny camp, discreetly located in the heart of all the action. Brilliant place to stay for the crossings. So secluded yet so central. Tent comfortable right next to the river. Bucket showers surprisingly good. Fabulous food. The mess tent is very chic. Especially loved the life sized cooking hippo. Lovely helpful staff. Saw three large... More

We loved Nkorombo. The location was perfect for viewing the migration. It was central to every crossing point. It was also easy to get over to the Mara Triangle. The animal sightings were incredible. Our guide James was amazing. He has his Silver level guiding and knew so much. He also was great at predicting where the wildebeest were going... More

We had room 4 - beautiful views over the Mara. Could spot giraffe, zebra, elephants, antelope etc ambling past and we could hear hippos grumbling (who needs an alarm clock?!). The guide (Francis, aided by Sylvester) was excellent and all the camp staff were helpful and attentive, especially the main man who has been with Alex for 12+ years and... More

This is Alex Walkers Mobile Camp it moves every six months and follows the migration of the wildebeest. It is not a hotel like many would like but compared to camping it is pure luxury. With flush toilets and hot showers, great food and game drives to see many large mammals you will be most pleased.

We took our three sons aged 6, 8 and 12 to Serian to celebrate my 40th birthday. Not only was the accommodation perfect, the guides so helpful and the managers and other guests wonderful but on my actual birthday I was treated to a cake and an incredible dancing and singing performance by the staff. It was a fabulous safari.

We stayed at the Serian Camp June 25 - 29, 2015 and the Nkorombo Camp June 30-July 5. What a great experience ! I was wondering what tent camping would be like, the food, the animals near camp, but no worries. The chefs at both camps made excellent meals. Fresh fruit, cooked to order breakfast with eggs and sausage. Lunches... More
