Lovely location, well hidden and secluded with views directly over the Mara river. Great welcome and fantastic service, geared entirely around what we and the other guests wanted to do. Excellent food including freshly baked bread every day (terrible temptation).
Also had an excellent guide (Steve) and an equally excellent driver (Onyango), a boon in conditions that had many other vehicles frequently bogged. Game viewing average for the time of year (long grass), which meant that it was pretty good! Great lion sightings specially.
Loved the camp, liked the company's philosophy and hope to return soon.

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.
