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 and security is so perfectly organized that one is free to experience the incredible vastness of the Savannah and its animals in the purest sense of the word.
Alex Walker's staff fulfills even the most unusual of requests: The power supply for my apnea machine was a car battery located next to my bed that was charged each day. This was also the case at the Nkorombo mobile field camp - something that simply must be experienced in person! And if I wanted to, the crew would have carried a battery to the Suguroi Hill Tree house for me: Access is possible on foot only, giving you that authentic Tarzan & Jane feeling!
