Just got back form a safari in Kenya that spanned four parks and 6 different lodges. Serian was by far the best. The camp had beautifully spacious tents overlooking the river, the food was the best we had anywhere, and the camp manager was a lovely hostess who bent over backwards to accommodated all our special requests for meals, bush dinners and game drives. Most importantly, we saw far more interesting game in the private conservancy there than when we stayed at another camp right in the Maasai Mara. We lucked into a leopard with a kill up in a tree, a pride of twenty one lions all together with cubs, elephants by camp, and dramatics stand-offs between lions and buffalo It was all amazing. All our friends agreed that the three days at Serian was the highlight of the trip.
