We are already planning our return! Thank you so much for providing such a memorable experience. If you want to do Africa right visit the Alex Walker camps. We...

The moment you touch down on the Mara North airstrip and you are welcomed by your two Masaï guides the dream starts. Serian is as close to nature as you can get, with all possible comfort and without ever feeling like a tourist. There are just a couple of tents (actually luxurious rooms) and you quickly get to know everyone....

I spent four nights at Sirian with my husband and another couple and we had an amazing time! The accommodations were perfect - beautiful luxury tents overlooking a hippo pool. The food was absolutely delicious and the scenery around the camp was just breathtaking. What made this camp a cut above though was definitely the people. All of the people...

Super Moon Spectacular I was quite fortunate to have Sam and John, driver and spotter, with me the entire time in the bush. We had traveled from Serian Ngare, check my other review there, to another unbelievable campsite perched on the edge of the Mara River. Comprised of only 4 well-decorated tents and a bucket shower that I was dying...

Having spent the first night at the previous camp listening to lions a meter away, or rather thinking of them being under the bed, we assumed that as Serian was up above the Mara river and the tent had a terrace around it a good night's sleep awaited us.......until at 2.30a.m. something or some things began to grunt and snort....

We stayed for the first time at the Serian Nkorombo and Serian Ngare Camps in October 2016 and discovered quickly that these are the ultimate camps for photographers. Our guides were nothing short of superb. Gladys and Oyongo were knowledgeable, funny, and a pleasure to spend each day with. Not only were they able to find seemingly any animal that...

Thai was our first time on Safari and we got so much more than we've imagined. We think Serian crew had a lot to do with this.

Serian Nkorombo located on the banks of the Mara River is such a beautiful location. A small intimate camp allowed the staff to give us great service. I love the small details - from the hot water provided in the morning to wash your face to the waiter always ensuring your glass is never empty. The guides are very knowledgeable...

Amenities

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A traditional bush camp most suited to adventurous outdoors characters in search of a real experience. "Serian" means peaceful, calm or serene in the Maa language. An artists haven and one of the most picturesque sites in the Mara. Located in the heart of the Mara North Conservancy "Serian" operates throughout the year. 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. The Nest is a tree house perfect for a picnic after a bush walk in the private conservancy, where guests can also spend the night in the two oval double beds and watch nocturnal game on the infra-red cameras! ... more   less
