A fantastic and magical experience: a knowledgeable and delightful guide (Tuma) and a brilliant spotter (Pius) supported by a highly hospitable “management team” of Alex Walker, Gerard and Robyn with their font of ever-so-slightly terrifying stories of life in the bush and their calm determination to make sure you really savour every moment of your stay. Amazingly good food and very comfortable accommodation, with the lovely touches of hot coffee/chocolate at your wake up in the dark of the morning to hot water delivered to your showers when you return from your day. To go to sleep to the noise of wildebeest and hippo wandering past your tent, having had an entertaining dinner with the other guests, and wake up looking out towards the rift valley as the sun comes up is something we will never forget. From the drives to the walks, nothing was ever too much trouble for the Serian team. For our children, who had never been to before, this was almost too much for them – “we’ll never be able to come back as this was just so perfect”. If you want mown grass and a commercial feel don’t go to Serian: if you want to experience Africa at its best, with a brilliant team then do.
