My sister and I had a fantastic 4 nights at Serian, 2 at main camp and 2 at mobile camp. Both were fabulous - the staff who looked after us were amazing and even after such a short time it felt like home. Mobile camp, in particular, on the banks of the river was a perfect haven away from the world. In all we had 4 weeks travelling on safari and Serian is the place that has stayed with me the most. Even without the game drives, this would be the perfect place to disappear for a few days with wonderful hospitality, excellent food & drinks and a good book! Highly recommended and I hope to return one day.

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.

My family spent an amazing 3 days at Serian. We were treated like Royalty in the most amazing surroundings. Fantastic food, staff and tents. We had our own itinerary planned so weren't tied into anything we didn't want to do. We had our own Landcruiser and driver at our beck and call which was really fantastic. 4 o'clock cake was the best I've ever tasted. Tea in the the tent in the morning and a hot water bottle in the bed in the evening were just some of the magic touches that made this trip so fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone.... young or old.

Room Tip: We travelled as a family and all slept in one enormous tent. This worked perfectly as each tent is fairly secluded.

Wonderful five day stay in Kenya. Beautiful views from our tent. Our guide, Steve, and driver, Mikala, were extremely knowledgeable and excellent company. One day I did a walking safari that was extremely difficult, but well worth it, once you reached the top of the escarpment. The views were awesome. The great thing about Serian is that you have your own driver and guide, so you have total control over what time you leave and when you come back to camp. It was great having that flexibility.

The food was wonderful and the staff was extremely helpful and more than willing to provide anything they could. The regular camp managers were on leave, so Sophie was running the camp. She was very funny and it was a pleasure getting to know her.

We saw a wildebeest and zebra river crossing that was so exciting to watch. We saw so much game -- leopard, cheetah, lion, elephant, hippo, crocodile, pack of hyenas including babies and tons of birds.

Most of the drivers and guides are from the Masai tribe. It was great getting to know their culture and beliefs.

Our trip of a lifetime was completed with 4 days @ Serian Camp. Accommodations were unique and "safari camp" elegant; food was great! The game drive were perfect with fun guides.

We experienced everything we were hoping for at Serian. Hopefully will go again this year!

PS- THE STAFF WAS EXCELLENT with wonderful customer service... ALWAYS!
