Serian ‘The Original’

Serian The Original

Serian The Original in Masai Mara

Serian Camp is a small independent tented camp, owned by safari guide Alex Walker. It has two sister camps in the Mara, one directly across Mara River, Ngare Serian Camp and other one inside the Masai Mara National Reserve, Nkorombo Serian Camp. The word ‘serian’ in the Masai language means ‘serene or tranquil’.

For a family or a larger group, the family unit is ideal with two tents and two bathrooms and set on a large deck with a shaded lounge and dining area between the two tents. The group can dine down here in private if they wish.

None of the Serian camps has Wifi. A stay at Serian Camp is a real chance to disconnect from the modern world and reconnect to nature.

You are encouraged to take an early morning game drive but you are free to organise your schedule as you deem suitable. Each group is provided with their own 4×4 game vehicle, a guide and wildlife spotter to allow flexibility. You will retain the pair for the entire duration of your stay at Serian.

At 4pm you have afternoon cup of tea or coffee before heading out for another game drive in the cooling afternoon. Later in the evening, you will stop over a scenic spot for sundowner as you enjoy the amber colour of the sunset.

For visitors staying for three or more nights, they have the option of doing all day game drive in Masai Mara National Reserve. This is suitable during the wildebeest migration season between July and October to witness the crossing.

Guided bush walk is another major activity in Serian. Short walks for all ages are taken the private conservancy which is 16 square kilometers on the west bank of the Mara River. Long walks are done in Mara North Conservancy accompanied by armed guards. Night game drives are also available in the camp.

Fly camping at The Nest Treehouse is another option. The rustic fly camp is a short walk north of Serian Camp.
