Serian - The Original Camp

Serian Camp was the original property in Alex Walker’s collection of intimate safari camps.

Meaning ‘peaceful, calm, serene’ in the Masai language, Serian is a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and a chance to see a huge variety of animals in an exclusive area of African wilderness.

 

 

Serian is one of just ten camps in the private Mara North Conservancy. From June to November this is an ideal location from which to witness East Africa’s Great Migration when the wildebeest and zebra make their perilous crossings of the Mara River. Other times of the year are equally as exciting, the varied terrain of the Masai Mara offers some of the best game-viewing in Africa including all the Big Game and Big Cats.

 

Accommodation

Six individual guest tents (one a Family Suite) are placed on elevated wooden decking. Each is spacious and unique, but all are furnished with four-poster wrought-iron double beds with wooden bedside tables and writing desks. Adjoining bathrooms include a large bath, shower, twin basins and a flushing toilet.

There is a thatched mess area with a beautiful view over the Mara River and the Siria escarpment. With a lovely homely feel with comfortable furniture, wooden decks and a cosy indoor fireplace, this is the perfect meeting point for guests to relax with drinks and to share stories of the day’s game-viewing.

 

Activities

A safari experience at Serian includes day and night game drives, expert guides / spotters with unrivalled knowledge of the flora and fauna, exclusive use of premium open-top vehicles, bush breakfasts or lunches in the serenity of the wilderness and wonderful sundowners in scenic locations.

Walking safaris are a real highlight. These enable guests to get as close as possible to nature and to learn more about the plants and animals that are often missed from a vehicle. Discover various animal tracks, the fascinating workings of termite mounds and how local plants are used in the day to day lives of the Masai community.

Other activities that can be organised include river fishing and cultural visits.

 

Serian Camp is ideal to combine with other camps in the Alex Walker collection, such as the unique The Nest Treehouse or Nkorombo Tented Mobile Camp with its riverside setting in the heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve.

 

‘The Nest’ Treehouse

For the ultimate “in the wilds” adventure, why not experience a night in a tree, under a star-filled African sky? Immerse yourself in the peace and serenity of a private tree house with nothing between you and the heavens but a canopy of rustling leaves and moonshine.

‘The Nest’ compliments the prestigious Alex Walker collection of camps and is perched out on a limb in a lone Warburgia tree overlooking the Mara River, close to Serian and Ngare Serian Camps.

With two double nest-shaped beds plus space for a couple of bedrolls, The Nest can work either as a romantic overnight tryst for two or as an amazing sleepover for an adventurous family or group of friends.

Set in 1500 acres of exclusive conservation area adjoining the private Mara North Conservancy, there is space and freedom to roam and explore as you wish. Night-vision cameras are installed so you don’t miss the activity of nocturnal animals.
