Serian Camp

“Experience the wild wonders of Serian Camp – book your adventure now!”

Serian Camp Overview

Serian, the initial camp established by Alex, truly embodies its name’s essence. Derived from the Masai language, it signifies ‘peaceful, calm, serene’, serving as a sanctuary from the fast-paced modern world. It offers an opportunity to immerse oneself in the untamed beauty of Africa, all while indulging in the traditional luxury of tented accommodations. Situated within the private Mara North Conservancy, this location’s allure lies in its exclusivity, with only ten other camps granted access. Thus, the privilege of possessing a personal slice of Africa is a luxury that we abundantly provide.

What we Do at Serian Camp

As everyone is automatically allocated their own private vehicle when they stay with us, it only makes sense to complement this with a top-class guiding team. To optimise your experience, our guides work together with a spotter: an invaluable extra pair of eyes to ceaselessly scan the landscape while your guide focuses on navigating the terrain, and translating the inner workings of the wilderness to you. In this way, ‘book-knowledge’ plus an ancient system acquired over an age of living the wild life interweaves seamlessly to form a rich tapestry of knowledge to share.

Serian Camp Accommodation

Serian consists of five vast marquees perched on beautiful hardwood decking – one of which is a family suite. Each marquee is unique in its own way, but we furnish all of them with elegant simplicity and complement them with countless thoughtful little personal touches that make it feel like home. The beautiful bush bathrooms offer views over the river valley as you soak in your tub, and you will feel the delicious sensation of being outdoors. The bathrooms are airy and spacious, including a shower as well as an enormous bath, twin basins, and a flushing toilet. The thatched mess area has a stunning view over the Mara River and the Siria escarpment, and it is the perfect spot to share a sundowner and stories of the dwindling day. Join Adrian and Roisin by the fireside, and watch as the stars take over the sky. The comfy furniture, smooth wooden decks, and indoor fireplace give a warm feeling of home away from home – and our idea is for you to treat it like one: so sit back, put up your feet, and succumb to the chilled ambiance and good company that constitutes Serian’s nightlife.

Serian Camp “The Nest’ Treehouse”

Book a romantic night in The Nest in the middle of your stay at Serian or Ngare Serian. 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’ complements 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 Camp. 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.

“What an amazing experience at Serian Camp! The attention to detail in the camp setup and the personalized service provided by the staff was exceptional. The private vehicle and guide allowed us the flexibility to explore at our own pace. The highlight was spending a night at ‘The Nest’ treehouse under the stars—truly magical. The spacious tents, delicious food, and amazing wildlife sightings made this a trip of a lifetime.”
