Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Ngare Serian Camp

This camp is very special. The tents are set right on the River. From Room #1 you can watch a pod of hippos from your bed! It's magic! Alex Walker got the tent design right with the bathrooms on the inside of this one. Access to the camp is over a small walking bridge so not for people with a fear of heights.  — Mango's view

Serian (meaning peaceful, calm or serene in the Maa language of the Maasai people) is the charismatic bush home of Alex Walker, filmmaker and guide in the Masai Mara. Serian Camp is an exclusive bush camp that flanks a secluded valley located alongside the Mara River. Ngare Serian Camp is located just across the river.

With just four tented suites set beside the Mara River in a private conservancy, Ngare Serian is yet more intimate. Access to this exclusive camp is by rope bridge, reinforcing the sense of isolation. Ngare Serian is perfect for people who value their privacy, or who want to share it with their families or close friends.

Meals are freshly prepared by the most experienced safari chefs in the country. The meals are either served in the open air shaded by Serian Camp trees with spectacular views of the river and beyond or in the formal dining area.

Activities include twice daily wildlife drives, hot air balloon safaris over the plains (extra cost), guided bush/nature walks, bush breakfasts, sun-downers, local cultural & community visits. The area around camp is becoming increasingly busy, but this is offset by the fact that Serian vehicles, which are private for every group, range far and wide to give the best guest experience and by the fact that the camp has a private walking concession on the west bank of the river.
