Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
We love camps that specialise in creating a personal tailor-made experience, which is one of the many reasons why we’re so fond of Serian ‘The Original’. With its name meaning peaceful and serene in the Masai language, you’ll be sure to enjoy a calm, authentic African bush stay here.
Nestled in the private Mara North Conservancy, the five tents are beautifully secluded and offer you your own rustic retreat. Sophisticated yet simplistic décor creates an airy, natural feel, whilst the spacious elevated verandas offer jaw-dropping views of the Masai Mara plains. Some of these tents contain a separate toilet on the verandah for an added rustic feel. Family accommodation consists of two tents on the same decking, with one ensuite and one separate bathroom.
Personalised experiences are this camp’s forte, and so you’ll have your own vehicle, tracker and guide ready to take you out on safari whenever you please throughout the day. The gourmet food is simply delicious too, and we love relaxing with the camp managers by the roaring campfire.
The thatched roof mess area overlooks the winding Mara River adorned with grazing hippo and elephant, featuring a cosy country style lounge area, a lovely open-air dining room, and a spacious veranda.
Serian will grace you with your own slice of Africa, and the charming, tranquil ambience will certainly entice you.
