Serian ‘The Original’

In the Mara North Conservancy you will find Serian ‘The Original’, a camp with exceptional guiding, excellent community and conservation ties, and incredible experiences to last a lifetime. This is one of our favorite camps and we highly recommend it!

Serian is owned and operated by Alex Walker. A fourth-generation Kenyan and child of a professional hunter, he spent his childhood in the forest and bush learning from local trackers. A highly respected guide, Alex has made Serian his home, and you will feel that you are his private guests in a gracious and magical place.

Serian ‘The Original’ is barefoot luxury: it offers beautiful, stylish accommodation in spacious, comfortable tents overlooking the river and nestled under a canopy of trees. Lamp-lit decks, hot water showers, open-air bathrooms, blazing campfires, excellent meals and incredible staff come together to create a fun, intimate experience that we think is really special.

Guests can do both game drives and walks, and the area has prolific wildlife year-round. Not only are you are guaranteed an authentic bush experience at Serian, we particularly love that you have exclusive use of your vehicle and guide while at the camp, ensuring that you can see and do precisely as you please, on your own schedule.

Serian also works closely with the community and provides work projects and scholarships to locals.

If you are at Serian ‘The Original’ for more than 2 nights, you could spend a night sleeping out at the tree house, called ‘The Nest’, which is perched out on a limb in a lone Warburgia tree overlooking the Mara River. A mere meander away from Serian, it’s the perfect picnic spot after a trek through the bushes, and doubles as a romantic overnight spot for two: think soup under the stars to the sounds of harrumphing hippo – The Nest is truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. We also love to pair Serian Mara with the Serian Mobile Camp in the Serengeti which moves to match the wildebeest migration.
