Serian “The Original”
Mara North Conservancy
Serian “The Original”, has been built high above the Mara River, a wide bend dominates the views over the Masai Mara National Reserve. The landscape around the camp is varied from wide open plains to dense bush and rocks that surround the camp and create a beautiful setting for your safari.
The main guest area at the lodge consists of a very warm and comfortable lounge and dining area with a broad deck that has stunning views over the river. A small curio shop sells locally made curios’ with the proceeds feeding directly back to the local tribes. The deck is the perfect location for breakfasts and lunch, dinner is also served here on warmer evenings amid a dense racket of bird calls.
The six guest tents at Serian are set amongst the dense bush and rocks above the river and the Masai askari escort guests around the camp after dark. Each tent has been built onto raised cement and wooden decks ensuring a view from each over the river.
Each of the tents has been beautifully and lovingly created for comfort, style and functionality. The beds are the colonial four posters that are draped with mosquito nets and there is a writing desk as well as a deck at the front of each with comfortable chairs where bird watching is excellent.
The bathrooms at Serian are separate from the bedroom and are accessed via a small walkway. There is a smaller en-suite attached to the bedroom and the separate en-suite is used for the famous baths they have with views out over the bush.
The family tent at Serian consists of two tents that are joined by a large deck replete with lounge and dining area. Both have an en-suite bathroom.
A rare treat here at Serian is the private vehicle, guide and spotter that is assigned to each guests stay ensuring very personalized activities.
