The Masai Mara’s most intimate camp, Ngare Serian is located in the Mara North Conservancy and has an air of seclusion - the camp can only be accessed via a rope bridge.

Ngare provides fabulously stylish and contemporary lodging - each of its four luxury marquees are situated on an elevated, solid hardwood deck with views across the African landscape. Each tent is provided with a personal game viewing vehicle and trained guide for optimal game viewing and decorated in stylish, yet traditional safari style. The tents house spacious bedrooms with 4-poster beds and bathrooms with flush toilets, twin basins, sunken bathtubs and separate showers. The communal dining area is great for kicking back with a good book.

Friend and family groups will enjoy this intimate 4 000 acre setting; and there are loads of activities to keep everyone entertained: from walking safaris to river fishing. Expect to be wowed by gorgeous views overlooking the Mara River from your bedroom and waking up to the rich inimitable smell of the bush each morning.

Wake up to a scrumptious breakfast, while lunch is an array of salads, cheeses, pastas and quiches. After a packed day of game drives in your own private safari vehicle stop off for an afternoon picnic.

Upon your return to the camp enjoy a sundowner and share your day's happenings in the dining area. Finally end off a jam-packed day with a delicious candlelit dinner under the African Sky.


Each stylish tented suite has an airy bedroom complete with a Zanzibar-style 4-poster bed and comfortable couch. The well designed bathroom has a spacious bathtub from which you can view the hippos in the Mara River or enjoy a refreshing outdoor shower.

The large wooden deck is great for relaxing and soaking up the warm African sun and ambiance of the bush.

Another accommodation option is to spend a night or two in The Nest, Serian's 'treehouse' in the Mara North Conservancy. Perfect for a small family with young children or as a romantic night out for adventurous couples, the Nest is equipped with state-of-the-art night vision cameras so that you can monitor what happens after dark with infra-red technology. This might be the night you see a leopard bringing her cubs to a fresh kill!

  • The Serian was just like you said... luxurious yet a true African experience. We couldn't have been more pleased.

"Alex Walker describes Ngare Serian as 'This refuge of serenity may not suit those who seek tame, barren surroundings. Rather, it fits the more audacious voyager who seeks out safari's real character'. Authentic and real, a must-visit for sure."
