Serian Serengeti Camp

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Serian Serengeti Camp

Serian Serengeti Camp is a small mobile camp with a luxurious edge. It shifts locations between the northern and southern regions of the Serengeti throughout the year so as to track the great migration.

Serian Safaris earned their reputation with their upmarket Kenyan bush camps, which successfully combine high-end luxury with an authentic bush experience. The newly opened (2010) Serian Serengeti Camp seeks to replicate this success in Tanzania. The result is one of the best small luxury camps in the Serengeti.

Serian Serengeti Camp is a mobile operation that shifts between the far northern and southern regions of the Serengeti. Between June and October it operates as Serengeti North Camp in the Mara region, close to the border with Kenya. This is perfect for catching the migration and the famous Mara River crossings, in a quiet location away from the crowds. During much of the rest of the year the camp relocates to the southern reaches of the Serengeti, offering a chance to see the wildebeest and zebra herds as they congregate in the southern reaches of the park at the start of the safari season.

As a mobile camp, Serian Serengeti doesn’t offer the facilities of a permanent lodge (no pool and spa), but it’s very much a luxury camp, with large, beautifully-furnished tents and the highest standards of service. The real highlight, of course, is the game-viewing. Serian Camps are always positioned in remote spots away from the crowds, and Serian Serengeti is no exception. More importantly, it offers a more or less year-round window onto the migration. Game activities at Serian Serengeti are intended to be as flexible as possible. All guests/groups are allocated a dedicated guide and vehicle on arrival, and are free to plan their days as they please, without being bound to the rigid schedules and shared vehicles that are a feature of so many safari camps.

Accommodation

Serian Serengeti Camp has just eight tents. These are classic Meru-style safari tents, furnished in a tasteful style, with thick rugs, comfortable double beds, and bergere chairs. All tents have connecting private bathrooms, with flush toilets and bucket showers (hot water on demand).

Tents can be converted into family units on request.

Serian also offer a fly camp in the Serengeti – a dome tent set up in the bush, with long-drop loo and bucket shower – which provides more of a wild bush experience. Use of the fly camp is free.

Dining

The main tent functions as the lounge and dining area. Meals are served by candlelight around a communal table. Expect delicious three-course dinners and generous cooked breakfasts. Lunch is served in the lodge or taken as a picnic while out on game activities.

Activities

Guided 4x4 game drives (with private vehicle and guide)

Child Policy

Serian Serengeti Camp accepts children of all ages. However, as a remote mobile camp we wouldn’t recommend Serian to families with younger children.
