Ngare Serian is designed for being taken exclusively for family gatherings or large groups of friends. It is also the perfect hideaway though for any honeymooners looking for a romantic and peaceful escape. There are four tented suites and each of these are situated on a hard wood deck with a veranda overlooking the Mara River.
Serian camps are dedicated to providing the best safari experience possible and so offer private game vehicles to their guests to ensure that each group can go their own way and go on as long or short game drives as they wish.

Hot air ballooning or helicopter rides over the Mara are also available and are a thrilling way to see the landscape from a new perspective.
The tents themselves are so spacious they should really be described as marquees and are light in color giving them a lovely natural and airy feel and then decorated inside with comfortable antiques giving the camp a real home away from home feel. The beautiful sunken baths provide wonderful views of the river so you can relax in the tub whilst really appreciating your surroundings.

Location & Directions
Maasai Mara, Kenya
Ngare Serian Camp is located on the banks of the Mara river, approximately 1-hour 30-minutes away from the northern entrance gate to the Maasai Mara reserve in southwest Kenya.
When to go
The only time to avoid Kenya is during the long rainy season in April and May. November is considered the short rainy season, however, these are less predictable and are much lighter. The best time of year to visit the Maasai Mara is during the Great Wildebeest Migration which tends to pass through the Mara between mid July to late October.
