Serian's Serengeti North Camp
Serian's Serengeti North Camp is a seasonal mobile camp operating between July and November in the far north of Tanzania's Serengeti. Set a short distance from the Mara River, Serian is a great camp to catch the dramatic wildebeest river crossings.
Seasonal tented mobile camp set up between June and November to catch the best of the wildebeest migration in the Lamai Wedge
The award winning guide and tracker teams bring the safari to life, taking you away from the crowds to explore this vast and wild part of the northern Serengeti
Serian's Serengeti mobile camps guarantee you an authentic Africa safari experience, excellent locations and classically styled luxury safari tents
Serian's Serengeti North Camp is found on the northern bank of Mara River, in the hard to reach Lamai Wedge, in a hidden valley known as the Wogakuria. This exclusive safari area offers exactly the location you'd want from a mobile seasonal safari camp. You benefit from the epic game viewing of this most dramatic of seasons, and escape the frustrating crowds which can build up in other areas of the ecosystem.
This secluded and peaceful location is rich in year round resident wildlife, but is truly brought to life each year between June and November when the migration passes by in what is one of the world's most dramatic and thrilling spectacles. The Mara River swarms with voracious crocodiles trying to take a passing wildebeest as they plunge off steep banks into swirling muddy water. Up on the banks, among the riverine forest and waiting in the granite kopjes you'll find prides of lions, elusive leopards and cheetah on the plains waiting for their moment.
The six spacious and stylish tents have big comfortable beds and ensuite bathrooms with flushing toilets and hot safari-style bucket showers. There is a small library and shady communal area to relax in during the hot part of the day. The chefs will then amaze you with the outstanding quality of the food they produce from their camp oven, and at the end of a long and eventful day you'll warm yourself by the fire, before heading to your comfy bed, lulled to sleep by the sounds of the African night. If you hit the season right, it is hard to think of a better migration experience than that offered by Serian.
