To start planning your holiday to Serian's Serengeti South Camp


Serian's Serengeti South operates between December and April in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It's perfect for exploring the Serengeti's Southern Plains. This is the place to experience the wildebeest calving season at its height.

Serian's six tented Serengeti South camp operates across the wildebeest calving season in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area between December and April. This is an authentic and stylish bush camp in an area which over the season receives well over a million wildebeest feeding on the short grasses of these southern plains.

Enjoy the exclusive safari experience offered by Serian in this phenomenal wilderness area with your private vehicle, guide and spotter team. Multiple sets of eyes are always a benefit in the bush, and the acute senses of the fantastic team at Serian will ensure you don't miss a thing when out exploring.

The location of this camp presents visitors with a variety of experiences. While the huge herds and their young claves are the obvious focus at this time of year, you are also only a 2-hour drive to the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater. For a truly memorable cultural experience, you are able to spend time with the Hadzabe, the bushmen of this area of the Serengeti. Learn about their culture and experience their phenomenal sixth sense for the environment when out on a hunt with the men.

The accommodation at Serian Serengeti South is in six, meru style, en-suite tents. One of the tents is a two-bedroom tented suite, perfect for families or couples travelling together, with two ensuite tents joined by a shared lounge area. This is classic safari style with large, comfortable beds and opulent antique rugs.

The bathrooms offer luxury in the bush with hot and cold plumbed water. All tents benefit from 240 v electricity, essential for keeping camera batteries fully charged.


Nearly fifty staff make sure that you are looked after in regal style throughout your safari with Serian. Enjoy a hot cup of tea with your morning wake-up call from the warmth of your own bed. Marvel at the creations of the chefs who will tailor their menu to your own tastes. Enjoy the atmospheric setting of the comfortable mess tent, or soak in the Serengeti itself with starlit dinners close to the camp fire.


One of the huge benefits of a safari with Serian is the exclusive use of your own game-drive vehicle with professional guide and tracking team. Game drives operate entirely at the will and whim of the guest, short drives early in the morning, night time adventures with the nocturnal predators or full day drives with picnic lunches. Outside of the vehicle you can get closer to the action by setting out on foot with your guide.


  • Game drive in the Serengeti

    Explore the vast grasslands of the Serengeti with your safari guide on game drives in the early morning and late afternoon. This is one of the most famous national parks in Africa, and it's easy to see why.

  • Hot air ballooning over the Serengeti

    Soar over the Serengeti's savannah plains in a hot air balloon at dawn, watching wildlife beneath you & finishing with a champagne bush breakfast.

  • Search for the migration herds

    One of Africa's most iconic moments - the migration of two million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles around the Serengeti-Maasai Mara ecosystem.
