SERIAN'S NKOROMBO MOBILE
Nkorombo is Serian’s tented mobile camp, set on a private riverside site in the Masai Mara Reserve. This snug little setup is chock-full of character with a view over the rushing Mara River, bursting with laughing hippo and languorous crocodile. Much like at Serian and Ngare Serian, life at Nkorombo is low-key and tranquil. Nestled among a stand of wild olive and orange croton, the camp is right next to a lively salt lick that regularly features black rhino, and lion and leopard on the lookout for kill… There is an abundance of prey in this area, and it’s the perfect spot for spectacular game viewing.

Nkorombo’s charmed location is a photographer’s dream – and only a small leap over the border to the river crossings at Serian’s Serengeti Mobile – Lamai.

ACCOMMODATION

This one has more of a traditional tented feel than Serian and Ngare Serian – Nkorombo is thoroughly canvas, and touches like the time-honoured safari showers are a nod to the differences between fixed and mobile camps.

Designed to blend seamlessly into its stunning surrounds, it comprises five spacious ‘Selous style’ tents decked out in safari style of yore: leather, weathered wood, gauzy swathes of cotton, all lend accents to the essential, beautiful and comfortable style that defines Nkorombo. The en suite bathrooms blend wilderness and luxury, with flush toilets and bucket showers.

WHAT WE DO

The cornerstone of a safari experience at Serian is that each group has their own open-top safari vehicle, and their own dedicated guide and spotter. The freedom this grants you is key to getting the most out of your stay: go where the day takes you, be it a full day out with a picnic in the wilderness, or a lazy siesta back in camp before that ice-cold sundowner… Our guides have an intimate familiarity with the landscape, and will translate and render it until you see it through their eyes.

Go where the day takes you, be it a full day out with a picnic in the wilderness, or a lazy siesta back in camp before that ice-cold sundowner…

As the setting sun draws the day to a close, head back to camp and join us round the campfire – the perfect gathering spot to share a pre-dinner drink and stories of the dwindling day.

Top Tips

Many photographers forget to take pictures of animals in their environment. They are too focused on frame-filling portraits that reveal every hair or feather

Perfect location to combine with Serian or Ngare to be closer to the crossings for the migrations annual passage.
