SERIAN 'THE ORIGINAL'
Serian was the first of Alex’s camps, and it perfectly captures the essence of its name: meaning ‘peaceful, calm, serene’ in the Masai language, it was designed to be a retreat from the bustle of contemporary life, and a chance to experience untamed Africa in traditional tented splendour.

It lies in the private Mara North Conservancy, and the beauty of this location is that only 10 other camps have access to it – so the feeling of having your own personal piece of Africa is a luxury that we have in spades.

ACCOMMODATION

Game-drives tend to be the principal means of going about spotting wildlife, and are likely to comprise a great deal of your safari – so it goes without saying that this aspect of your experience is an especial point of focus for us. We believe the way to get the most out of your time is that everyone is furnished with their own exclusive vehicle, and private spotter and guide – automatically included in our rates.

The effect of this is profound, because it makes you the captain of your ship, and the master of your destiny – you can do what you like, when you like… And you can change your mind as you go along, with no one to answer to but yourself.

Exclusive use of 4WD Safari vehicle and dedicated guide and spotter.

We make an excellent picnic breakfast and lunch, tasty enough to justify eating out anyway – but early-morning starts tend to catch the daily activity that takes place before the sun climbs high and renders the animals lethargic. After a few hours of exploring to work up your appetite, your guide will pick a scenic spot under a tree and lay out a feast for you that will alter your concept of al fresco dining forever.

An all-day drive can also be well worth a try: it unfolds the possibility of roaming further afield, and covering some of the diverse landscapes around and about. You can stay out from dawn til dusk, or simply see where the day takes you and come home when you’re ready – the choice is always yours.

Top Tips

Disconnect. So many destinations now offer wifi access, but you’re shortchanging yourself on an opportunity to genuinely immerse somewhere beautiful when you stay online with the ‘real’ world.

Look up from the lens. We love photography, but sometimes it’s about putting down the camera and being present in the moment, experiencing its full intensity and beauty.
