THE NEST
What does it take to find the perfect tree house? We looked all over the private Pusinkariak area we call home. Located on the western side of the Mara River and only open to access by foot – thick with trees, valleys, rocks – we kept circling back to one particular spot: fifty metres from the water looking along a stretch that is filled by a raucous pod of hippo. A line of Warburgia stretches along a little draw, and a single tree at the end shows scars: a scratching post for a resident male leopard. The salt lick luring the impala leads to a hippo funnel and their small sandy beach.

Whether it’s adventure or romance you’re after, a night in our beautiful little tree house ‘The Nest’ is an unmissable must.
LOCATION

Our tree house, ‘The Nest’, is perched out on a limb in a lone Warburgia tree overlooking the Mara River. A mere meander away from Serian, it’s the perfect picnic spot after a trek through the bushes, and doubles as a romantic overnight tryst for two: think soup under the stars to the sounds of harrumphing hippo…

ACCOMMODATION

With two double nest-shaped beds, plus space for a couple more bedrolls, it can work either as an intrepid sleepover for the adventurer wanting to engage their senses, or a means for a family to realise that inner-child dream of living in a tree-house… This special little spot will add an extra element to a stay at Serian or Ngare Serian.

WHAT WE DO

Set in our own 1,500 acres of exclusive conservation area sharing a border with the private Mara North Conservancy, there is space and freedom to roam and explore as you wish. We’ve also installed night-vision cameras so you can monitor what happens after dark – perhaps a leopard on the lookout, or a hyena loping along… The night awakens a whole new world of animal interplay.

Top Tips

See the stars. The nocturnal element of safari often gets forgotten, but you’ll see the clearest skies of your life in the bush: go on a night drive, cut the engine, switch off the lights, and marvel at the infinite glittering heavens.

Pack a pair of binoculars before you pack anything else. They will greatly enhance your game-viewing experience. Quality counts with optics.
