At any point in time, there is a whole range of incredible and exciting things going on at any one of our camps. Whether you already have your dates booked and just want to check what the highlights will be, or you’re looking for when is best to visit a certain area – we’ve broken the year down into quarters, and sections of interest: general game, migration, photography, and walking.
August and the festive season tend to be popular times to come on safari – but if you can skirt around these busy periods, the magic is still very much happening… And the best part is that the plains are empty of people, and you have the wilderness to yourself. Have a look at our guide to picking the moment that will suit you best – and remember that the road less travelled will always make all the difference.
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, without the limitations of fixed schedules, or fitting in with other peoples’ plans. Nothing but personal desire need dictate what you do.
Our vehicles are specially customised to be a climbing frame, and a photographer’s extra tool. They are comfortable, able to handle the terrain, and cover the distance…. And were designed for sun, rain, wind, and above all, the feeling of having as little as possible separating you from what’s out there.
Our guides and spotters are intimately familiar with these special places, so they know all its secrets and the ways the animals interact with it, from the subtle changes of the seasons, to the stages of an animals lifecycle, to the flora that sustains it all – they are the key that can unlock it all for you.
We can also do night drives in Serian’s Serengeti South, Serian, and Ngare Serian. Red-filter spotlights illuminate the nocturnal world without dazzling the wildlife, so you can watch the night come alive with no disturbance to the animals. Take a flask of soup and a blanket, and enjoy the wilderness by starlight
