About This Accommodation

Serian Ngare is in the Mara North Conservancy, sitting just across a suspension bridge over the Mara River from Serian Camp. This scenic and secluded camp is on the riverbank with views over the lush surroundings.

Smaller and more polished than Serian Camp, Ngare consists of 4 spacious tents on wooden platforms and are ideal for a honeymoon couple or a family group looking for exclusivity. The tents are huge and beautifully decorated with an outdoor bathing area, flush toilets and hot water for shower or tub. Your tent is lit by softly glowing kerosene lanterns, but there are also lights and electricity for re-charging batteries in the tents. The tents overlook the river and the active hippos make this a unique (and sometimes noisy!) experience.

Day and night game drives, game walks, fishing and photography workshops are provided by highly experienced guides.

Serian Ngare offers everything we love about Serian Camp and Serian Nkorombo: the great guiding, the intimate experience, the exclusive use vehicles, with just a bit more luxury and polish. However, the only way to access the camp is by crossing the suspension bridge, which may be off-putting for some guests.

What Our Clients Think

We loved being so near to the hippos and rivers. Great having entire camp to ourselves. Very memorable bush dinner and great meals at the camps with fresh veggies. Adrien and Roline, and the rest of the staff were welcoming, laidback and fun. Guides Sam and Bajikla were great, found us an elusive leopard!"

Beautiful tent. Very close to nature!"

Very good choice for an intimate Mara camp. The conservancy adds another dimension vs. the Reserve in terms of intimacy. I really appreciated Lara's choice once I got there."

I loved this camp. The drama of the Mara River, the footbridge. All fitting. Great management."

STUNNING! We had the best time at Ngare Serian. The team there is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. The game drives were so much fun and our guides, Judy and Oyango, were the best. We really enjoyed our time with them so much. Roche and Tanya made us feel so welcome and took excellent care of us. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants a unique safari experience with all the amenties and beauty."

Serian Ngare was perfect. This is a very special place and I expect that we will stay here every time we travel to Kenya."

Serian Ngare is a little slice of heaven. The accommodations are excellent, the food was divine, the service was top notch. It was made even better by the manager and the attentive dining staff."

The most stunning and VIP experience available on the Mara River with SUPERB meals clearly hand-crafted from local ingredients. They offered a wide selection over the days of delicious fare. The Hippo Tent is an unbelievable experience with a pod of 40 hippos resident at the foot of your bed. Fabulous! The camp's divinely structured sitting area is great at all times of the day with both indoor and outdoor seating. The firepit at night makes it vey special."
