My husband and I stayed at Serian last August. From the moment we landed at the dusty airstrip we knew we were in for a magical experience. Our Masai guides greeted us warmly and on the way to the camp we saw a cheetah with her cubs, dozing in the shade. She became "our cheetah" since we saw her multiple...

You cross the suspension bridge to another world... completely MAGICAL. The tents are the utmost in luxury and privacy. Ask for Tent #4 which is Hippo Tent and you will enjoy a pod of 40 hippos in front of your room relaxing the the Mara River. The food, service and attention to detail are impeccable. Ask for Gladys (guide) teaming...

There are not enough words to describe Serian Ngare. The location is fantastic, right on the Mara river with lots of trees and birdlife. There are only 4 tents which is great for a stay with family or friends. We appreciated the intimacy of the tents, all of them have river frontage and are hidden between trees. Our tent (...

We stayed for three nights at Ngare the beginning of November 2016. We had traveled from Tanzania after spending nine days on safari in several game parks and I was not sure how things could get any better. But Ngare was, by far, the highlight of our time in Africa. The rope bridge over a fast moving river, our tent...

Highly recommend this type of Safari experience. You are well taken care of and have nothing to fear at this 'tent cabin' setting. The staff were friendly and attentive. Food was excellent. Don't miss this location!

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at this fabulous camp for a second time in two years. I cannot wait to return as soon as possible and highly recommend this camp to future travelers. Everything about this operation is impeccable and I congratulate the staff for creating such a wonderful place to relax and experience nature.

Fabulous camp right on the river bank with snorting hippos and wonderful bird life! Mara North Conservancy is SO much better than Masai Mara Reserve. The roads are well maintained, the area is more lush, the game is more prevalent and the people so much more receptive. The safari guides are extremely knowledgeable. It rained very heavily one day, so...

Ngare Serian is the nicest camp I've had the pleasure of visiting. Fred the manager was a gracious host and made sure our experience exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent with freshly baked breads and desserts. The beverages were abundant and our glasses were always kept full. The tents are secluded and elegant with private outdoor showers and baths....

Ngare Serian is just the most beautiful and special camp. From the time you cross that bridge the first time, to when you cross the last time, it is the most wonderful experience - and one that you will never forget. It is so relaxed that you feel at home as soon as you arrive, and you just know that...

I truly do not even have the tiniest compliant to share about this camp. Everything from the tent, the service, staff, game drives and food were delightful. Every need is met as soon as you are greeted by the amazing staff. I can't brag enough about the meals. Every dish was so fresh, tasty and plentiful. I cant wait until...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ngare Serian (meaning peaceful, serene, calm river) adjoining Serian, though on the opposite bank of the Mara River. Boisterous rapids envelop each marquee in its own private cocoon, bathtubs on raised decks, allow you to wallow in total seclusion. Four huge traditional marquees; enormous lavish beds dominate the open fronted hardwood decks. Situated in the deep shade and encircled by hefty pods of laughing Hippo who provide palpable atmosphere. A charming deck exudes expressions of lazy days, the at ease ambience of the mess leaves one in no doubt of the abundant comfort. ... more   less
