I ended my 12 day safari at Ngare and it was perfection. The tents are nicely spaced and well appointed-just the right balance of camping and comfort.

About Serian's Ngare Camp
Located in the Mara North Conservancy and accessed by a rope bridge, Ngare Serian is an intimate camp on the banks of the Mara River. The camp, consisting of just 4 beautifully appointed tents, can also be booked on an exclusive basis for family gatherings or close friends.
Ngare Serian Camp is open sided, elevated on a dark wood platform and lit at night by hurricane lamps. The mess tent features a lounge, a dining area, a bar, large decking and a fire-pit. Chic, subtle - and symbolised by low hand-made tables and comfortable seating - the tent is intended to provide guests with a peaceful, remarkable and invigorating environment. The food is a tasty farmhouse cuisine and the service excellent.
This refuge of serenity may not suit those who seek tame, barren surroundings - Rather, it fits the more audacious voyager who seeks out safari's real character. Because of its intimate and select character, Ngare Serian is suited to being set aside in its entirety for family gatherings or close friends on a private basis. Ngare Serian consists of only 4 tents, and this intimacy makes it perfect for hosting a family holiday, or gathering a group of friends. The tents are dotted along the riverbank, decked out in style with Zanzibar four-poster beds and open bathrooms overlooking pods of hippo. Take a leaf out the hippos’ book: lounge languidly, soaking up the sights and sounds of the bush from the bathtub built into your veranda decking.
The Ngare Serian Camp is situated in the Mara North Conservancy on the banks of the Mara River just outside Mara proper.

When to go
January - March: Enjoy the bliss of the Mara without anyone there. Come for winter sunshine.
April - June: Serian is a special space at this time because of the ridge that is the backbone of the MNC, which drains the short-grass plains making for fantastic game. Beautiful birds in their mating plumage plus a great time to get a good secret season discount.
July - September: The key to this period is realising that it's not all about the river… It may be busy, but there's always a quiet corner: if you move away from the masses, you'll find a secret spot.
October - December: This is a great period to take 7-10 days and enjoy having the river crossings to yourself. MNC and MMNR yield some of the most phenomenal game viewing you can experience - take the time to come and see it.
