About Serian's Nkorombo
The old adage “Location, Location, Location” surpasses all – Nkorombo has it in spades! The Maasai Mara made famous by the BBC’s “Big Cat Diaries” and more recently Disney’s “African Cats” is the predators prime real estate. Secreted away amongst a stand of wild olive and orange croton Alex Walker’s Nkorombo camp flanks a lively salt lick. A refuge for Black Rhino, Lion and Leopard cast about stalking a lavish overabundance of plucky prey.
A favoured space for professional photographers from around the world, this snug little bush camp is chock-full of singular character. Five tents command a view over the rushing Mara River, at once bursting with laughing hippo and languorous crocodile. True to it’s unpretentious origins, camp life is low-key and tranquil.
Nkorombo is Serian’s tented mobile camp, set on a private riverside site in the Masai Mara Reserve. This snug little setup has a fantastic view over the rushing Mara River, bursting with laughing hippo and languorous crocodile & is a prime spot to catch a glimpse of the wildebeest river-crossing points between July & November.
Nkorombo is all about location, location. It is cleverly located in the Masai Mara Game Reserve giving it the very best viewing in the Masai Mara. Guests staying from July to mid-November here have a good chance of seeing the wildebeest migration including one of the amazing river crossings as the herds move across the Mara River. Animals are never out of sight due to the gentle rolling grasslands and abundant wildlife.

When to go
January - March: The bliss of the Mara without anyone there. Hop on an easy flight over from Europe and come for their winter sunshine. The short grass makes for uninterrupted views, and it's a great time for cat viewings. Blissfully empty of crowds, spend undisturbed quality time with sightings. Take a balloon ride for amazing aerial shots, and go on night drives with night vision/thermal imaging for exciting nocturnal shots.
April - June: The tall grass sees cats climbing trees, and plentiful elephant in our private conservation area. Hippos make homes in mud puddles, and the whole area is deliciously quiet and empty of crowds. The river is full to bursting, gorgeous greenery, waving grass, big skies and dramatic storms - the landscape is in its element. Crisp clear mornings yield great light: get birds in breeding plumage, insects, flowers and macro interest on all the intricate details. A good time for unusual sightings, like lions in trees.
July - September: The herds arrive from Tanzania, and crossings begin. Big herds fill out the plains, swelled by the Loita population joining their numbers to the migration. The river drops, and wildebeest stampede across. The migration supplements the prey species, and makes for easy pickings for the big cats. The grazing thins out the grass and makes them easily visible.
October - December: This is a great period to take 7-10 days and enjoy having the river crossings to yourself.
