About Serian's Serengeti South
Decorated in classic Safari style with large beds and opulent rugs, the six lavish Meru style tents are deeply romantic. Swathes of cotton soften the luxuriant bedroom furniture. There are five individual tents and one family until, each with its own en-suite bathroom fitted with a bucket shower flowing with warm water in a generous spray, and flushing loos.
There are forty odd staff at the guest's beck and call, starting their day by serving you early morning tea in the comfort of your bed; organising your laundry and arranging menus with the chefs. Safari guides organise picnic breakfasts, lunches and sundowners with whatever drinks you require. Your tent Staff will also take any shoes that require cleaning in the evening returning them to you with your morning tea.
All meals are communal and evening dining is always around a large oval table in the mess tent, preceded by drinks and nibbles around the campfire under the starry African sky.
This handsome traditional East African camp serves as a base, from which you incredible access to hundreds of thousands of acres of acacia clad woodland. Set in the southern Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Serian’s Serengeti South sits well away from the crowds on the southernmost tip of the Serengeti’s short-grass plains, and within reach of the game-rich Ndutu area

When to go
The camp is open from mid-December to 1st May
Tanzania: Wildebeest birthing season: 3-400,000 calves are born on the open plains of NCA. All calves are dropped within 3-4 weeks - the theory being that predators can eat their fill, and thereafter the rest of the babies survive. Hence spectacular big cats and kills. Wildebeest micro-movements are subject to the vagaries of beautiful and dramatic savannah storms.
Tanzania: A great time to capture cheetah and wild dog on the hunt for wildebeest calves. The backdrop of vast open spaces and big skies is stunningly dramatic. The cultural element of Masai and their traditional lifestyle makes for magical photography.
The Tanzanian Government requires everybody over the age of 1 to have a valid Yellow Fever vaccination certificate if you are arriving from a country (even in transit) with a Yellow Fever risk.
Malarial protection is recommended.
