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 (... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

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... More

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
