Open from mid-June to mid-November, this camp is one of four Serian’s Serengeti properties. The company Serian is owned by Alex Walker, renowned for his exceptionally good guiding. If you would like to witness the greatest wildlife show on Earth in the company of Alex and his first-rate team, Serengeti North is a fantastic option for you!
ACCESS & LOCATION
Ideal for checking out all the majestic mayhem of the Migration from a serene setting, Serian’s Serengeti North Camp is located in the far north of the Serengeti plains, just 2km from the Mara River and within minutes of the major crossing points.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The camp is positioned in the far north of the Serengeti, upon its sprawling plains. The mess tent is set up in the shade of acacia trees, providing some cooling shade. A few chairs occupy a long veranda, where guests can sit and take in the views. Inside, there are two areas – the lounge and the dining space – separated by the bar. The lounge contains some comfortable velvety sofas and fleece-topped leather pouffes, all around a chunky wooden coffee table strewn with interesting reading material. There are a couple of smaller occasional tables too, as well as a snug rug laid out on the canvas floor. The walls are covered with wildlife drawings, preparing you for those spectacular scenes just a 10-minute drive away! Further wildlife artwork adorns the walls of the dining area, which has a large table and director’s chairs around it, ready for communal meals. A short distance from the mess tent, is the firepit area, the perfect place for enjoying a drink or two and getting to know your fellow travellers!
Guest accommodation at Serengeti North consists of eight tents, connected to the mess tent via paths cleared through the grasses. Each has its own veranda, with chairs, a small table, and a daybed. The interiors include a double bed with wrought iron frame, rather ornate bedside tables with lighting, a writing desk and chair, a large rug, and plenty of storage space. The en-suite facilities are at the back of each tent and comprise flush toilet, washstand with basin and mirror, and classic bucket shower! Overall, the tents have a very traditional feel. Apart from a few splashes of colour, from the pictures built into the bedside tables, the décor is neutral, encouraging guests to focus on the surrounding bushscape!
ACTIVITIES AT serian’s Serengeti North Camp:
Back at the campsite, staff members provide a lovely personalised service, creating a real ‘home from home’ feel. The word ‘Serian’ translates as ‘serene’ and this seems particularly apt at Serengeti North, which is a peaceful base from which to ride out and marvel at Mother Nature! The food and drink is delicious and enjoyed as communal meals in the mess tent, with either Alex or another of the awesome guides hosting the table. Electricity is provided by the camp’s 24-hour generator, but there is no Wi-Fi or mobile phone signal. We recommend staying for a minimum of four nights here, to really make the most of your stay!
*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
