Serian’s Serengeti is a mobile camp, and its movement is governed by the wildebeest migration. From mid-June to mid-November, they – along with 1.6 million gnus – are situated in the far north of the Serengeti plains. The beauty of Northern Serengeti is it is the heart of the crossings, and in this respect, it is all about location. The camp is set a mere 2 kilometres from the Mara River, within minutes of the major crossing points.

The camp strikes the perfect balance between colonial camping style, and elegant accents of comfort – home away from home, in the form of six spacious, lavish tents. Each is complemented by tasteful décor that lends a touch of sumptuousness to the interiors. The en suite bathrooms include a bucket shower and a flushing toilet – classic safari simplicity with a nod to life’s little comforts.

Watching a crossing is something that is thrilling to the core: the intensity, the trauma and the sheer spectacle, is all-absorbing, and resonates on a deep and primal level. Hundreds of thousands of pounding hooves set the tempo, and the nasal grunting hits a frenetic pitch: creatures cease to be individuals and operate as a swarm, teeming unseeingly toward the water. The crush, dust and panic as they launch themselves in and struggle across the current – claimed by crocodiles and crushed by each other – epitomises the quintessential rawness of nature’s character.

The cornerstone of a safari experience at Serian is that each group has their own open-top safari vehicle, and their own dedicated guide and spotter. The freedom this grants you is key to getting the most out of your stay: go where the day takes you, be it a full day out with a picnic in the wilderness, or a lazy siesta back in camp before that ice-cold sundowner… The guides have an intimate familiarity with the landscape, and will translate and render it until you see it through their eyes.

Walking safaris are also a beautiful way to explore: set off with the first light in the company of Alex or one of the other guides, and tune into the whispering savannah silence away from the hum of a vehicle. As you ease into a slower pace, you’ll notice your senses picking up on the finer details: the intricate perfections of a skeleton, a map of secret paw prints, a microcosmic universe in a termite mound.
