Serian Serengeti: Interesting Facts
Serian Serengeti: In depth
Serian is a mobile camp that bi-annually moves from the north to the south of the Serengeti to follow the great migration of Wildebeest. The camp opens in the Kogatende region in the north of the Serengeti in June and will stay there until mid November. In December the great ship Serian moves down to set up camp in the south of the Serengeti. They set up camp in a remote location south of Lake Ndutu, which is actually positioned within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It is actually set nicely away from the other mobile camps allowing you to be in complete wilderness, a rare treat for a camp on the northern Serengeti circuit. If you want raw and wild on your Tanzanian safari holiday, then this is one of the best camps out there.
Serian Serengeti gives you the opportunity to be amazingly flexible with your safari trip. He encourages his guests to spend as much time as they can in the bush; and this is where he really sets the bar that the competition is still trying to reach. There are no set schedules for the safari trips at Serian. You be can up at dawn and back at dusk (the bush breakfasts and lunches are the best in Tanzania!). One of our favourite Serengeti Safaris to date!
The location of the camps changes slightly from year to year. You can be sure that they’ll always be in a beautifully secluded corner, that just so happens to be the best area for viewing game. For those in search of an adventure honeymoon, this is the one for you.
The camp is small and offers a really personal service. The main area is small and cosy, with comfy sofas and interesting books to dip into if you have free moment. The tents are traditional and luxurious and just what you want from an adventure out in the Tanzanian bush.

Olakira is one of the finest mobile camps in the Serengeti. It follows the same route as Serian in that it moves twice a year. From July to November they’re in the north of the Serengeti in the Karatu region. Then from December to March they move back down to fantastic spot in the Ndutu plains. At Olakira you are guaranteed great guiding, lovely food and a luxurious but authentic safari camp. Its position in the north is unbeatable as you can actually see the river crossing from the comfort of the camp.
Serengeti under Canvas is one of the most luxurious mobile tented camps in the Serengeti, owned and run by &Beyond who are one of the top safari companies in Tanzania in terms of guide quality and luxury. The camp is very mobile, tracking the migration at all times of the year in a small intimate camp.
Singita Faru Faru is one of our very favourite lodges. Run by Singita, the lodge is the lovechild of Paul Tudor Jones (a billionaire who runs them as his playthings!) and Faru Faru can be counted as probably the best safari lodge Tanzania. One of three of their supreme properties (Sasakwa and Sabora being the others) it forms part of the private Grumeti Reserves, situated in the west of the Serengeti. Yet because it’s a private park you can night drive, horse-ride and walk. A modern interpretation of a classic safari lodge, it has intimacy, luxury and excellent guiding in spades.
