Serian Nkorombo

Nkorombo is Serian’s tented mobile camp, set on a private riverside site in the Masai Mara Reserve. This snug little setup is chock-full of character with a view over the rushing Mara River, bursting with laughing hippo and languorous crocodile. Much like at Serian and Ngare Serian, life at Nkorombo is low-key and tranquil. Nestled among a stand of wild olive and orange croton, the camp is right next to a lively salt lick that regularly features black rhino, and lion and leopard on the lookout for kill… There is an abundance of prey in this area, and it’s the perfect spot for spectacular game viewing.

Need to Know

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… Our guides have an intimate familiarity with the landscape, and will translate and render it until you see it through their eyes.

BALLOONING

An incredible opportunity to see the beauty of the African bush from a different perspective: suspended in a basket in the sky.

BUSH LORE & CULTURE

The incredible perspective offered in an untamed setting beckons forth your primal instincts: your hearing, sight and smell all sharpen in response.

GAME DRIVES

We believe the way to get the most out of your game drive is that everyone is furnished with their own exclusive vehicle, and private spotter and guide.

PHOTOGRAPHY

There is nowhere quite like the middle of nowhere to succumb to a serious case of lens-envy. Safari goes hand-in-hand with photography.

NIGHT DRIVES

Nocturnal creatures emerge, the heavens are festooned with stars, and the landscape mutates into a whole other world by the light of the moon.

THE MIGRATION

One common misperception is that ‘the migration’ connotes the renowned wildebeest river crossings. This, however, is only a small part of the migratory cycle.


Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

Situated in a perfect location along the Mara River and just around the river-bend is one of the busiest wildebeest river-crossing points – a prime spot between July and November. There's also an on salt lick that features black rhino and plenty of predators, meaning there is an abundance of prey in this area, and it’s the perfect spot for spectacular
game viewing – and from June to November, it’s a front-row seat for watching the wildebeest as they make their crossings of the Mara river mere metres away.

AccommodationAccommodation

This one has more of a traditional tented feel than Serian and Ngare Serian – Nkorombo is thoroughly canvas, and touches like the time-honoured safari showers are a nod to the differences between fixed and mobile camps.

Designed to blend seamlessly into its stunning surrounds, it comprises five spacious ‘Selous style’ tents decked out in safari style of yore: leather, weathered wood, gauzy swathes of cotton, all lend accents to the essential, beautiful and comfortable style that defines Nkorombo. The en suite bathrooms blend wilderness and luxury, with flush toilets and bucket showers.
