Serian’s Serengeti North is a traditional, mobile camp situated in the immense, rolling plains of the far-northern Serengeti, Tanzania. Accessed via light aircraft from the nearby Kogatende airstrip, the camp’s remote location offers a superb abundance of wildlife under wide open skies. The camp is open from June to November, with the attraction being the intense drama of the wildebeests’ river crossings, along with incredible game-viewing opportunities around the Lamai Wedge and Wogakuria Kopjes.
The mess tent houses an elegant central dining table where delicious food is served. The facilities are equally impressive and the accommodation comprises eight spacious tents, each with an en-suite bathroom including bucket shower, flushing toilet and 24 hour generator-powered electricity. Tented suites for groups or families consist of two tents joined by a communal living space. Parents can sleep in one tent and children in the other, with the option for a third child to sleep comfortably in the living room. Children of all ages are welcome, although note that animals are free to roam through the camp and whilst they’re unlikely to approach humans or tents, children should remain under the watchful eye of their parents at all times.
Activities here are naturally centred on the phenomenal river crossings which are thrilling to watch as animals fall and crocodiles claim their prey. The camp is part of the ‘Alex Walker’s Serian’ portfolio which has a strong focus on private game drives in exclusive 4WD safari vehicles, each with their own dedicated private guide and spotter, affording guests and families the freedom to tailor itineraries to suit their needs. Early-morning walking safaris are also possible, offering guests the chance to get closer to the wildlife and experience nature from a more intimate perspective. At times, adventure fly-camping can also be incorporated into the stay, providing the unique opportunity to sleep out in the bush and experience the wilderness in a completely different way.
Serian’s Serengeti North is a delightful place to stay, offering a traditional safari experience combined with stylish modern convenience in a truly remote location. The camp is at the higher end of the price spectrum but the comfortable accommodation, attentive staff and highly professional guiding combined with spectacular wildlife-on-tap make for a wonderful stay.
The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Namibia trip was fantastic!
Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).
As for specifics:
This place was the best!
Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.
The only (slight) disappointment.
Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.
Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.
Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
A nice stopping point on the drive.
An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
The staff was on par with Okonjima.
2 days were perfect.
Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
They represent Tourdust well!
Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
