Serian's Serengeti South; a seasonal camp we operate in the deep south of the Serengeti, based from Kakessio in the NCA. The area is dominated by vast apparently infinite short grass plains, the Maswa woodlands to the south and west, the dramatic Gol Mountains and open plains of Loliondo to the east. The southern plains are at their best between mid December and late May when this whole area comes alive as millions of newborn wildebeest move onto the plains in search of the fresh green grass after the first rains.
Immense panoramas are awash with voluble hordes of wildebeest, brim full of thespian drama. The prime focus is the "birthing season" young calves delight in their gangly mobility, vast concentrations of wildebeest mix with other ungulates. Daily indulgent Lion, Cheetah and Wild Dog pursue and delight in the smorgasbord of nomadic mega herds.
8 large en-suite tents, decorated in classic safari style with large beds and opulent rugs. Swathes of cotton soften the luxuriant bedroom furniture whilst the bathroom houses flush toilets, safari showers and vases of wild flowers conjure up idyllic East Africa. The custom made tents have two skins with shade cloth softening the heat of the noonday sun. All tents are positioned to take advantage of the camps immense views north over the lamai wedge.
The bathrooms are provided with fresh natural organic toiletries made in Kenya by "Cinnabar Green" and each tent has its own dedicated 240 volt power outlets so that you can charge camera batteries etc at any time of day.
Roaming like nomads we settle camp at close quarters to this great stage show. From December to late April, Serian's Serengeti South sits in the deep shade of umbrella tree's, a bay of tranquility on the edge of the short grass plains. A cultural haven with very traditional Masai, Mangati and Hadzabe tribesmen, a walker's paradise with plenty of space to roam. Well suited to the adventurer who seeks out quiet spaces.
