Nkorombo is Serian’s tented mobile camp which is set on a private riverside site in the Masai Mara Reserve. Small and characterful with a view over the Mara River and a resident pop of hippos, Nkrombo 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 which regularly attracts black rhino, lion and leopard along with varied plains game. There is an abundance of prey in this area, and it’s the perfect spot for spectacular game viewing.
Designed to blend seamlessly into its stunning surrounds the camp consists of five vast ‘Selous style’ tents decked out in traditional safari style with beds, carpets and tray tables.
The en suite bathrooms blend wilderness and luxury, with flush toilets and bucket showers.
Meals in camp are interspersed with picnics out in the bush, and there are no schedules to be met. 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 an ice-cold sundowner.
Nkorombo’s cosiness makes it perfect for exclusive use and the plethora of wildlife and riverside scenery especially has proven irresistible to serious photographers.
From June to November, Nkorombo is perfect for watching the wildebeest and zebra as they make their crossings of the Mara river mere metres away. The hum of energy is palpable as the herds start to stampede toward the river.
