Things to do at Alex Walker's Serian
The flexibility to do as you please is a bonus when staying at The Original. You can arrange your desired activities according to your own schedule.
Enjoy a private vehicle with your own highly trained guide and spotter. Game drives have no set timing. You may stay out for as long as you please and return to camp whenever you desire. Unlike in many other wilderness areas, off-road driving is allowed in the Mara. Never miss a moment of the action as you follow hunting lions in pursuit or linger as elephants graze alongside you.
Stretch your legs with a two- to three-hour outing with an experienced, armed walking guide, learning more about the smaller wildlife and the subtle signs often missed from the high seat of your 4×4.
Night drives are a great opportunity to spot the wilderness that hide from the harsh heat of the day and come out to hunt and play under the cover of nightfall. Adjust to the darkness and enjoy the thrill of picking out skulking predators, such as lions, as the spotlight reflects off their eyes.
Hot-air balloon safaris
Take to the skies in a hot-air balloon and watch the Mara come to life in the early hours of the morning. Sail above the Mara River and spot yawning hippos, before setting back down on ground for a splendid champagne breakfast.
If you want to push the boundaries of adventure and immerse yourself in the wild, enjoy a night out fly camping around a campfire.
Dining in the bush
Eating a meal in the middle of the bush is the ultimate in exclusive dining experiences. At the head of the table, your fabulous hosts will share stories of life in the wilderness and make you feel immediately like family.
