    • Year-round the wildlife here is incredible, though, with pods of hippos wallowing in the mud, herds of elephants, prides of lazy lions lounging on the top of the rocky kopjes and cheetah that have even been known to sit on the roof of a safari vehicle as a vantage point. 
    • For a real treat, take to the skies in a hot air balloon to get an aerial perspective. Serian adds to your traditional safari experience by offering a glimpse into traditional Masaai life by offering warrior training, great for teens - going jogging with the Maasai, learning to throw spears and earning your place in the tribe!

    • As you fly over, gaze down at the sweeping plains dotted with acacia trees, and as you descend see scatterings of giraffes and elephants ambling over the Savannah.
    • Upon arrival at the airstrip, your guide will greet you and take you game driving to your home for the next 3 nights, Speke’s Camp. This authentic tented camp is positioned on a private concession bordering the main reserve and is close to the Musiara Swamp, which is teeming with wildlife.
