With the recent departure of Mark Gilks, we have great pleasure to introduce you all to our new “Serian” management team, Adrian Allen and Roisin Perrett. They will join our experienced front and back of house crew Kyembeni, Isaac and Sawa. Capable, reliable, bush personalities we know that they will all provide our clients with the personal service that is the essence of “Serian”.
Adrian was born and raised on a farm in Kenya. He was educated here and then went onto Michaelhouse in South-Africa to complete his higher education.
Finishing school Adrian stayed on in South Africa, to complete a professional guiding course (FGASA Level 1 & 2) and lodge management course, as well as advanced rifle handling. He also did some guiding work in Madikwe Game Reserve before returning home.
Back in Kenya Adrian started working at Sabuk lodge in Laikipia, hosting & guiding camel & walking safaris. These safaris would be anything from one night to two weeks long.
“Walking with dangerous game is a great way to experience wildlife. When you are on foot and approach elephants, it makes you realise the size and strength of the animal compared to when you have the safety of a vehicle”.
After Sabuk he joined Offbeat Safari's, where he built, managed, hosted and guided their luxury tented camp in Meru National Park. He stayed there for over three and half years, before leaving to do some relief guiding and managing work for some of the top lodges in Kenya, including Shompole, Loisaba, & Sosian.
Roisin is third generation Kenyan, and was educated both in Kenya and South Africa.
Her grandfather, Japper Evans, a local legend, set up the family business doing “old style” camel safari's, walking across the sahara in his mid seventies. Roisin’s parents took over, expanding these adventurous walking safari’s to locations well off the beaten track and as far north as Lake Turkana, journeying through the Matthews range, where vehicles struggle to go.
Helping on these safaris with the kitchen logistics and camping under the stars gave
her the experience that led her to her Uncle’s lodge “Sabuk” in Laikipia.
Roisin believes she will bring a new perspective to the camps as well as vibrant energy. She is a creative individual, interested in wildlife and camp management and looks forward to showing off the camps.
Both Roisin and Adrian have worked together a lot in the past, most recently within the Offbeat Camp in Meru.

With over 80 staff, a dedicated open-top safari vehicle, your own driver guide and spotter this is no idle boast: with nothing but nature and personal desire provide our flexible focus.
