1. Family Vacations

Family time = Fun time



Our fondest memories of well spent family time always revolve around summers. Summer is a time when the entire family can enjoy a stress free vacation and bond freely away from the burden of their mundane daily activities. It is important to give attention to the needs of your loved ones during your vacations. Having elders also as a part of your vacation will make it that much more fun. Care for your Elders by ensuring that you plan your trip with adequate breaks so that they too can enjoy the vacation at their own pace. Ensure that their medication needs are also taken care of. Children and toddlers need to be supervised to keep them away from potential hazards. They should also be adequately occupied with fun games and activities so that they do not feel left out and enjoy the vacation with the family.


2. Animals sightings & water activities in summer

Summer is that time of the year when the arid conditions force wildlife (the hunters and the hunted alike) to come out of their comfort zone in search of water sources. This condition presents you with the possibility of experiencing wildlife from up close which would otherwise be difficult. Summer also presents you with a unique scenario when the temperature of the water body is ideal in the mornings for some fun water activities. This is something you should surely not miss out on.


3. Food : Some specialities to look forward to at The Serai

However, if you decide to step out to experience the local delicacies in and around The Serai, be sure to talk to the resort managers or the concierge in advance to find something to suit your taste and avoid any unpleasant surprises. Also ensure that you have light meals and freshly cooked food to cope with the heat of the summer.
