Description

  • A lovely safari lodge in Kenya

· BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH

  • Welcome to Angama, inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’. Located high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama Mara is a remarkable owner-run safari lodge overlooking Kenya’s Maasai Mara, considered by many as the loveliest game reserve on the continent.
  • Here guests will find a lodge where everything is as it ought to be: two intimate camps of just fifteen tented suites each, a private airfield and access to the Mara below, tailor-made safari days and a famously warm Kenyan welcome.

The lodge is perfectly complemented by Angama Safari Camp, an exclusive-use mobile tented camp sited deep in the Mara Triangle, and amidst the mega herds during the Great Migration.

Welcome to the Real World

A lovely safari lodge balanced on the rim of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, where the sky melts into the endless plains in a vista so wide it takes your breath away. Where the romance of canvas combines with dramatic guest areas, Angama Mara’s distinctive design breaks away from a traditional safari lodge style. You will certainly know that you have arrived.

TENTED SUITES

The Best Seat in the House

Architect duo Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, and Jan Allan, Kenya’s King of Canvas, designed Angama Mara’s elegant and classical tented suites with an 11-metre wide floor-to-ceiling glass front. Each tent has the same breathtaking view – no one is better than the last – and every day, the sunrise provides guests with early morning theatre as the hot air balloons float gently by.

TENTED SUITES AT A GLANCE

Angama Mara’s elegant tented suites have been designed to make the most of the extraordinary views of the Maasai Mara from every angle – from the bed, the bath, the sitting area, the shower and even the w/c. With the front of the tents featuring floor-to-ceiling glass, the roof and other three sides are canvas – classic safari olive on the outside and cream on the inside for romance. Spanning over 100 sqm, the tented suites all include spacious decks for in-room dining, massage treatments and red rocking chair safaris.

  • Decor features highly polished parquet floors with distinctive splashes of Maasai red and beautiful John Vogel woven screens
  • With brass finishes and Africology amenities, the double vanity features double basins adjacent to a separate w/c
  • A handsome drinks cabinet includes a personal bar and safe discreetly tucked away
  • The writing desk is equipped with ample charging points and WiFi
  • A butler’s lobby allows for the discreet delivery of early morning tea and coffee

  • Staying in the Maasai Mara

Literally hanging on the edge of Africa’s great rift valley, Angama Mara’s property evokes a dream like feeling of being suspended somewhere between heaven and earth. Its no surprise when scouting for breath-taking locations that harked back to the Kenya of Blixen and Finch-Hatton, this was the location selected for the most iconic scenes from Pollack’s much-loved film – Out of Africa

Adventure by day

ENDLESS WAYS TO SPEND YOUR TIME

Days are as action-packed or as gentle as you prefer. The Mara Triangle is home to Africa’s great mammals, a mere 15-minute drive from Angama Mara and guests can experience hot air ballooning, walking safaris, cultural visits to neighbouring Maasai villages – or simply relax and do nothing at all.

THE JOURNEY

Both Angama Mara and Angama Safari Camp are a 45–90 minute flight, depending on the number of stops, from Kenya’s capital of Nairobi. Guests can travel on the multiple daily scheduled flights from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport, or opt for a private and convenient charter straight from Nairobi’s main airport, Jomo Kenyatta International.

Various international airlines, as well as the national carrier, Kenya Airways, offer direct flights to Jomo Kenyatta International from hubs all over the world.

The Angama Signature Stay

HOW LONG IS THE PERFECT STAY?

You may wonder how many nights is the ideal stay at Angama Mara. The answer? Five nights and six days. Just enough time to see the Mara’s wildlife, enjoy the lodge’s many experiences and still have some quiet moments to yourself.

Day 1

Touchdown at Angama Mara’s private airfield where a warm Swahili welcome awaits you. Enjoy a delicious lunch while taking in the breath-taking view of the Mara below and then it’s time to settle into your tent. Meet your guide and begin your exploration of the Mara Triangle.

Day 2

Head out on a full-day exploration of a Mara. Enjoy a picnic breakfast somewhere in the middle of nowhere, and slowly make your way to the Tanzanian border. After an exciting day out, come back to the sundowner boma, sip on a gin and tonic while enjoying a sunset Maasai warrior performance.

Day 3

Join one of our Maasai naturalist guides and discover the Great Rift Valley on foot and then take a stroll back to your tent for a pampering massage on your private deck. Spend the afternoon relaxing in the Shamba, or take a slow afternoon safari.

Day 4

A very early start for a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Mara plains. Toast the morning’s adventure with bubbles and a delicious breakfast in the heart of the Reserve before a slow safari back to camp in time for lunch. Tonight, experience Angama Mara’s lantern-lit signature Bush BBQ.

Day 5

Head off on a game drive followed by breakfast on the deck. Lunch is a romantic affair: re-create that magical picnic scene from the classic movie, Out of Africa, on the very site it was filmed. Later, meet our Maasai Mamas in the Beading Studio and try your hand at at this ancient craft.
