Welcome to Angama Mara, a remarkable owner-run safari lodge inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’. Located high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama Mara overlooks 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.
What defines Angama Mara from other safari lodges is its location on a site almost without equal. Each tented suite enjoys a 180° view of the Maasai Mara below, possibly the best-known game reserve in the world, which consistently delivers extraordinary viewing of all of Africa’s great mammals, and is home to the Great Migration from July to October of each year.
Angama Mara guests descend a private track directly from the lodge to the beautiful, remote Mara Triangle. The Out of Africa back-story adds romance and nostalgia – when guests arrive at the lodge, they feel like they have been here before.
With door-to-door private flights, head north to Segera Retreat for 3 nights, a private ranch and oasis in Laikipia - and the permanent home of G-AAMY, the Gypsy Moth featured in Out of Africa.
Spend 5 nights exploring Tanzania's famed Northern Circuit, starting in the Ngorongoro Crater, a volcanic caldera teeming with wildlife, before heading to the open plains of the mighty Serengeti.
The perfect post safari wrap-up: enjoy 5 nights relaxing on the private island of Mnemba, a barefoot paradise off the coast of Zanzibar.
Start your East African safari in Rwanda: travelling by helicopter spend 5 nights trekking for chimpanzees, golden monkeys and the greatest ape of them all, the mountain gorilla.
