Angama Mara

A delightful confluence of ‘Out of Africa’ traditional safari romance, contemporary style and wilderness, Angama Mara is a beautiful safari destination overlooking Kenya’s abundant Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Award-winning Angama Mara is perched 300 metres above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, with spectacular 180˚ views that stretch for miles across the pristine Masai Mara National Reserve. This remarkable setting ensures unrivalled exclusivity, with a private airfield and a track directly down into the reserve – a mere 10-minute drive away. The estate comprises 700 hectares directly bordering the Mara Triangle, with 1,2 km of Rift Valley frontage, its own forests and simply masses of wildlife.

A highly personal safari experience is guaranteed, with two intimate camps of just 15 tented suites each, tailor-made safari days and a famously warm Kenyan welcome. Each camp has its own very beautiful communal guest area, kitchen and dedicated staff, as well as two sets of interconnecting tents, perfect for families.

The architecturally dramatic communal areas were inspired by Nairobi’s legendary Muthaiga Club, built in 1917 and famously featured in the movie Out of Africa. The extensive deck hanging off the edge of the Rift Valley is the very best spot for relaxing, dining and drinking with a spectacular view. Angama Mara’s chefs prepare classic safari food – unfussy yet perfectly cooked and beautifully presented using delicious, fresh ingredients. The handsome brick-clad oval library, with WiFi and a collection of books and films on Africa, is a serene space perfect for private dining. The Pavilion, in the heart of the lodge and easily reached by footpath from both camps, is a shared space with endless views of the Mara. This is where you’ll find the safari boutique, a sparkling solar-heated swimming pool and the fitness room.

Each elegant tented safari suite is over 100m2 in size, with a floor-to-ceiling glass front granting you breathtaking Mara views from your bed, bath, sitting area, shower … and even the WC. Spacious wooden decks are the perfect spot for in-room dining or for relaxing on the red rocking chairs. Polished parquet floors, more splashes of Maasai red, a drinks cabinet, vanity with double basins, fragrant Africology guest amenities, separate toilet, writing desk with ample charging points, WiFi, a collection of East African books and a butler’s lobby – allowing for the discreet delivery of early morning tea and coffee – all add to your in-suite comfort and luxury.

Tailor-make your safari experiences in the Masai Mara to be as action-packed or as gentle as you choose. From rewarding Big Five safari game drives, hot air ballooning, walking safaris and cultural visits to neighbouring Maasai villages to simply relaxing beside the pool or on a quiet deck and taking in your glorious surrounds, Angama Mara has it all. The final touch is the intangible essence of true luxury: an in-house team that is honestly warm, welcoming, authentic and joyful.
