Angama Mara is a remarkable 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.
The lodge consists of two totally separate and intimate camps of just fifteen tented suites each and a guest area sitting atop one of the kopje’s, 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. The architecture is filled with drama, the red brickwork inspired by local Maasai techniques.
The spacious tented suites have been designed for guests’ comfort and are reminiscent of a classical African safari, each with a view more lovely than the last. Every detail has been considered: end-to-end glass frontage, sweeping canvas, decks overhanging the Mara, and inside, polished parquet floors and just the right amount of furniture.
Guests staying at Angama Mara are faced with many choices of how they wish to spend their day. Sunrise hot-air balloon safaris, photographing Africa’s abundant wildlife, walking on the edge of the Great Rift Valley or visiting a Maasai family in their home – these are just a few of the adventures on offer.
