Angama Mara – All Inclusive
What We Love
- The landscape, recognizable to film buffs as the setting for Meryl Streep and Robert Redford in Out of Africa
- The giraffes that wander the property undisturbed
- Noshing at the family-style nyama choma, a casual outdoor Kenyan barbecue that’s a meat-lover’s fantasy
What To Know
- It’s a 15-minute drive, down a private track, from the camp to the Maasai Mara Natural Reserve
- The suites are actually elegant tents: heavy canvas on three sides and glass on the fourth, each with its own wide wooden deck
- Rates are inclusive of safaris (excluding not park entrance fees), food, drinks, and even emergency medical evacuation insurance
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site
Angama Mara is the brainchild of Nicky and Steve Fitzgerald, who have opened more than 50 luxury safari lodges throughout the continent. Angama’s two camps each house 15 tents—privacy is paramount, so they’re well spaced out—that are heavy on luxury and light on “roughing it,” with parquet floors, drinks cabinets, double sinks, WiFi, and touches of chicly modern East African design. Thanks to that one glass wall, with its views down the Rift Valley’s Oloololo Escarpment, each tent has a “butler’s lobby” that allows for delivery of morning coffee without encroaching on guests’ privacy. While daily safaris should be the point of a visit here, the outdoor pool, masseuse, and those incredible views are tempting distractions.
In the Area
A 45-minute flight from Nairobi (the camp has its own airfield), Angama Mara is somewhat isolated, but there are plenty of things to do around the site. Exploring the Maasai Mara National Reserve on safari usually rewards visitors with views of gazelles, lions, cheetahs, elephants, impalas, and the occasional – and very rare – black rhino. Guests can take a picnic and head out for the day, or go on a walking or birding safari with a Maasai naturalist. Two reputable hot air balloon companies operate nearby, and an early morning aerial safari, complete with a champagne breakfast, is a popular way to start the day.
How to Get There
Everyone at Angama has the Sixth Sense. They always seem to know where you are and anticipate your every need. Truly Remarkable Service. The Tents are very spacious offering incredible 180-degree views of the Mara Triangle. The food was delicious and always enough choices. This should be the 8th wonder of the world. I am so happy to have visited here and plan on returning one day.
I don’t think its possible to properly express how wonderful our experience was at Angama Mara.
Angama Mara is overwhelming in its beauty and although the ultimate in luxury, understated in its delivery.
All of the staff had that wonderful touch of warm friendly hospitality, it did truly feel like a family.
I am sure everyone comes away with a different aspect that touched them. For us: the well recommended lunch at the Shamba, the start of the Wildebeest migration, the hot air ballooning and the simply incredible view from breakfast. And of course to reiterate, it’s the people that really make it – I said in the visitors book that this place infiltrates your soul – it really does.
A special mention of Roy, Titus and John, who looked after us incredibly well!
If you are thinking of booking a trip, close your eyes and do it, you will not regret it!
I have no words. Simply beautiful, refreshing, amazing , gorgeous, best customer service in kenya, the people are lovely even the animals are lovely🤗🤗🤗🤗😊😊
I would go to angama every year and I highly recommend
Angama Mara is an amazing lodge. You feel like you are in the clouds. A view like from an airplane. You will be in a lodge of the highest level. And best of all is the staff. The staff is fantastic. The stuff will look after you like you are a part of the family. You will not wanna leave!!!
I have done several safaris to Africa and I never expected to find such a magic place like Angama Mara Lodge located on top of a hill with the most espectacular views to the endless savannah of the Maasai Mara Triangle. The food was simply delicious, all the staff is very friendly and always willing to please you, the gym has the most amazing views, the swimming pool is just perfect, however!!! my only complain is that the beautifully decorated and spacious - bugs free tents get extremely hot right after lunch when you want to have a little nap before continuing the afternoon game drive. They should definitely put air conditioners and regulate them to work at least from 12 to 4:00pm. It is impossible to have a rest in what becomes a pure oven!!
