There is little that is conventional about the creation of Angama Mara, with views that stretch for miles across the Maasai Mara 300 meters below. You will experience unrivalled exclusivity, with a private airfield, and a track directly down into the Reserve – a mere 10-minute drive. The 700 hectare site directly borders the Mara Triangle, with 1.2 km of Rift Valley frontage, it’s own forests and game a-plenty.
Guests instantly connect with the romance of the setting, where some of the loveliest scenes from the movie Out of Africa were filmed.
Angara has two totally separate camps of just 15 tents each, every one with magnificent 180° views.
The two camps are set alongside one another, each with its own guest area, kitchen and dedicated staff.
Each camp has two sets of interconnecting tents, perfect for families. 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.
The dramatic guest areas are for dining, drinking and lounging, and include a handsome brick-clad library.
The Pavilion, set between the two camps, is home to the Safari Shop, a swimming pool (12 x 6m), and the Fitness Room – guests never need to walk more than 10 minutes to go anywhere. The lodge is serviced by a private, hard- top airfield – just a 5-minute drive away.
Angama Mara’s experienced guides tailor-make their guest’s safari days.. First and foremost, the guides are storytellers, and interpret the Mara in a way that immerses their guests in the surroundings: a safari at Angama Mara is about an overwhelming sense of place.
