Angama is the new safari lodge in the Masai Mara, and its panoramic views are the talk of the town! Balanced on the rim of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama overlooks the vast Mara plains. The meaning of ‘angama’ in Swahili is completely fitting, translating ‘to be suspended in mid-air’. Angama is a very high-end property with a ridiculous amount of facilities, but its downfall may be that it is not safari enough!


Angama is sat on the top of the escarpment, with over-hanging views down to game-filled plains of the Mara Triangle. The lodge is spread along three kopje’s of the Oloololo escarpment, with the third kopje a setting for one of the most memorable scenes from the film ‘Out of Africa’. Angama have continued the tradition, using the same kopje for private sundowners and romantic dinners.


Angama has two separate camps, North and South Camp, of 15 tents each. The camps are completely identical, with its own guest area and lounge, an open-plan bar, a library, an outdoor dining area and viewing platform that homes panoramic views across the great Kenyan plains. The camps are both self sufficient, but there are two things that the camps share. The first is a pavilion home to an infinity swimming pool, a well-equipped gym and a safari shop. The second is its incredible vast views, that each camp and every tent share.


The rooms are all sat on the rift valley’s rim, allowing the breath-taking views to be seen from the bed, the sitting area, the shower, the freestanding bath, or the private verandah. The roofs and three of the sides are a light coloured canvas, with the final side a glass frontage. The rooms are very unique, as the bed, sitting area and the freestanding bath are in the same ‘room’, offering a very open-plan and spacious feel. Both North and South camp both have two sets of interconnecting tents which are perfect for families.


With the Mara Triangle consistently delivering game all year round, Angama believe that guests can afford to pace a little slower, enjoying a more varied day on safari. Game drives in the Mara Triangle are therefore flexible, depending on the guests’ safari experience or interests specifically. No matter what age or fitness level, guests can also discover the Rift Valley on a walking safari with knowledgable and local guides. Additional activities include hot air balloon rides over the Masai Mara, visit local homesteads of the Masai warriors and private sundowners and dinners in exclusive settings.


Jaw-dropping views over the Mara, a lot of facilities for use

Its very modern design and decor is not for everyone
