Angama Mara

From: $1,250.00

Angama Mara is suspended on a ridge overlooking the infamous Mara Triangle affording breathtaking views of the countryside from each suite. The Siria – Oloololo Escarpment looks down onto the game reserve with game viewing just a 10 minute drive from the lodge. An ideal location, excellent child facilities and abundant luxury make this lodge an excellent choice for a family safari. Game drives, hot air balloons, walking and Migration crossing points all add to a fantastic experience.

Description

Angama Mara takes its name from the Swahili “angama” which means “suspended in the air’, and it truly is an incredible  position for the lodge. The 30 tented suites at Angama Mara each cover more than 100m

They are evenly divided between South Camp, which faces south-east, and North Camp, which looks directly east over the Maasai Mara.

Although the walls are canvas each suite feels more like a home and are spacious and very comfortably appointed. Glass fronting assures incredible morning views over the Masai Mara with a private deck and chairs for relaxing during ther hotter parts of the day.

Activities at Angama Mara are diverse and quite flexible. Most visitors concentrate on the morning and evening game drives while during the warmer parts of each day an infinity swimming pool and massages are available. A visit to the local village, (US$20 per person)  is extremely interesting into the local traditions and way of life of the local people.

The lodge has its own vegetable garden for fresh meal ingredients adding to the gourmet treats of each meal.

Each guest makes a US$10 per night donation which goes directly to the community and conservation projects in the Mara Triangle. To date a clinic and dispensary has been constructed and progress on a classroom is well under way.

Guides from the lodge are involved with educating the children from the local community about wildlife conservation and the benefits these will have for their generation. Anti-poaching is also taught as well as how to live harmoniously with wildlife and cattle. This is particularly important in this unfenced area which has such a high population of elephant and rhino.
