Description

Angama Mara

Masai Mara National Reserve

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 100 square meters of space with incredible views over the surrounding landscape.

The suites 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 the 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.

Each guest makes a US$10 per night donation which goes directly to the community and conservation projects in the Mara Triangle.

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 un-fenced area which has such a high population of elephant and rhino.

Read our Country Information for advice on travel to Kenya. If you need accommodation in Nairobi we highly recommend Giraffe Manor.

If you would like to experience luxury in the heart of the Masai Mara our expert advice would be to spend at least three days at Governors’ Private Camp or Serengeti Bushtops.

The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust works to protect the ecosystems and biodiversity of East Africa through conservation practices that directly benefit the local communities.
