overview

Kenya has had a reputation as one of the most romantic and beautiful spots on Earth since Robert Redford and Meryl Streep whispered sweet nothings to each other there during Out of Africa’s famous picnic scene. Today, it is the site of one of East Africa's most outstanding lodges: Angama Mara has been carefully built on two kopjes on the edge of the Mara Triangle escarpment. As a guest of Angama Mara, you can re-enact your own once-in-a-lifetime picnic there, whether to propose or toast a honeymoon and the start of a new life together.

Everything about Angama Mara has been carefully calibrated: from the two camps where each of the 15 tents has a 10m / 33ft wide glass front (perfect for watching the dawn hot-air balloons drift by) to the outstanding décor (the designer decreed, ‘Death to scatter cushions!’). But this unique coming together of location, views and design is completed by outstanding game viewing (the croc-filled Mara River, scene of much drama during the annual wildebeest migration, is a mere 20 minutes away) and a total commitment to social welfare through the Oloololo Wildlife Community Trust.

The Swahili word ‘angama’ means ‘to be suspended in mid-air’ and it is a fitting name for your accommodation: each tent seems to hang on the edge of the Rift Valley, ensuring views that seem to go on forever. Each eco-friendly tent area is over 100sqm (nearly 1 000sqft) meaning you have complete privacy as you savour the rhythm of sunrises and sunsets over this ancient land…

Dining

Good food is a central focus at Angama Mara and all the drinking water is purified and bottled in glass containers on site to keep its footprint as low as possible. Private dinners may be arranged in your room or outdoors – how about dinner for two under the stars at that famous picnic spot?

Tented Suite

Angama Mara is split into two separate camps, each built on its own kopje and each consisting of 15 tents. There are four family suites in total (two per camp) and children up the age of 12 may share a triple-bed tent.

Each canvas tent as a 10m / 33ft wide front window that leads from the 70sqm / 750sqft interior onto the 35sqm / 375sqft deck. All beds are extra-length king-sized and all suites can be reconfigured with twin beds.

Rooms are equipped with fans, personal bars, safes, emergency sirens (the camp is unfenced to allow game to wander through), binoculars and a butler’s lobby. The en suite bathrooms have tubs, showers, separate toilets, twin vanities and hairdryers.

There is one suite suitable for disabled guests.

"One of the hottest new lodges in the Mara. The location of the camp itself is completely unique and fans of “Out of Africa” will immediately recognise the views! For those wanting to avoid the worst of the crowds, the Mara triangle laid out below Angama is the right place to be. This exclusive 5 star accommodation is sure to be a favourite with romantics!"
