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 10-metre / 33-foot wide glass front (perfect for watching the dawn hot-air balloons drift by) to the outstanding décor. 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. Add garden-to-table dining experiences and a photography studio run by a top wildlife photographer, and you can see why Angama Mara is sought-after by guests wanting a completely immersive experience.

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…

Rooms

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.

Facilities

Angama Mara prides itself on offering sublime service in exquisite surroundings. After lunch, spend the afternoon cooling off in the 12.5m / 40ft swimming pool, having a massage in your room or working out in the fitness centre. Or you can head to the professional photography studio where a top wildlife photographer will help you improve both the technical aspects and composition of your shots.

There is mobile phone and Wi-Fi connectivity, and Angama Mara also provides child-minding services and a complimentary laundry service to allow you to pack as lightly as possible.

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 Out of Africa picnic spot?

A special treat is a 'garden-to-table' dining experience in the shamba, Angama Mara's 'mini-farm' on the premises. Amid the thriving vegetable beds and rows of herbs, you will be reminded what truly fresh food tastes like.

Traveller Reviews

Cindy Tonnessen

•Beautiful in a different way. •It was kind of nice to be able to have a menu. •Despite the fact that it was a larger property/more hotel-like, I liked that the manager spent so much time with us and our butler was personable. •We saw tons of anim als here including our first lion. •I actually had read about this property in Travel & Leisure, but never put it together... the view was amazing. We met the owner’s daughter while we were there. •I liked the show they put on at sundowner time with the local tribe dancing. Also, liked that they had some local Masai women working/making beads at their gift shop.
