Balanced on the rim of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, above the breath-taking Mara Triangle, Angama Mara in Kenya offers some of the most spectacular views and best experiences of any safari lodge in Africa.
Having developed and operated safari lodges while at the helm of camp and lodge operator &Beyond, owners Steve and Nicky Fitzgerald were able to draw on their 30 years of experience to bring a fresh approach to both the safari experience and lodge design. More than anything, the focus at Angama Mara is on delighting guests and providing them with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Days are crafted around the activities guests are most interested in, whether that’s an all-day safari or some time spent in the spa.
The lodge’s ethos revolves not only around giving guests a sanctuary in which to unplug and unwind, but also around making a meaningful difference to the local communities and wildlife that call the Masai Mara home. The owner-managed approach ensures that guests and staff – whom the lodge refers to as ‘family’ – have the best possible experiences while at Angama. Plus, the Angama Foundation, to which guests are requested contribute to at the end of the stay, supports causes related to healthcare, education and conservation in responsible way.
Kenya’s Masai Mara is undoubtedly one of the best safari destinations in the world. And Angama Mara is certainly one of the best lodges in the Masai Mara.
