Welcome to a remarkable new safari lodge, and a project more than ten years in the making.
Balanced on the rim of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama Mara is the brainchild of Steve & Nicky Fitzgerald, and draws on their considerable experience from developing and operating safari lodges whilst at the helm of &Beyond. More than anything, Angama is founded on the underlying belief in guest delight, and brings together a fresh approach to both the safari experience and lodge design.
Angama Mara’s owner-managed approach to taking care of guests has been developed, tried and tested over many years. Here, days are crafted around what guests want to do. We understand that guests are seeking a quiet place, one where they can reconnect with the world again.
Angama Mara is also a place that is fun and filled with the unexpected. What we do is always authentic, honest and mindful that less is often so much more. And by taking care of guests we can make a meaningful difference to the communities and the wildlife around us.
Karen Blixen’s words,
“I am better at hello than goodbye”
reverberate through every action of Angama Mara’s staff.
What defines Angama Mara from other safari lodges is its location on a site almost without equal. Each tented suite enjoys a 180° view of the Maasai Mara below, possibly the best-known game reserve in the world, which consistently delivers extraordinary viewing of all of Africa’s great mammals, and is home to the Great Migration from July to October of each year.
Angama Mara guests descend a private track directly from the lodge to the beautiful, remote Mara Triangle. The Out of Africa back-story adds romance and nostalgia – when guests arrive at the lodge, they feel like they have been here before.
