Angama, inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’. Located high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama Mara is a remarkable owner-run safari lodge overlooking Kenya’s Maasai Mara, considered by many as the loveliest game reserve on the continent.

Here guests will find a lodge where everything is as it ought to be: two intimate camps of just fifteen tented suites each, a private airfield and access to the Mara below, tailor-made safari days and a famously warm Kenyan welcome.

The lodge is perfectly complemented by Angama Safari Camp, an exclusive-use mobile tented camp sited deep in the Mara Triangle, and amidst the mega herds during the Great Migration.

Guests staying at Angama Mara are faced with many choices of how they wish to spend their day. Sunrise hot-air balloon safaris, photographing Africa’s abundant wildlife, walking on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, or visiting a Maasai family in their home – these are just a few of the adventures on offer.


Every Angama Mara tented suite hangs suspended on the edge of Africa’s Rift Valley 300m above the floor of the Maasai Mara. Design inspiration has been drawn from sweeping canvas, an elegant simplicity, romance, and the all-encompassing view of the Mara below.

Each Suite features a Super Kingsize bed, ceiling fans, bath, shower, twin vanity unit, separate w/c, personal bar, in-room safe, telephone / intercom, hairdryer and binoculars. There is a laundry service and in-room dining is possible. One tented suite is fully wheelchair enabled. One child can share with 2 adults in one suite, or families can take 2 inter-connecting suites.
