Masai Mara, Kenya
USD 1,400Per Person Sharing
High above Kenya’s Maasai Mara, where some of the most romantic scenes from Out of Africa were filmed, Angama Mara comprises two separate and intimate camps, each encompassing 15 glass-fronted tented suites. Built on the edge of the Great Rift Valley on one of the most sought-after sites on the continent, Angama Mara offers heart-stopping views as far as the eye can see and a warm Kenyan welcome. The owner-run lodge is just a 10-minute drive on a private access road from the Mara Triangle, which is home to Africa’s great mammals and offers outstanding game viewing 12 months of the year. Tailor-made safari days are as action-packed or as gentle as guests choose them to be. Guests can experience hot air ballooning, walking safaris, garden-to-table lunches in the Shamba, hosted photographic safaris, various interactions with the fascinating Maasai culture that surrounds the lodge – or simply do nothing at all.

Descending down Angama Mara’s private road, 10-minutes later guests enter the Reserve. Even though there is game a-plenty around the lodge, the heart of the action takes place in one of Africa’s most iconic year-round Big Five destinations – the Mara Triangle.
Hot Air Ballooning
Watch the hot air balloon as it is inflated, with a steaming cup of Kenyan coffee in hand. Just before dawn lift off into the skies, witnessing the sunrise and a multitude of animals below while floating over the Mara. Come back down to earth for a champagne breakfast in the middle of the savannah’s endless plains.
Guests have access to over a huge tract of wilderness along the Siria Escarpment. Escorted by a Maasai naturalist guide, walks can be as long or short as guests prefer. Discover the smaller details – fascinating plants, birds, insects and animals and the role they play in traditional Maasai beliefs and customs.

Sundowners In The Maasai Boma
Traditional dawa (local mojito) in hand, toast the sun as it descends behind the Rift Valley from the vantage point of the lodge’s Sundowner Boma to the sound of Maasai warriors as they perform singing, dancing and jumping.
