Angama Mara Safari Camp

 

Kenya's newest safari camp is located in the heart of the Masai Mara, one of our all-time favorite safari destinations

 
 
 

Here at Outside GO, we've long been fans of a number of beautiful lodges in Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve. Introducing the newest addition—Angama Mara. Inspired by the Swahili word meaning "suspended in mid-air," this owner-run safari lodge is a stunning collection of 15 tented suites overlooking the Great Rift Valley. Between having an ideal safari location, first-class accommodations, and the ability to craft your stay exactly how you wish, Angama Mara has officially carved out a spot on the very top of our list.

 

Between Heaven and Earth

 

Angama Mara sits delicately balanced on the side of an escarpment nearly 1,000 feet above the plains of the Masai Mara. With a palpable sensation that there is no one around for miles (you fly into a private airstrip upon arrival), the camp provides unrivaled exclusivity. Each of the canvas tents enjoys unparalleled views with thoughtfully designed touches that make many of the guests feel a sense of coming home, accompanied by warm shared areas including a library, just if you're feeling inspired to delve into Out of Africa between stolen glances at the tremendous view.

 
 
 
 

The masai mara

 

The Masai Mara is known around the world as one of Africa's best national game reserves. Part of the Greater Mara Ecosystem, the 583-square-mile chunk of Africa is teeming with exceptional populations of lion, leopard, cheetah, herds-a-thousand-strong of buffalo, the rare black rhino and of course the thriving elephants. In approximately July of each year, the Great Migration arrives for an annual four-month stay. Angama Mara is located specifically beneath the Oloololo escarpment known as the Mara Triangle—the most productive part of the entire ecosystem. 

 
 
 
 

PLAN YOUR PERFECT DAY

 

All of our hand-picked outposts offer options—that's why we send you there! Angama Mara shares this philosophy. If your perfect day is a once-in-a-lifetime safari, you can imagine an itinerary something like this: Awake early for a game drive with prime wildlife viewing and gorgeous early light. You'll be one of the first people in the Mara Triangle as the sun comes up, catching nocturnal predators as they wind down their nightly pursuits. Mid-morning, enjoy a picnic breakfast followed by a quiet sitting with a family of elephants. The afternoon will be followed by more wild game viewing and an open-air massage, and that evening is yours to unwind in your bath-with-a-view, glass of wine close at hand.

 
 
 
 

FIRST-HAND MAASAI CULTURE

 

If your idea of visiting Africa isn't complete without a cultural experience, Angama Mara meets and exceeds these expectations. Your customizable itinerary could look something like this: Start your day with a jog around the camp with a Kenyan runner, followed by a visit to the neighboring Maasai village. Lunch will be a selection of Kenyan's finest local produce (although it might come in the form of a hamburger). After an afternoon safari, toast the sunset and a terrific day's adventure in a traditional half-moon Maasai boma.
