Angama Mara – Kenyan Safari Lodge overlooking the Maasai Mara

A lovely safari lodge in Kenya


Welcome to Angama Mara, a remarkable owner-run safari lodge inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’. Located high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama Mara overlooks 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.

Days are as action-packed or as gentle as guests choose them to be. The Mara Triangle is home to Africa’s great mammals, a mere 10 minute drive from the lodge, and guests can experience hot air ballooning, walking safaris, cultural visits to neighbouring Maasai villages – or simply do nothing at all.



Angama Mara sits at the very heart of all safaris within East Africa: to the north Samburu, Mount Kenya and Laikipia; to the east Tsavo, Amboseli and Kenya’s acclaimed coastline; to the south Tanzania’s northern circuit which includes the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Manyara and Zanzibar; and to the west mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. Angama Safaris will seamlessly plan and execute your travels through the best the region has to offer.


Angama Mara offers tailor-made safari experiences with complete flexibility. Plan your perfect day on safari in the Maasai Mara.

A Warm Kenyan Welcome

At the heart of the lodge surely has to be the kind, warm and gentle team of Kenyans who take loving care of all the guests. The lodge family of safari guides, chefs, butlers, housekeepers and camp managers is driven by guest delight; the joy of being of service runs deep in this owner-run safari lodge
