Welcome to a remarkable safari lodge– and a passion project more than ten years in the making.
Balanced on the rim of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Angama Mara is the culmination of Steve & Nicky Fitzgerald’s incredible careers developing and operating safari lodges all over the world at the helm of &Beyond. More than anything, Angama is founded on the underlying belief in guest delight, with a fresh take on both the safari experience and lodge design.
Meet the Owners
Renowned in the industry for their involvement in some of the world’s finest safari lodges, husband and wife Steve & Nicky Fitzgerald saved their best for last. After delighting top-end travellers for over 30 years, the beauty of the Angama Mara site drew them out of retirement.
Meet the Team
Angama staff members are chosen because they love being of service to others – Kenyans have this deep in their DNA. The staff village was built with the same attention to detail as the guest accommodation. Angama Mara takes care of our staff, and the staff takes care of our guests.
Meet the Creators
Architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, and interior designer Annemarie Meintjes pushed every boundary while bringing Angama Mara to life. The goal was to find a balance between a fresh approach to lodge design and staying true to what guests expect when going on safari.
Our approach to taking care of guests has been developed, tried and tested over 30 years. Here, days are crafted around what guests want to do. We understand that guests are seeking a quiet place where they can reconnect with the world again. Angama Mara is also a place of fun, filled with the unexpected but always authentic, honest and mindful that less is often so much more. And only through taking care of our guests well can we do good for those around us.

“I am better at hello than goodbye”
…we hope you will be too, at Angama Mara.
