All About Angama

The Angama Way

Swahili for ‘suspended in mid-air’, Angama offers high-touch safari experiences in one-of-a-kind locations across East Africa. Inn-keepers at heart, our team finds joy in looking after guests and reconnecting them with the natural world.

To create opportunities and make a tangible difference to the communities and ecosystems we operate in, we lease land from local landowners, hire locally and support education, healthcare & conservation projects through our Foundation.

Our properties are relaxed and gentle places — but also filled with fun and a dash of the unexpected. What we do is always honest, mindful that less is often so much more. And with no set schedules, days are simply crafted around what our guests would like to do.

Angama Mara

It all started on the rim of Africa’s Great Rift Valley with a passion project more than ten years in the making.

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 was founded on the underlying belief in guest delight, with a fresh take on both the safari experience and lodge design.
