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.

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.
We make sure to look after our team, who look after our guests so well
