Reviews of Angama Mara



“I had high expectations for Angama and they were completely surpassed. I can’t imagine a more perfect place to stay. The rooms are beautifully designed and appointed. Everything you could possibly want is available in your tent, including a heated bed for chilly nights and brisk mornings. Heaven! The view is beyond belief. The food is incredible. But the best part of Angama is definitely the people. Sedara and Violet are warm, caring, attentive, and create an atmosphere that makes you feel right at home and totally spoiled. Sedara is fun, charming, and answered my millions of questions with equal degrees of humour and expertise. My guide, Lemaalo, is a gem. He is a complete professional and unbelievably knowledgeable about every aspect of the Mara. His patience and kindness make him a pleasure to be around. I learned so much from him–such a brilliant guy. I could go on forever about the phenomenal once-in-a-lifetime experiences that Lemaalo provided, but, really, you should go find out for yourself. You won’t regret it, nor will you want to leave.”

“My husband and I spent three nights at this BEAUTIFUL camp. The rooms are perfect. The service flawless. The food exceptional. Above all else was the guiding! Whether on foot/in a jeep or even a hot air balloon we saw 100s of beautiful animals. I will sing its praises to anyone willing to listen!”

“We’ll be returning to Angama forever.”

“Without doubt the most magical hotel we’ve ever stayed in. We arrived with very high expectations, and they were met and exceeded… literally from the first moment we set foot in our room. My wife and I chose Angama as a destination for our honeymoon after a recommendation from a coworker in New York, who told us it was her favorite place in the world. Our travel guide (TrueAfrica Safaris) managed to make three nights work with our budget… and our only regret is not staying for longer. George (our Butler) was incredibly friendly and very accommodating. Even waking up well before sunrise to serve us our morning coffee. He and the other staff greeted us several times a day with huge smiles. After many many hours on safari, it felt like coming home…. Read full review”

“Heaven On Earth!”

“Don’t know where to start or how to end this review. Everything, Everyone and The Lodge itself is spectacular. If your considering don’t consider, just book it and you won’t regret it. The views, the rooms, the surrounding, the game drives, the staff, the food was above and beyond amazing. I worked with Tamsin arranging everything before our arrival and she was wonderful to work with. Sophie was our game driver and she was amazing! She knows the Mara like the back of her hand and could tackle some of the rain soaked tracks, where others wouldn’t dare to venture. She is a true professional in the Mara. The rooms are stocked with Gin, Whiskey and wine which is all included. There is a beautiful pool with views… Read full review”

“Above and beyond in every way”

“We booked Angama Mara for a fairly last minute safari after seeing it come up a few places online. We are SO glad we chose this spot – the location, staff and experience was top notch every step of the way. We flew into the Angama airstrip which is maybe 5 minutes from the lodge. Our guide, Sophie, met us there and brought us to the North Camp for our stay. She was already aware that we were excited to start our game drives and proactively scheduled a time to leave for our afternoon drive with us on our way to the camp. Upon arrival, we were greeted by 4-5 staff members and introduced to them all – Josephat, the manager, Adlight, our butler, Felix and others. Josephat welcomed us in and offered drinks while explaining the property and offerings while our bags were taken to our tent. The common areas are beautiful and the views from this “dining and living room” area are stunning… Read full review”
