Hats off to Team A

Angama turns 3... Tumefikisha umri wa miaka tatu – can you believe it?

Yes, we really are three years old this week. Looking back it feels like it was just yesterday when we welcomed our first guests and yet again it also feels like we have been perched here on the edge of the Great Rift Valley forever.

What has changed? Our beautiful buildings are disappearing behind thick foliage; our clinic is growing in reputation; our Shamba is blooming; the new Photographic Studio is delighting our guests; and our new road is as smooth as can be. But the heart of Angama Mara hasn’t changed at all: our staff is virtually the same team as opened the lodge; the guiding team is exactly the same; the joy with which we welcome and take care of our guests is timeless; and the wildlife in the Mara Triangle never fails to astound our guests.

New babies a-plenty and for some unknown reason at least five boys to every little girl born; our football team continues to win more than lose some; and we miss those beloved members of our family whose lives we cherish in our lovely Garden of Remembrance.

Thank you to our dear guests, the loyal followers of this blog, our neighbours in both the community and the Reserve, our travel partners, and to all those who believed we could do it when we didn’t believe it ourselves. And lastly, but most important of all, thank you dear Team A for making Steve’s dream come true: a lovely place for guests to visit and return home with their hearts filled with the love of Africa.

After more than 30 years in hospitality, starting with a small hotel at the foot of Africa and followed by a further couple of Cape hotels, most notably The Bay, and sixty plus safari lodges across Africa and India, Nicky has served more meals, puffed more cushions, filled more beds, trained more staff and opened more properties than she cares to remember. Nicky retired as Angama's CEO in July of 2022 and remains an advisor and delightfully opinionated member of the Board.
