Our Guests Never Go Hungry

Planning menus, sourcing ingredients, preparing delicious dishes and serving them to our guests in a dazzling choice of settings is what the Angama team loves to do best. No matter the time of day, there’s always something delicious to be had.

What to Expect

We serve ‘classical safari food’ — simple yet delicious, fresh and filling, with more than a nod to local Kenyan cuisine (and a bit of Yotam Ottolenghi)

Our menu changes every day and is always à la carte. Not a buffet in sight. And the best freshly baked bread on safari — anywhere!

We cater to just about all dietaries: vegan, vegetarian, celiac, religious and cultural

For those interested in tasting some of our team’s favourite foods, you’ll enjoy our Kenyan platter: nyama choma, ugali and kachumbari

If you’re peckish between meals, there’s always a stash of Maasai honey biscuits in your tented suite and a variety of ‘bitings’ (a lovely East African word for snacks) in the evenings — samosas, chicken skewers, crudité and crisps

How to Dine

Some of our guests’ favourite memories are of the delicious food served with a sweet smile — where you want it and when you want it. Indoors, outdoors, by the Swimming Pool, with a view. In fact, just as important as the food itself is where we serve it.

Food & Dining Details

Our kitchen philosophy is that nothing is too much trouble, with every meal cooked and served with love. Below you will find further information on how we cater for guests with special dietary requirements.

What Are Your Requirements?

Gluten free? Easy. Vegan? No problem. Low sodium, kosher, no garlic, Chinese, food allergies, Halaal and food preferences are all in a day’s work. The children only like fish fingers. Done. Soymilk, almond milk? In the pantry. Nearly a third of our menu is vegetarian, for those who can’t get enough of the abundant fruits and vegetables Kenya has to offer.

Kosher Food and Preparation

For our kosher guests, Angama Mara has a small kosher stand-alone kitchen which is completely separate to the lodge kitchen and is fully equipped with everything needed for the preparation of kosher meals. This includes kosher crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots and pans, charcoal grill, cooking top, refrigeration and washing-up facilities. The kitchen is kept locked at all times other than when in use for kosher guests or by a kosher chef. The kosher kitchen can prepare meals for up to 12 guests.

A Menu for Children

When it comes to family safaris, we cater for our young guests by offering children’s menus, along with gastronomic adventures. Children can be a ‘Baker for a Day’ in the Angama Mara kitchen, where they’ll learn how to make something delicious for the rest of the family.

Guests staying at any of Angama’s camps and lodges are faced with the toughest of choices — how they wish to spend their day. Take a look at some of the daily adventures on offer:
