The Out of Africa Experience

Many of our guests tell us that Out of Africa is their most-loved film of all time – for some this may be why they chose to come to Africa. By a quirk of fate, Angama Mara was built on the same site that many of the most memorable scenes from Out of Africa were filmed. Travel back in time to the Golden Age of safaris and celebrate this treasured piece of literary history.

Relive the Love Story

Whether you’re an aficionado or not, you can immerse yourself in all the touchpoints of the novel or film that Angama has to offer

Subtle nods to ‘Out of Africa’ can be found throughout Angama. If you’ve read the novel or watched the film, see if you can find them all scattered around the lodge

Even if you’re not familiar with ‘Out of Africa’, you’ll enjoy the special movie-related experiences — for example, the private picnic on the Out of Africa kopje, or sundowners on the Saddle featured in the movie’s poster
