Maasai Mara Safari Lodge

Angama Mara

The views at Angama Mara stretch for miles. Perched upon the Oloololo Escarpment 1,000ft above the plains of the Mara below, the name of the lodge was inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’ and no matter where in the lodge you are, you are guaranteed the best seat in the house.

On Top of the World

Set on the edge of the Oloololo Escarpment, there is little that is conventional about the creation of Angama Mara, with views that stretch as far as the eye can see across the Maasai Mara set 1,000ft below. The 700-hectare site directly borders the Mara Triangle, with 1.2km of Rift Valley frontage, its own forests and game a-plenty.

The rare beauty of the site has an emotional effect on visitors — an almost dreamlike quality of being somewhere ‘between heaven and earth’

Guests instantly connect with the romance of the setting, where some of the loveliest scenes from the movie ‘Out of Africa’ were filmed

No Tented Suite has the best view, nor the worst — all are spread along the edge of the Rift Valley

Unrivalled exclusivity with a private road directly into the Reserve — a mere 10-minute drive to the entrance
