A CAMP UNLIKE ANY OTHER
Welcome to Angama Safari Camp, a light-footprint sole-use tented camp accommodating up to eight guests in four lovely ensuite tents sited deep in the Maasai Mara. This unique camp captures the romance and adventure of the glorious Golden Age of safaris, yet with a lightness of spirit that will both surprise and delight guests. Here, you can enjoy the comforts of 21st century camping, but with the thrill of having nothing but canvas between you, the Mara and year-round abundant wildlife right on your doorstep.
TUCKED AWAY IN THE HEART OF THE ACTION
Extraordinary wildlife experiences right on your doorstep with the Maasai Mara yours to explore. The exclusive camp site is surrounded by abundant resident wildlife - prides of lion, cheetah, leopard, large elephant herds, buffalo and abundant plains game. During the Migration Season, you will be right in the heart of the action, surrounded by the mega herds. With your days spent exploring the landscape and abundant resident wildlife, and your nights spent under the stars, you will fall asleep listening to the nocturnal silence of the wilderness punctuated by the sounds of lions and hyena calling.
GRACIOUS KENYAN SERVICE
If there is one thing we love, it is spoiling our guests. You can look forward to the same charming service that delights guests at Angama Mara when staying at Angama Safari Camp, with the same experienced team looking after every aspect of your stay with their warm Kenyan approach to hospitality where nothing is ever too much trouble. At Angama Safari Camp you will have your own dedicated safari guide, camp host, chef, and a team of butlers, kitchen staff and askaris to ensure every detail is taken care of.
Meals are prepared using the freshest ingredients with the menu tailored around what you love to eat. Whether it’s an individually packed picnic under a tree somewhere in the middle of the Mara, or bitings shared around the campfire as the chef cooks dinner over the coals the food will always be good, but never fancy. Freshly baked bread, fire-roasted meat and vegetables, Kenyan cocktails and plenty of delicious surprises delivered with the warmest Kenyan smiles.Read more about Angama's food philosophy
