Safari Camp — Angama

Angama Safari Camp

A SOLE-USE MOBILE CAMP

AMIDST THE MEGA HERDS

Welcome to Angama Safari Camp, a sole-use mobile tented camp accommodating just eight guests in four lovely ensuite tents sited deep in a remote wilderness area of the south-western Mara Triangle. This unique camp captures the romance and adventure of the glorious Golden Age of safaris, yet with a lightness of spirit and footprint that will both surprise and delight our guests.

On The Wild Side

A MOBILE TENT UNLIKE ANY OTHER

The Angama team presents a fresh and uncluttered approach to a mobile safari camp design with the tents turned around to landscape orientation in order to maximise the light and views across the plains. Interiors that echo the much loved elements from Angama Mara with the best of everything but always just the right amount of everything.
