Safari in style
OVERLOOKING THE MAASAI MARA
A new take on classic tent design
Views from everywhere
Your own private deck
Architect duo Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, and Jan Allan, Kenya’s King of Canvas, designed Angama Mara’s elegant and classical tented suites with an 11-metre wide floor-to-ceiling glass front. Each tent has the same breathtaking view – no one is better than the last – and every day, the sunrise provides guests with early morning theatre as the hot air balloons float gently by.
Angama Mara’s elegant tented suites have been designed to make the most of the extraordinary views of the Maasai Mara from every corner – from the bed, the bath, the sitting area, the shower and even the w/c. The roof and other three sides are canvas – classic safari olive on the outside and cream on the inside for romance. Spanning over 100 square metres, the tented suites all include spacious decks for in-room dining, massage treatments and red rocking chair safaris.
With two separate but identical camps with 15 tented suites in each, Angama Mara offers a selection of tented suites to fulfil your individual requirements, whether you may be taking your children on safari, or perhaps travelling with someone who has limited mobility
Each camp has two sets of interconnected family suites which are identical to tented suites, except with the addition of a fully enclosed walkway linking them together. This means you can still enjoy your space and privacy, with the peace of mind of being able to safely and easily move between the two tented suites.
Elderly guests, or those with restricted mobility, have the option of staying at Patty’s Tent which has been designed specifically for guests with physical limitations. This tented suite includes modifications such as grab rails and ramps, but without sacrificing any special touches or comforts.

The King of Canvas
The first time I met Jan Allan in Nairobi just over a year ago he looked a whole lot younger and he was wearing closed shoes and trousers. That was the first and last time I saw him dressed like that. Perhaps he thought closed shoes and long trousers would seal the deal with these...
When Patty Came To Stay
A Carer’s Perspective Few top lodges cater well for disabled guests – lots of willingness but not much skill. Angama Mara had both and its real secret was the staff. We found them very friendly and genuinely happy to help. This was very useful as there are occasions during the day when little things don’t...
Shooting Dook, Shooting Angama
The view from Angama Mara, located high above Africa’s Great Rift Valley and overlooking the Maasai Mara, is the same view that Karen Blixen and Denys Finch Hatton enjoyed when they flew over in a yellow Gypsy Moth bi-plane. The picnic spot, where Meryl Streep and Robert Redford played out their love affair in front...
