An owner-run safari lodge inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’, Angama Mara is located on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, with jaw-dropping views over the Maasai Mara below.

With no set program, each day is planned around what guests would like to do: a perfect Mara day starts with waking to hot air balloons floating past your tent’s window; a full day on safari, complete with picnic stop in the middle of nowhere; and ends with the setting sun, shared in a boma in the company of Maasai warriors.

The tented suites hang off the edge of the Great Rift Valley, offering supreme comfort and breathtaking views of the Mara below and beyond. Guests choose to dine in the privacy of their tents, in the lovely guest areas, or enjoy picnics in the Mara under a solitary fig tree and BBQ dinners in a candle-lit forest.

Most memorable of all is the warm and charming service offered by a proudly Kenyan team – always the highlight of any guest’s stay.


With return flights for two from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport, a private vehicle at your disposal, and five days at Angama Mara in the company of Adam Bannister – this is an unforgettable safari experience.

After being collected from your Nairobi hotel, enjoy the easy 45-minute flight to Angama Mara’s private airfield, and choose to walk in to camp should you wish.

Once you are settled in, Adam will introduce himself and together you will plan how you would like to spend the next five days. The choices are endless: full day safaris in the Mara Triangle, walking safaris on the Great Rift Valley escarpment, cultural interactions with the Maasai and perhaps even a hot air balloon ride over the plains early one morning.

You will be able to choose exactly where you want to go, how long you would like to stay at each one sighting and when you would like to return to the lodge. Accompanied by an Angama Mara guide, Adam will take you down the best, hidden grass tracks in the Mara Triangle, where the likelihood of bumping into other vehicles is remote, and photographic opportunities abound.

And after a day spent exploring the Mara, enjoy the comfort of Angama with your partner. This is the Mara as it is meant to be.
