East African Safaris

Angama Logo

Considered the birthplace of safari, travellers have been drawn to East Africa’s endless plains and remarkable density of wildlife for decades. For those seeking a luxury safari — look no further than Kenya’s famous Maasai Mara.

"Here I am, where I ought to be."  
–Karen Blixen

Why visit Kenya and the 
Maasai Mara?

The open grasslands of the Maasai Mara allow for incredible sightings almost everywhere you turn.  You’ll find all of the Big 5 — lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo — along with hyena, cheetah, hippo, giraffe, zebra, countless antelope and scores of different bird species.

In South Africa’s Kruger and Sabi Sands reserves or Botswana’s Okavango Delta, the wildlife is quite literally in "the bush” and can often be difficult to see — which is not the case here, thanks to the vast savannas. 


Angama Mara Safari Lodge

Sitting 1,000ft in the air, on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, sits Angama Mara, our flagship lodge. With glass-fronted tents, each with their own breathtaking view over the Maasai Mara, the en-suite rooms feature an extra long king-sized bed, double vanity, a personalised drinks armoire, bathtub, shower and private deck. 

The lodge also comprises a cosy Guest Area for private meals and cocktails by the fire, along with a host of other luxury amenities and experiences…

  • All game drives into the Maasai Mara each day
  • All on-property guest experiences such as Walking safaris, Out of Africa picnic, Shamba lunch, Sundowner Boma, etc.
  • All meals and drinks — always private dining and à la carte
  • Laundry service & WiFi
  • Transfers between the lodge and the nearby airstrip

Farm-to-Table: Take a lazy lunch in the garden with your own hand-picked fresh salads

Hot-air Ballooning: Float over the Mara and witness its abundant wildlife from above

Private Safari Vehicles: By reserving one, you can drive whenever you like, for as long as you like

Don't miss a private sleep-out experience

Angama Safari Camp, the lodge’s little sister, is a light footprint exclusive-use tented camp that sleeps just 8 guests down inside the Mara Triangle. Add a few nights to your stay here for a different, up-close experience with nature or mingle with the Great Migration during July-September. 

  • A dedicated staff — a camp host, butler, chefs and more
  • A private vehicle a guide to safari whenever you like
  • Double shower heads heated by solar panels
  • Laundry services & Starlink WiFi
  • Access to all main lodge amenities as you wish

Relax: Lie by the sparkling rim-flow pool or indulge in a massage in the privacy of your tent

Romantic Moments:  Enjoy a private Out of Africa-themed picnic where scenes from the movie were filmed, perfect for honeymoons, anniversaries or birthday celebrations just for two



 Ways to spend your days at Angama


The best time to visit Kenya

'Between heaven and earth'

Jan - March: 

A lovely time for safari — the Mara is not as crowded and avoiding the Peak periods of Christmas and Easter, rates here are more favourable as well

April - June: 

Sometimes called 'Green Season', the longer rains happen in April and May but do not prevent you from driving. This offers some of most intimate game viewing in the Mara with few crowds, lush landscapes — and a plethora of baby animals

July - Sept: 

Peak Season, when the Great Migration is in town — 1.5 Million wildebeest and zebra travelling each year from Tanzania in search of fresh grass. With dramatic river crossings and kills, 
this is the Mara at its busiest (and most expensive)

Oct - Dec

Somewhat of a 'secret season' as the Migration can still linger but the crowds have gone home. The shorter rains happen at this time, but don't worry, you won’t get wet

Where else can we take you?

Perhaps you're interested in the iconic scenes of Super Tusker elephants on dry lake beds with Mt. Kilimanjaro standing proudly in the background? Then you'll love our newest property, Angama Amboseli. 

Is a trek to see the gorillas in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park on your bucket list? The team has trekked both so they know exactly where to stay and how to do it.

Do you want to combine with the Serengeti, just over the border from the Mara, or the Ngorongoro Crater? We know just the spots to stay. 

Or maybe you’d like to flop onto a white sand beach along the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean — our favourite properties on the Kenyan Coast will take great care of you.

Plan your trip

Sitting just one degree below the equator, the weather in the Maasai Mara is always temperate, which is good for travellers and for game viewing any time of day or year. You'll also get to meet and interact with many members of the Maasai community, known for their bright red shukas, singing, dancing and jumping.

Formerly part of the British Empire, Kenya has strong infrastructure, connectivity and English proficiency along with high levels of service — in fact, in all of Safari Africa, Kenyans are most known for their kindness, warmth and authentic hospitality.

Everything is complimentary (almost)



It is hard to find words to convey the beauty of Angama Mara...the views are just incredible. Add to that the warmth of welcome and care from all of the Angama staff, slick modern dining spaces, beautiful luxury tented rooms, amazing food and all the delights of the Mara on the doorstep, it really is a taste of heaven on earth. The highlights for us were the game drives with Tito, who has an incredible knowledge and passion for the natural world all around..."

"This place is heaven on earth!!!
