Room types at Angama Mara

1 of 1

Interconnected Family Suites

Each camp has two sets of interconnected family suites which are identical to the Tented Suites, except with the addition of a fully enclosed walkway linking them together. This means guests can still enjoy their space and privacy, with the peace of mind of being able to safely and easily move between the two Tented Suites.

1 of 1

Patty's Tent

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.

Patty's Tent has been fitted with grab rails in both the shower and the w/c. The tent has been cleared of any unnecessary furniture, while all level changes have been fitted with gently sloping ramps. All gravel paths have been cleared between the tent, guest area and vehicle drop-off point.

1 of 1

Tented Suites (2 camps with 15 tented suites each)

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.

Highly polished parquet floors, distinctive splashes of Maasai red, a handsome drinks cabinet (with personal bar and safe tactfully tucked away), vanity with double basins, separate w/c, writing desk with ample charging points, WiFi, Africology guest amenities, a collection of East African books, a beautiful John Vogel woven screen, and a butler’s lobby allowing for the discreet delivery of early morning tea and coffee, all add to the comfort and delight of guests in their suites.

Activities at Angama Mara

1 of 1

Bush BBQ

Gather in a lantern-lit forest for dinner cooked over the coals. Guests dine family-style at long, wooden tables, off enamel plates with dishcloths for napkins. It’s fun, it’s relaxed and most of all, it’s delicious.

1 of 1

Hot-air Ballooning

Watch the hot-air balloon as it is inflated, with a steaming cup of Kenyan coffee in hand. Just before dawn lift off into the skies, witnessing the sunrise and a multitude of animals below while floating over the Mara. Come back down to earth for a champagne breakfast in the middle of the savanna’s endless plains.

1 of 1


Game drives at Angama Mara are planned according to what the guests would like to do as there is no set programme. Descending down Angama Mara’s private road, 10-minutes later guests enter the Reserve. Even though there is game a-plenty around the lodge, the heart of the action takes place in one of Africa’s most iconic year-round Big Five destinations – the Mara Triangle.

1 of 1

Sundowners in the Maasai Boma

As the day ends, it’s time to sit back, sip a cocktail and watch the sun descend behind the Rift Valley from the spectacular vantage point of the Sundowner Boma — perfect for this, with its circular shape encapsulating the dramatic views overlooking the Maasai Mara.

Traditionally as the sun set, livestock was gathered into this space to protect the animals from predators. Today, it is also a space in which people gather, and where the African night is welcomed with song, dance and celebration.

1 of 1

The Shamba

Explore Angama Mara’s one-acre lovely kitchen garden followed by a soil-to-fork lunch under towering moth trees. Crusty bread, local cheese, chilled rosé and the freshest of salads served with the Mara as a backdrop – what could be better?

1 of 1

Visit a Maasai Manyatta

Guests enjoy a rare opportunity of gaining a deeper understanding into every day lives of the Maasai, their ways and their fascinating culture, and maybe a few keepsakes to take home.

1 of 1

Visit the Beading Studio

Leading off the Safari Shop is a sunny studio for Maasai ladies who come daily to bead bespoke items. Guests can try their hand at beading or perhaps have the ladies bead a name bracelet or an item of their clothing.

1 of 1

Walking Safaris

Guests have access to over a huge tract of wilderness along the Oloololo Escarpment. Escorted by a Maasai naturalist guide, walks can be as long or short as guests prefer. Discover the smaller details – fascinating plants, birds, insects and animals and the role they play in traditional Maasai beliefs and customs.
