Masai Mara National Reserve

Angama Mara

Angama Mara - Kenya

High above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley lies a beautiful piece of land that overlooks what many safari travellers deem the loveliest game reserve on the continent, Kenya’s Maasai Mara. This is a place where everything is just as it ought to be. On the rim of the Great Rift Valley Escarpment, overlooking the Mara Triangle, regarded by many as Africa’s finest safari destination with its year-round resident game.The Mara is also home to the annual Great Wildebeest Migration – and Angama Mara overlooks all of this. A place where the light never sits still. The sun shining through the clouds creates chaotic shadows, ever on the move across the Mara plains. The sky – ‘anga’ in Swahili – melts into the horizon, and it is hard to define where it ends and the earth begins. The lovely Swahili word ‘angama’, meaning ‘suspended in mid air’, inspired the name Angama Mara. The site completely speaks to this, as each tented suite and guest area hangs on the edge of the Rift Valley, with views that quite simply take your breath away. Two remarkable features of Angama Mara are its direct private access into the Mara Triangle and this is where some of the loveliest scenes from the film Out of Africa were filmed.
