Angama Mara, Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Considered by safari lovers as one of the lovliest positions in the Mara, if not all of Kenya, Angama Mara is suspended 300m above the Mara Triangle.

The Swahili word ‘angama’, meaning ‘hanging or suspended in mid-air’, inspired the name Angama Mara. Perched on the edge of the Great Rift Valley this remarkable lodge overlooks the magnificent rolling plains of the Maasai Mara. A high-design lodge like no other, glass-fronted tented suites with views that take your breath away and direct access into the exclusive Mara Triangle for safari activities.

Cultural Interaction

Sing and dance with the Maasai warriors, visit the ladies at the craft studio and walk with the Maasai naturalists.

Hot Air Balloons

Enjoy one of the iconic experiences of Africa, floating over the Maasai Mara in a hot air balloon. Or simply be "suspended in the air" at Angama Mara high above the Mara floor.

Honeymoon / Just for 2

Romantic private picnic for two on the crest of the Out of Africa kopje - arguably the most romantic spot in Africa.

Keeping Fit

A glass fronted, fully equipped fitness room with endless views over the Mara triangle is a unique way to keep fit! Equipment includes elliptical machines, treadmills, yoga mats, Pilates balls and a ballet bar for stretching.


Guests can relax to the sounds of nature on the tent's deck while being pampered with a full-body massage.

Specialist Guiding

Discover the Great Rift Valley on foot and learn the ancient ways of the Maasai people from the naturalists.

Walking Safaris

Walking safaris on the escarpment, tailor made for every guest from a gentle 2-hour stroll to a full day's walk.

Angama Mara is set apart by its location on a site almost without equal. Every tented suite shares a 180° view of the Mara below, which allows waking up to the sight of balloons floating gently by at the foot of your bed in the very heart of Maasailand. Guests will be able to picnic at the iconic spot where some of the loveliest scenes from the film "Out of Africa" were shot.
