Angama Mara Fly-In Safari

The best positioned lodge in the Masai Mara

Taking inspiration from the Swahili word for 'suspended in mid-air’, Angama Mara is situated on a hillside high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley in what many consider to be the best position in the Masai Mara. 

Angama Mara's owner-managers have built and run more than 60 safari lodges and camps across Africa, so you can be assured that your time here will be magnificent. The game drive area is just a 10 minute drive away, and you'll see some of the greatest wildlife on earth as you traverse the Masai Mara in search of elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, zebra, gazelle and many more. You can also enjoy walking safaris, visits to local villages and a hot air balloon ride over the plains. 

Angama Mara is divided into two camps, each with 15 luxury tents. With fantastic 180 degree views from floor-to-ceiling glass fronts and generous balconies, suites are modern and comfortable with super king size beds. Tents can accommodate family groups, as each one can be configured to have a double bed, twin beds or even triple beds which are ideal for children under 12. Four of the suites are interconnecting, making them ideal for large families or groups.

As the sun sets, immerse yourself in the culture as Masai warriors perform traditional song and dance and show you how to make traditional jewellery using beads. If you desire peace and privacy then a picnic can be provided and you will be taken to a beautiful, isolated spot. Angama Mara's owners and staff will do all they can to provide you with the best experience possible.

  • Enjoy a picnic in one of the prettiest spots in the Masai Mara
  • Take a hot air balloon safari across the African plains
