Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
Named after the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’, we quickly fell in love with Angama Mara’s incredible tents nestled high above the Great Rift Valley. Consisting of two camps with 15 tents each, this luxurious property is perfect for an ultra-special safari experience.
Perched atop the rim of the Great Rift Valley, Angama Mara provides breath-taking views over the Mara and Serengeti. Small gravel paths weave through the bush to luxurious well-obscured rooms.
Three of the walls in each tent might be canvas, but you’ll absolutely love the glass floor-to-ceiling wall at the front, offering the most wonderful views of the Masai Mara plains. There’s simply nothing better than waking up to see the whole world alight with yellows and oranges as the sun rises. Inside, each tent adopts a minimalist yet modern vibe, which contrasts beautifully with the colourful African textiles. Four family tents are available made up of two tents connected by a predator-proof pathway.
Should you fancy mingling with other guests and toasting to beautiful days in the Masai Mara, The Pavilion located in between both camps is certainly ideal. With glass walls and expansive verandas, this main area will take your breath away. The architecture is dramatic and unique, with a lovely open-plan room where the lounging area, dining area and bar are merged into one large space. During your stay enjoy complimentary binoculars or hire a fantastic camera and take a lesson in the camps own photography studio. There’s even a gorgeous pool and fitness room.
If that hasn’t quite enticed you enough, Angama Mara is host to some spectacular activities. From soaring above the plains in a hot air balloon and visiting a Maasai village, to enjoying a romantic picnic in the middle of the bush, your experience here will be quintessential and incredibly memorable.
