Angama Mara, Masai Mara

It’s Swahili for ‘suspended in mid-air’. Looking out over the Masai Mara, standing high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, you’ll understand how Angama found its name.

The view over the Great Rift Valley may well be staggering, but will it prove as memorable as watching zebra and giraffe sauntering nonchalantly past the lodge as you’re having breakfast? Or spotting a pod of hippos – just a couple of hundred metres below you - lumbering from one watering hole to another? Angama Mara stands high above one of the African Continent’s greatest game reserves so, if you take a safari here during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Kenya, you will undoubtedly be able to fill your camera’s memory with dazzling shots of life in the wild.
