GUIDE ON ANGAMA MARA IN KENYA
Angama Mara takes its name from the Kiswahili word, ‘Angama' which means ‘hanging in mid-air'. True to its name, it sits over the edge of the Great Rift Valley in south-western Kenya. Perched around three kopjes on the Ololoolo Escarpment, with the glorious landscape of the Masai Mara National Reserve spread at your feet, this premier accommodation offers you breathtaking views that change colors with the sunlight playing on them and fill your AfricanMecca dream vacation in Kenya with many memorable moments. Watch the seasonal Masai Mara migration (July to September) of the wildebeest, zebras, elands and gazelles flowing like a stream across the plains below you from the comfortable lookout post of your deck while brilliantly-colored hot air balloons waft in the early morning breeze before you. The luxury tents at Angama give you the fused authentic safari feel, having being made out of canvas with enchanting wooden parquet floors except for the extensive glass front wall that faces the landscape. Since this boutique camp is unfenced, animals roam around freely, and a Maasai guard will escort you to and from your room after dusk. Angama Mara comprises of two divided camp areas with a total of 30 tents (15 tents in each site), four of which are interlinked and suited for families bush traveling in Africa. Three children of 12 years and below can share a room, and one of the tents is specially equipped for the comfort of disabled guests. Ceiling fans circulate air to keep you comfortable and safe deposit boxes are also placed in your room. Enjoy all-inclusive drinks from the in-room minibar.
Wi-Fi and laundry services are also available. You can also request for a massage service in your room to relax sore muscles after you return from your game drives or enjoy a languorous soak in your room in the standalone bath at the end of another thrilling day on your Masai Mara game Reserve tour. The en-suite bathroom includes an indoor shower and hairdryer for your use. Visit the camp’s wilderness gym for a rejuvenating workout session to burn off the hearty meals Angama provides and you enjoy those meals in the privacy of your room with your loved ones, in the indoor dining area or al fresco around the escarpment. The camp also has a swimming pool where you can cool-off outdoor or get a tan relaxing beside it. For an up, close and personal fauna experience, go on exploratory game drives in a custom-built safari vehicle with an expert seasoned Maasai guide on board. You will be fascinated by his in-depth knowledge of the animals that comes from a lifetime of living with them. Also listen to the traditional lore of his people more of which you can experience when you visit his village. The safari walks you take on your AfricanMecca bush trip in wild Kenya will be enlightening and inspiring as you watch the diverse insects that abound, animal tracks, droppings and beautiful flora with its holistic healing properties. You could also spot the varied 450 species of birds of the Mara and mammals like the majestic lions, graceful giraffes, elusive leopards, stealthy cheetahs, grumpy buffalos and many more. Complement your adventurous holiday in East Africa with an optional ride in the hot air balloon where you will have a bird’s eye view of the picturesque expanse of the Masai Mara Reserve teeming with a diversity of wildlife.
