Located in an extraordinarily beautiful spot on the edge of the Rift Valley and nearly 1,000ft above the plains of the Maasai Mara, Angama Mara is a remarkable safari lodge named after the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’. After flying into Nairobi, guests spent the first night at one of the city’s luxurious hotels, before journeying in small private planes to Angama Mara’s airfield the following morning. The next four days were spent enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime Safari experience, including a ‘safari by air’ over the Maasai Mara in hot air balloons towards the Tanzanian border. Throughout the course of the event, guests were taken on a number of Game Drives through the heart of the Mara Triangle, where the vast grasslands are home to abundant herds, as well as Africa’s Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. For the duration of their stay, guests had exclusive use of the campsite, which includes 30 spacious Tented Suites, each with a floor-to-ceiling glass front.
“We have been on several safaris before but this was outstanding and perfect in every way. The finesse and attention to detail always makes every trip you organise unique and memorable, thank you. Always love your team’s bubbly enthusiasm, warm welcome and patience!”
