Angama Mara is a remarkable owner-run safari lodge located high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley and overlooking Kenya’s Maasai Mara, which is considered by many to be the loveliest game reserve in Africa. The name ‘Angama Mara’ is inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’. Here guests will find a lodge where everything is simply perfect: two intimate camps of just 15 tented suites each, a private airfield and access to the Mara below, tailor-made safari days and a famously warm Kenyan welcome. A great safari is also about great food, which is not only delicious but also reflects and celebrates the environment. Almost more important than the food itself is where it is served and Angama Mara offers a dazzling choice of dining venues. Out of an African Kitchen features about 50 delicious recipes plus a gallery of stunning photographs of this magical camp, including the people, the décor, the food and, of course, the reserve.
