The Mara (as it is affectionately known) covers 1510 km2 (583 mi2) and is widely considered to be Africa’s greatest reserve. The backdrop of the Siria escarpment in the west overlooks sweeping savannas, riverine woodlands, and forests on a deceptively flat landscape that extends eastwards towards the Sekenani Hills and northwards towards the Aitong Hills. The Mara is in essence the northern extension of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem and plays host to one of nature's greatest phenomenons, the Great Wildebeest Migration.
Because of the quality of wildlife viewing, the Mara has for generations been the setting for hundreds of wildlife documentaries, including Disney's African Cats, and the BBC’s Big Cat Diaries and Planet Earth. It is a wildlife photographer's paradise and every year visitors come to capture the spectacular wildlife. The reserve and its conservancies contain some of the highest densities of predators in Africa and this only increases as nomads and vagrants follow the huge herds back and forth through this ecosystem during the seasonal wildebeest migration.
Angama Safari Camp is a light-footprint sole-use tented camp, accommodating up to eight guests in four lovely ensuite tents sited deep in the Maasai Mara year-round. This unique camp captures the romance and adventure of the glorious Golden Age of safaris, yet with a lightness of spirit that will both surprise and delight guests.
Surrounded by the mega herds during the Migration season and abundant resident wildlife throughout the year, Angama Safari Camp embraces a fresh and uncluttered approach to mobile safari camp design, the tents have been turned to landscape orientation to maximise the light and views across the plains. The interiors echo the fresh approach to design of its sister camp, Angama Mara.
With a dedicated safari vehicle and guide, safaris can start at sunrise and end after sunset, arriving back at the private safari camp where the team are waiting to take care of each guest with gentle and warm Kenyan service.
Experiences & Activates
Extraordinary wildlife experiences right on your doorstep with the Maasai Mara yours to explore. The area has abundant resident wildlife - prides of lion, cheetah, leopard, large elephant herds, buffalo and plenty of plains game. During the Migration season, the camp is right in heart of the action surrounded by the mega herds.
Angama Mara is easily accessible - about a two-hour safari away. Guests staying at Angama Safari Camp are welcome to visit Angama Mara and enjoy all the experiences on offer, including lunch in the Shamba or on the Guest Area deck, picnics on the Out of Africa kopje, visits to the Safari Shop and Beading Studio, or an afternoon at the swimming pool, making use of the fitness room.
With a fresh, playful and uncluttered approach, the ensuite guest tents have been designed for landscape orientation in order to maximise the light and views across the plains. Each features an extra-length king bed, writing desk, dressing room, vanity, separate w/c, and the playful addition of double bucket showers. Interiors echo the much-loved elements from Angama Mara: red Fermob rocking chairs and furniture by master-weaver John Vogel - with the very best of everything but always just the right amount of everything. Children of all ages are welcome, but regrettably Angama Safari Camp is unable to accommodation triples in the guest tents.
Borana is located at the foot of Mt Kenya just North of the equator, resting on the Laikipia Plateau. The Conservancy is nestled between an arid landscape to the north and ancient indigenous forests to the south. This 32,000-acre conservation area is home to both Black and White Rhino and a wide variety of other endangered species.
This ecosystem, known as the Lewa-Borana Landscape, allows the wildlife free rein over 90,000 acres of intact African wilderness. Together with Lewa, this environment hosts a thriving community of over 200 rhino (both black and white), making this one of East Africa’s largest continuous rhino habitat.
Arijiju lies in the Lewa Borana Conservancy, a vast private game reserve spanning 90,000acres in Laikipia, which rolls from Mount Kenya, across the equator and up to the semi-desert plains of the north.
Laikipia is home to one of the country’s largest elephant populations, and holds the most mammals in East Africa: from cheetah and lions, to giraffes and the iconic black and white rhino. The Lewa Borana Conservancy provides a vital wildlife corridor between Mount Kenya and the Northern wildernesses. It is the last stronghold ofKenya’s endangered black rhino.
Dedicated to conservation, Arijiju has been sustainably built and designed to blend into the surrounding landscape. At once contemporary and ancient - partly inspired by the monasteries of neighbouring Ethiopia- the living roof and roughhewn stone walls conceal five expansive suites, a cinema room, study, living room and dining room.
With furniture handcrafted by local artisans, Belgian linen, heavy campaign desks and accents of leather, the effect is earthy and organic, with a nod to old-world safari. An enchanting hideaway in theKenyan wilds, that sleeps up to ten adults and four children.
Arijiju has five bedrooms; three suites in the main house, and two generous cottages a stone’s throw from the courtyard. The house is perfectly positioned to face the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya in the distance while the bedrooms face east to receive an elaborate, equatorial light show at sunrise. Each bedroom features a king-size bed, a freestanding copper bathtub, indoor and outdoor shower, daybed and open fireplace. Meanwhile, a rooftop constellation suite can be arranged on request and offers unbridled views of the expansive night sky.
Set in lush, landscaped gardens, Sirai Beach is a palatial private home overlooking the Indian Ocean from a cliff top on the Kenyan coast in Kilifi, north of Mombasa. The house, designed in contemporary Swahili style, captures the gentle breeze as it rolls in from the ocean, its interior styling infused with the flavours of the coast.
The ground floor of the main house is arranged around a beautiful open veranda, flanked by a breezy dining room on one side, and a lavish drawing room on the other. The entire first floor is given over to the master suite, while the other five suites are dotted around the gardens, all with their verandas, private rooftop terraces and cavernous bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers.
With its 25-metre infinity pool and poolside bar, tennis court, gym and spa within its grounds, Sirai Beach is the ultimate beachside residence, the perfect place for lazy days and happy memories, whether languishing by the pool with a favourite tipple or enjoying a multitude of water sports on the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
The house is served by an accomplished chef and house team who make a point of understanding and anticipating guests’ preferences, creating mouthwatering delicacies from locally sourced ingredients - including line-caught fish, plucked straight from the ocean by a trusted local fisherman who follows responsible fishing practices. The ethos underpinning Sirai Beach is one of conservation, with a focus on supporting the local communities through employment and sustainable tourism.
