Between Heaven and Earth
Inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air’, Angama Mara is located high above the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley. Angama Mara is a remarkable safari lodge overlooking Kenya’s Maasai Mara, considered by many as the finest game reserve on the continent. Angama Mara is set on the very site where some of the most romantic scenes in Out of Africa were filmed, including the picnic scene featured on the movie’s poster.
Your accommodation is in elegantly designed tented suites with an 11-metre-wide floor-to-ceiling glass front so you can enjoy the stunning sunrise and sunset to start and end each day. You can choose from two interconnecting tents; or 2 separate tents if you prefer more privacy.
In addition to the unmatched view, accommodations feature full amenities like highly polished parquet floors, distinctive splashes of Maasai red, a handsome drinks cabinet (with personal bar and safe discreetly tucked away), private washroom, WiFi and delivery of early morning tea and coffee. The public guest areas include a dining area and bar with an expansive deck overlooking the Masai Mara, library, infinity pool, fitness room and safari shop.
Angama Mara is the winner of numerous awards including Travel & Leisure’s 2020 World’s Best, Conde Nast’s 2020 Reader’s Choice Award and Fodors 2020 Finest Hotels in the World.
Your home for 3 nights in Nairobi will be the Fairmont The Norfolk, a beloved landmark dating back to 1904. This hidden gem with alluring old-world charm and elegant contemporary design.
During your day of touring Nairobi with your private driver/guide in an air-conditioned vehicle, you visit the famous Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, the Giraffe Sanctuary, amongst other activities. Your Nairobi touring will be designed specifically to your interests by Momenti Travel.
While in Nairobi you will visit Ushirika School, the school that One Girl Can built in Kibera and experience the resiliency and determination of our students firsthand.
During your visit to the school, you will have the opportunity to meet with some students to learn how a One Girl Can scholarship influences their lives as well as the lives of others living and learning in the Kibera settlement.
For the safari portion of your adventure, you will fly from Nairobi to the airstrip at Angama Mara in a Cessna Caravan, a rugged fixed under-carriage aircraft that is ideal for landing on the 'dirt' airstrips common in the game parks. Its high wings and large windows allow exceptional viewing of the unfolding scenery and animals whilst on-route.
Masai Mara Safari
From the moment you land at the Angama Mara airstrip you will be surrounded by the beauty of the Masai Mara. After a short road transfer to Angama Mara, you will have time to relax in your beautiful tent and enjoy lunch. Mid-afternoon you will head out on your first game drive.
Just 10 minutes from Angama Mara’s private road, you’ll find yourself in the heart of the action – surrounded by more animals than you could imagine. The vast grasslands dotted with acacias are home to abundant herds, as well as Africa’s Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo.
There’s no right time to visit the Masai Mara - astonishing and abundant wildlife sightings all year round. Take a game drive in the lovely Mara Triangle, open from sunrise to sunset. Here, you will be in completely open game-viewing vehicles to which the animals are well accustomed – the vehicles are specially equipped and converted, offering comfy seats, ample legroom, charging stations and canvas roofs for respite from the sun.
Over the next few days, you will enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the Masai Mara. After an amazing 3 days in the Masai Mara, you will fly back to Nairobi for one more night at Fairmont The Norfolk, before heading home.
