Swahili for ‘suspended in mid-air’, Angama Mara is a clever distillation of the couple’s lifetime experience, understanding what their guests really want. The property is split into two camps of 15 glass-fronted tents, balanced on the rim of the valley. Private access to the Greater Mara Conservancies means that in 10 minutes you’re by the river. During migration, the predator action of a wildebeest crossingis less than an hour’s drive away – close by East African standards. The Angama Foundation’s active role in conservation, education and healthcare, and its support of small businesses, backs this up.
