Angama Mara sits high on a ridge, overlooking the famed Maasai Mara game reserve. Here, you can simply relax, enjoying the view and the temperate climate, or be more adventurous and explore. Set up your own personalised itinerary just as you like it.
Rise in the pre-dawn cool for a hot air balloon ride, walk along the edge of the Great Rift Valley or be a guest in a traditional Maasai family home.
Maasai’s great game
The Maasai Mara is perhaps the loveliest – and most exciting – game reserve in Africa. Expect to see prides of lions, herds of elephants, buffaloes, leopards and rhinos. Take a walking tour with a Maasai naturalist to learn about their way of life and seek out the rare oribi antelope.
The combination of the geography of the park and its wildlife offers a wonderful opportunity for photography. Imagine being able to capture one of the great migrations, or a pride of lions relaxing in the shade of a tree.
The lodges at Angama Mara offer plenty of opportunity for relaxation. You will recognise the views from the film ‘Out of Africa’, and can enjoy a ‘red rocking-chair safari’ right at your tent, watching the wildlife in the valley below. Alternatively, settle down in the library to enjoy some of the best Africana books and films.
Expend some energy in the pool or fitness room, or simply stretch out on one of our sun-loungers.
Maasai warriors perform every evening at sunset, where you are welcome to take photos or even join in. Learn to thread beads in the craft studio or buy jewellery directly from the Maasai women who create it. Many of the local homesteads welcome visitors, and their occupants are happy to talk about their traditions and challenges in a modern society.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
