Can you survive living offline at a remote lodge in the Mara?
Angama Safari Camp is the exclusive use sister camp to Angama Mara and is located on the floor of the Mara Triangle in Kenya. A mobile camp, it moves seasonally and can only remain in each location for no more than 30 days at a time. The camp offers just four ensuite tents sleeping up to eight guests at a time – and no wi-fi. None.
During a recent visit, the camp was set up on the banks of the Mara River. As we arrived with our incredibly knowledgeable guide Fred, we knew this was going to be something incredibly special. Not only were we welcomed by a huge hippo pod cooling off in the water, but a huge elephant herd and a pair of mating lions also joined the welcome brigade.
The friendly staff were full of smiles as we drove into camp, sorting our bags efficiently and escorting us to our tents. The scent of canvas and the sound of a zip unlocking as we entered our abode were what we’ve been craving for years!
The tents have everything you could possibly need – and more, decorated with just the right amount of colour and style. There are the most amazing beds and quality linens too. Each tent has a separate partition for the bathroom, with a flushing loo and a full bucket shower room. Staff gladly ensure it is filled with hot water for when you’re ready to turn in; nothing is too much trouble.
