Journey Details

DAY 1-3: Masai Mara National Reserve

One of Kenya’s undisputed natural highlights is the Masai Mara National Reserve, which sprawls across more than 1500 square kilometres of the country’s southwest. The park protects a phenomenal array of game, including elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo, as well as crocodile and hippopotamus in the Mara River. The birdlife is no less impressive, with over 450 resident bird species. However, the true highlight here is the Great Migration, recognised as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. To survive the dry months of July to September, some 1.7 million wildebeest, migrate from the parched plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Along with much smaller numbers of antelope, buffalo and zebra, they move to the more forgiving grasslands of the Masai Mara. In their wake come predators such as lion, hyena and cheetah, for whom these giant herds are an easy source of prey.

Where you will stay: Angama Mara

High above Kenya’s Maasai Mara where some of the most romantic scenes from Out of Africa were filmed, sits Angama Mara comprising of two separate and intimate camps, each encompassing 15 tented suites. The award-winning lodge is one of the Masai Mara’s most luxurious camps.

Built on the edge of the Great Rift Valley on one of the most sought-after sites on the continent, this lodge offers breathtaking views as far as the eye can see. The lodge boasts outstanding game viewing 12 months of the year, with private access to the reserve.

Inspired by the Swahili word for ‘suspended in mid-air,’ Angama Mara floats 1,000 feet above the Maasai Mara, where, every morning, hot-air balloons sail past the 30-foot-wide floor-to-ceiling glass fronts of each suite.

Tailor-made safaris days are as action-packed or as gentle as guests choose them to be. In addition to consistently excellent game viewing, including Africa’s Big Five, guests can experience hot-air ballooning, walking safaris, garden-to-table lunches in the Shamba, hosted photographic safaris, editing their images in the Photographic Studio, a Fitness Room, a 40-foot-long Swimming Pool, a curated gallery of African art, clothing and jewellery, and a sun-filled studio where local Maasai women work at beading bespoke items — or simply do nothing at all.

Mutuma and the team at Designer Safari could not have made the planning of this safari easier for us. The pricing and included aspects of the trip were clear and presented upfront; the communication was transparent and continous; and the chosen safari spot, &Beyond Kichwa Tembo was perfect. I couldn't recommend this team enough!
