Luxury safari lodge specialist, Nicky Fitzgerald, has revealed plans to develop a new intimate-sized Angama camp in Amboseli, Kenya.
A sister-property to Angama Mara which debuted in Kenya’s Maasai Mara in 2015, Angama Amboseli will have exclusive access to Kimana Sanctuary, a 5,700-hectare game-filled wildlife corridor linking the greater Amboseli, Chyulu Hills and Tsavo ecosystems.

Angama Amboseli will be set in the heart of the Sanctuary, enabling guests to explore the diverse landscape and wildlife.
Angama is partnering with Big Life Foundation to activate the project, which will manage the sanctuary on behalf of the 844 Maasai families that own the land. Lease fees paid by Angama will flow to the families, ensuring that a centuries-old migratory path used by the region’s elephants will remain protected.
“Kimana Sanctuary is a treasure and we couldn’t be more excited to build a camp here that our guests will love,” said Fitzgerald, Angama’s CEO, who is the former long-time andBeyond sales and marketing head.
“Angama Amboseli will be the perfect complement to a Mara safari, where our guests will enjoy breathtaking views of Kili and magnificent herds of elephants, including some of the planet’s last great Super Tuskers,” Fitzgerald added.
Further details on the project will be revealed in April 2022.
Angama Mara comprises two camps of 15 tented suites, positioned on the edge of the Great Rift Valley. Rates at Angama Mara are priced from US$1,400 per person per night in Standard Season and US$2,150 in Peak Season.
The company also operates the relocatable four-tent Angama Safari Camp in the Mara which debuted in 2020.
