Kenya’s Angama Amboseli To Open In November 2023

Angama has announced the launch of Angama Amboseli in November 2023. The intimate 10-suite lodge is set in Kenya’s private 5,700-acre Kimana Sanctuary, against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Angama Amboseli has been designed by the same team behind the Maasai Mara’s Angama Safari Camp—architect Jan Allan and interior designers Annemarie Meintjes and Alison Mitchell. Each of the lodge’s tented suites (including two sets of connecting family units) features a super king bed, a personalized drinks armoire and a dressing area connecting to a bathroom with a double vanity and double shower. To maximize the views of Kilimanjaro, each suite has floor-to-ceiling screened doors leading to a private deck with a shaded lounge area, an outdoor shower and Angama’s signature rocking chairs.

The lodge’s guest area will feature indoor-outdoor dining with an expansive baraza, a sundowner fire pit and an infinity swimming pool equipped with a drinking trough for elephants. The Studios will house a safari shop, a family games room, a gallery and makers’ studio for Kenyan artisans, and a photography studio to assist guests with everything from renting cameras and editing pictures to photo shoots.

Guests at Angama Amboseli can spot wildlife, including elephants, eland, buffalo, reedbuck, giraffe, zebra, warthogs, leopards, cheetahs, servals and many birds of prey, all of which can be viewed on an early-morning “pajama safari,” including the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Guests can also visit Amboseli National Park, located a 45-minute drive from the lodge.

Angama Amboseli is easily accessible via daily Safarilink flights from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport to the sanctuary’s private airfield or nearby airstrips; private charters are also welcome for direct connectivity to and from the Maasai Mara. The lodge is also accessible by car via a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Nairobi.
