Located on a private concession in Kenya, new luxury lodge Angama Amboseli opens in November in the Kimana Sanctuary.
The country’s first community-owned conservancy, working in partnership with the Big Life Foundation, the Kimana Sanctuary is framed by verdant landscapes, an abundance of wildlife and sweeping vistas of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa.
Offering guests an idyllic East African oasis with high-level, warm Kenyan service and well-considered guest experiences, Angama Amboseli is set within a fever tree forest where some of Africa’s last Super Tuskers roam.
Offering ten tented guest suites, including two sets of connecting family units, featuring a contemporary take on African design, the high-end lodge has been designed with consideration to animals and nature throughout. Visitors can expect neutral, earthy colours, reflective of the lodge’s surroundings with elegant, understated textures including canvas, concrete and rattan.
What’s more, each tent has been designed so that guests can witness undisrupted views of Mount Kilimanjaro from the bedroom to the shower and comes complete with floor-to-ceiling screened doors leading to a private deck with a lounge area, outdoor shower and Angama’s signature rocking chair – perfect for mountain gazing.
Other guest amenities will include the main guest area, with flexible indoor-outdoor dining with a baraza and a sundowner fire pit; and The Studio, which will house a safari shop, games room, art gallery, maker’s studio and a fully equipped photography suite.
A highlight of the lodge is its picture-perfect infinity swimming pool, fringed by fever trees, fronted by a water trough for the elephants and overlooking Kili’s snow-capped peak. There is no better setting to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life and relax and unwind.
With exclusive traversing rights and unrestricted game viewing, Angama Amboseli will invite its guests to partake in a memorable gentle-paced and expertly guided safari to witness some of Africa’s largest mammal species including lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, zebras, buffalo and more.
The lodge is accessible via daily Safarilink flights from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport to the sanctuary’s private airfield; private charters to and from the Maasai Mara; or by car via a three-and-a-half hour drive from Nairobi.
