Experience this…an African farm-to-fork feast

High above the Maasai Mara on the very site where some of the most romantic scenes from Out of Africa were filmed, sits Angama Mara with its expanding array of enticing experiences for incentive groups.

The Kenyan lodge’s latest experience enables guests to venture out into the Shamba, which is Swahili for vegetable garden, and explore the lodge’s home grown produce. Think pumpkins and fruit trees, crop circles and herb patches, a Kenyan medicinal healing garden and plentiful citrus and tomatoes.

A passionfruit bower forms the entrance to the garden, where knowledgeable keepers welcome guests to explore the one-acre garden and taste the produce enroute. Guests can pick their own ingredients for the ultimate home-grown salad while Angama Mara’s butlers prepare picnic baskets filled with loaves of bread, local Kenyan cheeses and chilled rosé wine to accompany the meal.

Private Shamba-to-table lunches are served in the garden under the shade of towering trees after which, guests can kick back and take in the breath-taking views of the Maasai Mara below.

Angama Mara also offers a wide range of safari experiences, as you’d expect. The Mara Triangle is home to Africa’s great mammals, a mere ten-minute drive from the lodge, where guests can experience hot air ballooning, game drives, walking safaris, and cultural visits to neighbouring Maasai villages.

Every evening at sunset, Maasai warriors perform in the lodge’s traditional brush-packed boma and here, guests are able to not only photograph this time-honoured celebration of song and dance but can also participate should they so wish. In Angama Mara’s craft studio, guests also can try their hand at Maasai craft, as skilled ladies bead bespoke items onto pieces of clothing.

Angama Mara, which features two intimate camps of just fifteen tented luxury suites each, is attending inVOYAGE 2018 on 1-4 October in Ras Al Khaimah.
