Lodging and hospitality company Angama announced the November 2023 opening of Angama Amboseli, an intimate, 10-suite lodge set in Kenya’s private, 5,700-acre Kimana Sanctuary, against the iconic backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro, located just across the border in Tanzania.
Designed by the same team behind Amboseli’s sister lodge, Angama Mara, each of Angama Amboseli’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 views of Kilimanjaro, each suite includes 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 features indoor/outdoor dining with an expansive baraza, a sundowner fire pit where guests can watch the light change on Africa’s tallest mountain. The area also includes an infinity swimming pool equipped with a drinking trough for elephants. The Studios house a safari shop, a games room for the whole family, 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.
With exclusive traversing rights and unrestricted game viewing, Angama Amboseli offers remarkable density of 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” when the views of Mount Kilimanjaro are best. Guests may also choose to visit Amboseli National Park, a short 45-minute drive from the lodge.
“Set within a fever tree forest where some of Africa’s last Super Tuskers roam, Angama Amboseli will be a gentle start or finish to any East African safari, and a lovely contrast to the wide open plains of the Maasai Mara,” said Steve Mitchell, CEO and co-founder, Angama. “Guests can expect Angama’s signature blend of warm and gracious Kenyan service, well-considered guest experiences, contemporary African design with delightful touches throughout, and just enough spontaneity and humor to ensure that no one forgets to have fun.”
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 3.5-hour paved road drive from Nairobi.

But times are changing, as government agencies, trade associations and advocacy organizations step forward to empower them to be more visible ... and on their terms.

This issue felt like a warm memory, as it allowed me to reminisce on my last few 2022 trips. In October I joined Francis X. Gallagher and Haley Fogarty on a trip to Chicago, where I squeezed in a visit to one of the city’s newest spas (page 26), and in November, my husband, Scott, and I enjoyed an incredible trip to France, sailing the Seine River from Paris through Normandy. Follow along on our itinerary on page 74 and enjoy the gorgeous fall views of the French countryside in my photo. Yes, I’m still dreaming of those croissants ... and the macarons ... and the cheese, the wine — well, you get the point.
