GOODBYE ANGAMA MARA

Just over 4 years ago I sat on the edge of the Oloololo escarpment and watched the sun rise over the Mara with Nicky and Kate Fitzgerald. Behind us was the building site of the new lodge. It has been the most incredible journey with the Fitzgeralds as they have created the multi award-winning Angama Mara experience. They are now ready to fly the nest and soar. We wish Nicky, Kate, Steve Mitchell and the Angama team all the very best for the future. They remain a close Classics partner and will be on our Indaba stand.
For all future enquiries, please contact Kate Fitzgerald: kate.fitzgerald@angama.com

TEAM UPDATE

We have 5 of our team in Tanzania as we speak. Pictured above is Michelle, Cara, Melinda, Lara, and Simon, who are visiting Chem Chem Safaris, Gibb's Farm and Legendary Expeditions this month. Keep an eye out for updates on these soon.

Mozambique

WHAT WE LOVE: Besides the fact that most of our team are beach fanatics and keen scuba divers, we love the fact that Mozambique is still rather undiscovered. Our Portfolio includes two amazing beach escapes: the Bazaruto Archipelago and the northern Quirimbas Archipelago. Visitors who combine a safari with the more commercial beaches of Mauritius have no idea on how much they are missing out. Mozambique is renowned for its relaxed, tropical atmosphere and exceptionally friendly people, but by far its biggest draw cards are its expansive beaches, secluded islands and spectacular marine life. With a history of limited coastal development combined with beautiful beaches and amazing numbers of whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, turtles, coral fish and reefs. The setting for this experience is hard to beat.
