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.

CLASSICS MAP

From Príncipe to Mahé and all the good places in-between, our much-loved Classics Map is growing and will now incorporate the outer islands of Seychelles. Ready by mid-February, please let us know if you would like a copy posted to you, otherwise, they will be available on our sales visits and at trade shows.

Take a sneak peak to see who will be on our stand and reach out if you would like to set up meetings.

South Africa

WHAT WE LOVE: Many of our team are South African and we are all extremely passionate about the country, its people, wildlife and scenic beauty – who would not be with an office in the Cape winelands! But most of all we are proud of what South Africa has achieved and the challenges we have overcome. It is a country that has diversity as its hallmark. From lush forests, vast savannahs, beautiful beaches, arid semi-desert, dramatic mountain ranges to its cosmopolitan cities, ‘Big Five’ wildlife reserves, winelands, gourmet restaurants and colourful shanty towns: South Africa has all any visitor could ask for. Strong on adventure, sport, nature and wildlife, it is also a pioneer and global leader in responsible tourism.
