Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

Established by the Cottar family, Cottar's 1920s Safari Camp evokes the timeless romance of the golden age of safari in the heart of its own private conservancy bordering the Maasai Mara.

Accommodations at the camp consist of ten luxury tents. These are comprised of one unique honeymoon tent, five double tents, and four family suites. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with both an indoor and outdoor shower as well as a spacious lounge area. In addition to which, each suite enjoys a private deck with its own splash pool and jacuzzi, the perfect spot to relax and take in the beauty of the area. A safari bath or safari shower, specifically set up in the savannah is a unique experience.

For even more privacy and secluded luxury, the camp has added the new Cottar’s Bush Villa. Rented on an exclusive basis, the villa comes with a dedicated staff of eight comprised of one waiter, one house keeper, a chef and kitchen helper, two security guards, a guide, and a wildlife spotter. The villa is over 10,000 square feet in size, and features a large living room, dining room, a magnificent viewing deck, and 5 en-suite bedrooms, all with stunning views. Guests can enjoy privately guided game drives, night game drives, bush walks, swimming and fishing. There is also a fully functioning 25 M lap pool.

The camp is set in a 7,000-acre private conservancy only a little over half a mile from the Masai Mara Game Reserve. It also borders the world-famous Serengeti as well as the Loliondo reserves guaranteeing an abundance of game animal sightings. Many animals live in the region including lions, leopards, buffalo, elephants, colobus monkeys, cheetah, and gazelle. Though of course everyone comes to the Serengeti and Maasai Mara for the famous Great Migration when close to two million wildebeest, zebra and other antelope gather up their young and start the long trek north to the Serengeti. The Cottar family have been running luxury camps since 1919 and have been a part of the Maasai Mara community for over nine decades.

There are plenty of activities available. Morning and afternoon game drives explore the private conservancy and Maasai Mara. Night game drives follow the nocturnal animals. Guided bush walks take in the finer details with an intimate look at the bush and its wildlife. Cultural visits take in the local Maasai villages. Fishing and swimming is available in the river.

The camp spreads out over half a mile and has two main mess tent areas for fine dining, drinking, reading, and relaxing. An exciting new addition is an amazing pool and spa area where guests can relax after a game drive. The camp is gold eco-rated for eco-tourism and supports many community and conservation programs.
