Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp is a superb, stylish camp located on its 7,000 acre private concession on the south-eastern side of the Masai Mara. The camp is set on a hilltop with views for a dozen miles all the way to Tanzania, across rolling hills and expansive open plains dotted with acacia trees.
This elegant camp is owned by Calvin and Louise Cottar, who have been operating safaris for many years. The 9 huge tents are spread out across the hillside affording fine views, and little colonial touches abound, from historical photographs to artefacts from a bygone era. Within the same area as the Safari Camp, there is also Cottar’s Bush Villa, which sleeps 12 and is perfect for a multi-generational stay. It comes with its own 25m swimming pool, and eight members of staff who will create for you an unforgettable stay.
Cottars’ private concession ensures an exclusive safari as guests can expect to encounter no other tourists or vehicles, however, you can also venture further afield into other parts of the Mara following the huge migrating herds in the company of the highly expert guides. Cottar’s can also offer an array of more diverse activities including river swimming, bush meals, cultural visits, and fishing.
