The spirit of Cottar’s 1920’s Safari Camp

Located on the Olderkesi Conservancy, bordering the legendary Maasai Mara National Reserve, Cottar’s 1920’s Safari Camp and Bush Villa capture the romantic spirit of safari from a bygone era.

The camp’s 11 spacious tents are sumptuously furnished with safari antiques, four-poster beds, dressing rooms, ensuite bathrooms, outdoor verandahs and the diligent attention of private butlers. Also set within the camp is the Cottar’s Bush Villa, the only private luxury home in the Maasai Mara. Rented only on an exclusive basis, the Bush Villa comes with a dedicated staff of eight, a large living room, a dining room, a magnificent viewing deck, five ensuite bedrooms, a private swimming pool and a dedicated game drive vehicle and guide.

Adhering to the highest standards of guiding, Cottars offers one-of-a-kind day and night game drives, bush walks, swimming and fishing. After an unforgettable day of exploring the plains of the great annual wildebeest migration, catching sight of the Big Five, and respectfully interacting with the local Maasai community, guests can look forward to delectable fine dining, relaxing in the reading room, cooling down in the sparkling pool with a sundowner or indulging in a pampering spa treatment.
