Staying at Cottar’s 1920s camp is like taking a time machine back to the golden age of elegant British safaris.
Located on 6,00- acres of private conservancy, the camp is situated right next to the Masai Mara National Reserve, the latest addition to the 7 Wonders of the World. Each tent is covered in rich warm colors and textures, taking luxury safaris to new heights. Staff members will put hot water bottles at the foot of your bed to heat up the chilly nights, just one example of the thoughtfulness of the staff. The camp has ten tents in total. The camp is situated to ensure that tents are private and quiet whether you are traveling with a family or on your honeymoon. What’s truly amazing about the camp is the sincerity and friendliness of the staff and management; it is a rarity that is a breath of fresh air.
One of the new additions to the camp is the Cottar’s Homestead, a private home designed by Calvin and Louise Cottar and built by hand using indigenous and eco-friendly materials. What is great about this home is that it is the only real private luxury home in the Masai Mara, making sure your experience is one-of-a-kind. The home has breathtaking views onto the savannah plains where guests can enjoy the annual wildebeest migration, a spectacle for all. Cottar’s Private Homestead is rented only on an exclusive basis and comes with a dedicated staff of eight people.
