Masai Mara, Kenya

Situated within a 6,000-acre private conservancy, one kilometre from the Masai Mara game reserve in Southern Kenya, Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp offers an unparalleled safari experience, with warm hospitality, impeccable service, first class Maasai guides and an abundance of wildlife including the famed Big Five. The award-winning, tented eco-camp is also one of the only small luxury properties in the area to feature a swimming pool.

Cottar’s Camp enjoys a magnificent setting overlooking the Masai Mara and Serengeti plains, in an area that is home to the largest concentration of terrestrial wildlife on earth. It is the ideal spot to witness the extraordinary annual wildebeest migration.

This enchanting camp has a roaring twenties feel, with a style that combines old-world splendour with modern day comforts. Filled with candelabras, leather trunks and rattan desks, Cottar’s will appeal to discerning couples, honeymooners and families seeking the ultimate “Out of Africa” safari experience.

The camp has ten lavishly appointed white canvas tents, all with four poster beds draped with mosquito nets, antique furnishings, en suite bathrooms and verandas. Each tent also comes with the services of a butler. Family suites with separate living rooms and fireplaces are available. For those seeking the utmost privacy and indulgence, the new Cottar’s Private Homestead is stunning. Built using local materials, this contemporary African-style house has five-bedrooms all offering impressive views, and a team of dedicated staff and guides.

The cuisine at Cottar’s Camp is superb. Enjoy fine dining in the dining tents or in a variety of private settings.

There are plenty of adventures to be had at Cottar’s including day and night game drives, bush walks, river swimming and fishing. Back at the camp, relax in the inviting pool or enjoy a massage. A safari bath or shower is a must. Visits to Maasai villages can also be arranged.
