Cottars 1920 Safari Camp, Maasai Mara, Kenya
Step back in time to 1920s Kenya and the ultimate Out of Africa experience at Cottars 1920 Safari Camp; a throwback to an era of luxury and quality in the original spirit of a ‘safari in the famous Maasai Mara. It’s the styling here that makes a stay here so unique and memorable. Huge cream canvas tents ensure a supremely comfortable stay, complete with original safari antiques collected over the decades: sepia-coloured photos adorning the walls, brass lanterns hanging from the ceiling and wind-up gramophone.
Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp enjoys a magnificent setting overlooking the Maasai 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 annual wildebeest migration.
This enchanting camp has a roaring twenties feel, with a style that combines old-world splendour with modern day comforts. The camp has ten white canvas tents, all with four poster beds draped with mosquito nets, antique furnishings, en suite bathrooms and verandas. Each tent also has a butler. Family suites with separate living rooms and fireplaces are available. For those seeking the utmost privacy, the new Cottar’s Private Homestead is stunning.
The cuisine at Cottar’s 1920s Safari 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 including day and night game drives, bush walks, river swimming and fishing. Back at the camp, relax in the pool or enjoy a massage.
