Cottars 1920 Safari Camp

Have you ever thought of night game drives in the wild, or guided walks in a park. That is what a stay at Cottars 1920s Camp provide.

Cottars 1920's Safari Camp

A 1920's era feel to this camp set near the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya. This camp gives you the authentic feel of that unique era when the word 'safari' became indelibly imprinted on the imagination of the adventurer, past and modern.

The Cottar family provide guests with the highest standard of personalized and professional guiding. Tailor made itineraries ensure the safari provides a unique experience for guests. Recalling an era of luxury and quality, Cottar's 1920's Safari Camp in the Maasai Mara returns to the original spirit and essence of 'safari', reminiscent of a golden era - an era of romance, professional guiding, adventure and elegance, in a timelessly unspoiled setting with panoramic views and boundless game.

The Cottar's 1920's Safari Camp is situated in an extensive and exclusive concession between the Maasai Mara, Serengeti and Loliondo reserves where a few Purko Maasai clan roam. This area has been untouched by any kind of tourism or development and offers the discerning client a guarantee of privacy.

Most importantly, the camp is situated in less congested area of the Mara away from lodges, safari vans and other effects of mass tourism. The area is more akin to being in the expansive Serengeti National Park, but with the advantage of 'off the road' driving due to the very low vehicle density of the area, and the fact that we can walk and operate 'night game drive' activities in this community concession.

The camp accommodates up to twelve clients in authentic white canvas tents, which are spacious and luxuriously furnished and incorporate original safari antiques from the '20's; private en suite dressing rooms and bathrooms (with old-fashioned showers and flushing toilets), the main bedroom and an outdoor veranda.
Guest activities include game drives guided by professional guides in either state of the art modern four wheel drive vehicles. Alternatively, a tented reading room with an extensive array of African and modern books and magazines will allow those who wish to merely while away an afternoon resting and viewing the most splendid panorama.

Being on a concession outside the park, guided walks and night game drives are allowed and highly recommended. By walking, guests can get that much closer to nature, and if an opportunity to track wild game presents itself, our trained trackers will take guests even closer still.
Other services at the camp include massages, manicures and pedicures.
