Cottar's 1920s Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

Located on the outside boundary of the National Reserve, in a private area, in the SE corner of the Mara. The game viewing is not as concentrated as some other areas so they take a quality over quality safari approach. Incredible for families and they have a Bush Villa that accommodates 12.  

The award-winning Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp has its own private conservancy and is situated one kilometer from the famous ‘seventh’ natural wonder of the world, the Maasai Mara in Kenya and the Tanzania Serengeti game reserve. Owned and managed by the oldest established and continuing safari family in Africa, it extends an era of luxury and quality and returns to the original spirit and essence of ‘safari’.

The camp has nine tents in total (one unique honeymoon tent, four double tents and four family suites), all with en-suite bathrooms. The family tents have living rooms with fireplaces. The entire camp is situated to ensure that tents are private and quiet whether for honeymooners or families with young children.

Cottar’s provides the romance of safari under cream canvas tents, the style of the bygone era of the twenties, while at the same time supplying the amenities required by today’s modern world travelers. Offering an abundance of wildlife, a guarantee of privacy, and the highest standards of professional guiding in a luxurious and authentic camping environment.  The activities are tailored to give you the most authentic African safari experiences with a guiding style that is different from other safari operators. We emphasize the quality not the quantity of the wilderness and wildlife, the emotional intelligence of the guide to become your friend in a short time, and to have our guests appreciate and join the pace of the wilderness.
