The Cottar Safari tradition began in 1919. Over 90 years on they continue to provide an unparalleled safari experience to discerning clients in Africa.
Extending an era of luxury and quality, Cottars return to the original spirit and essence of ‘safari’, reminiscent of a golden era – an era of romance, professional guiding, adventure and elegance. The majority of Cottar’s guides have their impressive Gold Level KSPGA qualification – making them the most highly qualified guides in any camp or lodge in Kenya.
Situated in the South East Masai Mara, in an untouched exclusive concession bordering the Serengeti and Loliondo reserves, the camp and the area guarantee privacy and an abundance of wildlife. In this area are most of the Mara's Rhino population and so guests do have regular sightings and Colobus monkeys can be seen in the hills behind the camp. These hills are great for walking where Verreaux Eagles can be seen on cliff nesting sites as well as rare chandlers reedbuck in the moor like hill tops.
The camp accommodates up to 28 guests in authentic white canvas tents, which are spacious and luxuriously furnished. They incorporate original safari antiques from the '20s, private ensuite dressing rooms and bathrooms, main bedrooms and verandas. Four family tented suites each consist of two ensuite bedrooms with a shared sitting / dining room between them.
