    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, they return to the original spirit and essence of 'safari', reminiscent of a golden era - an era of romance, professional guiding, adventure and elegance. This camp is situated in the 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 our opinion

    We think this camp is fantastic because of the following:

    History - The Cottar family have been operating luxury tented safaris since 1919, and have been part of the Mara community for over 9 decades.

    Location - Cottar's 1920s is set in exquisite hills on a game concession adjoining the Serengeti, giving the feel of a private game park.

    Swimming Pool - One of the only small luxury properties in the Mara with a pool.

    Highly qualified guides - 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.

    Private House - exclusive accommodation for a family, special occasion, or high profile guests.
