Cottars' 1920's Mara Safari
Camp (Masai Mara Game Reserve) Kenya
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. Extending an era of luxury and quality,
Cottars Safari Service returns to the original spirit and
essence of 'safari', reminiscent of a golden era - an era of
romance, professional guiding, adventure and elegance.
A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
Drawing on eighty years of Safari service, the Cottar
family will provide guests with the highest standard of
personalized and professional guiding. Tailor made
itineraries ensure the safari provides a unique experience
for our 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.
EXCLUSIVE AREA IN THE MAASAI MARA
The Cottar's 1920's Safari Camp is situated in our
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, while the Mara has a reputation of
being over congested with mass Tourism, we have kept the
secret of our area for years - no hot air balloons flying
overhead, no minibuses buzzing around, no nearby lodges or
low flying aircraft to disturb your special moments. 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 drive'
activities in our community concession.
LUXURY UNDER CANVAS
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 cars, in our authentic or old wooden car.
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.
As our concession is outside the game parks, therefore
guided walks and night 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
On a more self-indulgent note, our masseuse will now be
based full-time at the camp for complimentary massages,
manicures and pedicures. Any other needs that guests may
have will be met by butlers who have been trained to provide
guests with discreet, yet attentive service.
