Cottar's 1920 Safari Camp

Cottar's 1920 Safari Camp

Cottar’s 1920 Safari Camp is everything you would expect from a private luxury camp stemming from the African “golden age” of safaris. From as early as 1919, discerning guests have savored the romance, adventure, and elegance of Cottars 1920s. And the exceptional experience continues today.

Original colonial-era antiques furnish the authentic white canvas tents. The six spacious tent suites feature a main bedroom, private en suite bathroom, dressing room, and outdoor veranda. The even larger family tent suites consist of two en suite bedrooms, a private seating and dining area, fireplace, and veranda. Romantically draped beds, unique personal touches, and fine carpets add to the enchanting atmosphere of each suite.

The camp recently enhanced its safari experience by adding a large private house that is completely separate from the camp. It features five en-suite bedrooms, and its exclusive booking includes a dedicated, eight-person staff.

Cottar’s 1920s lies in the Maasai Mara within the private Olderikesi conservance, bordering the Serengeti and Loliondo. The camp is owned by professional guides whose primary goal is to provide a complete safari experience: one that is enjoyable, intellectually stimulating, and encourages guests to immerse themselves in nature.

Bush meals, guided bush walks, cultural visits, day and night game drives, and sundowners all contribute to an experience one guest described as “magical. It was such a special experience that I’ll never forget . . . I was told that Africa (would) get into my heart and it truly has, along with the people of Cottar’s.”

Wildlife viewing and tracking are exceptional at Cottar’s. Especially for the short migration period for the million wildebeest and zebra, guests enjoy seeing the migratory animals “mow” the grass down as well as seeing the predators that inevitably follow the herds. Cattle also work to keep the grass short and green which makes it more palatable for the plains game. Conservation and land management work continue in the area in order to protect the unique African wildlife and landscape.
