Cottars 1920s Camp is situated in a private conservancy at high altitude, overlooking the Masai Mara and Serengeti. Enjoy a Kenya luxury safari far from the crush of busy tourist routes and savour uninterrupted game viewing with exceptional guides. Millions of Wildebeest and Zebra migrate across the Serengeti and Masai Mara between July and October every year. See them on the move with Cottars Camp game drives.
The Cottar family have been in the safari and guiding business since 1919, and active members of the Mara community for many generations. You will feel this deeply historic connection when you visit the camp, with its authentic furnishings and welcoming ambiance.
The Cottars Conservancy occupies 6 000 acres of hilly terrain on the border of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The land is pristine and untouched with abundant wildlife. Game viewing is excellent and there are regular sightings of Rhino, Lion, Elephant, Cheetah, Giraffe, Buffalo, Wildebeest and Zebra plus migratory species. Colobus Monkeys and Verreaux Eagles can be seen in the hills nearby.
