Cottar's 1920s Safari Camp
Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp has a decade’s long tradition in the Masai Mara stretching back to 1919. The family-owned luxury tented camp is located on Cottar’s private concession a short 1km from the Masai Mara National Reserve.
The Masai Mara is Kenya’s most recognized and most visited wildlife sanctuary. The national reserve is part of the larger Serengeti-Mara ecosystem and borders Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. This year round game viewing destination also plays host to one of nature’s greatest spectacles. From June to October, visitors will be amazed as millions of wildebeest, zebra and Thompson’s gazelle make their way across the Masai Mara plains in search of fresh grazing before moving back into the Serengeti.
Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp is a secluded, luxury tented safari camp situated in a private 6000 acre conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara. Cottar’s has 11 authentic canvas safari tents including a unique honeymoon tent plus an additional private house.
