Cottar’s Camp is an award winning safari camp that lies within it’s own 7 600 acre private concession. The camp is very close to the infamous Maasai Mara and Serengeti game reserves. Cottar’s has been owned and managed by one oldest safari families in Africa and continue to provide both quality and luxury.
Cottar’s 1920’s safari camp has created the essence of romance with the original canvas tents of the early explorers to Africa. The luxurious design of the accommodation is evident in the amenities that each tent provides. Private decks, terry cloth robes, soft linens and service that is unparalleled.
Cottar’s also has a Bush Villa and Fly Camping – inquire with us for more details.
Cottar’s has nine tents in total. A unique honeymoon tent, four double tents and four family suites, all with en suite bathrooms. The family tents are slightly larger with living rooms and fireplaces. The layout of the camp has been done with your privacy in mind, whether for couples on honeymoon or families with young children.
The camp has two main tent areas for dinners, drinks in the early evenings and also for relaxing during the day. There is a swimming pool for the hotter parts of the day and a spa for some pampering. En suite bathrooms are beautiful and for those more adventurous there is the safari bath or shower. This is a unique way to bathe that the staff will set up for you in the bush close to camp.
The location of the camp allows for short drives to the Maasai Mara game reserve and also allows for night drives that are a highlight. Walking safaris and cultural interactions at the local “manyattas” are also well worth doing.
Professional guides will accompany you on vehicles and foot to show you an abundance of Africa’s iconic wildlife.
Winners of numerous accolades, including ‘Best Tented Camp in the World’, Cottar’s safari camp delivers outstanding safari experiences.
