Cottars 1920s Camp is located on 22,000 acres of private land within the Masai Mara National Reserve. The Cottar safari tradition, which was established in 1919 when members of the European aristocracy flocked to East Africa in search of ‘big game, remains unchanged.
Nearly 90 years, this originally family-run camp continues to provide an unparalleled safari experience for the truly discerning clients. Cottars excel in the provision of the original essence of ‘safari', while the camp is reminiscent of a bygone era of romance, adventure and unparalleled elegance.
Extending an era of luxury and quality, Cottars return their guests to the original spirit and essence of ‘safari'. The camp is reminiscent of a golden era - an era of romance, professional guiding, adventure and elegance.
The camp is located in the south-east Masai Mara National Reserve, bordering the Serengeti and Loliondo reserves. Located in an untouched exclusive private concession, the location guarantees privacy and an abundance of wildlife.
