Cottar's 1920s Camp

Cottar’s Camp is an intimate family built camp located in a private reserve near the Masai Mara National Park, in Kenya. With eighty years of Safari service, the Cottar family leads you by the hand in exploring this diverse landscape. The camp provides tents guests in a relaxing setting built with a 1920's antique charm. Dining consists of local bush cuisine, often taken beside the waterfalls or on game drives. The outdoor veranda offers a stunning view of the surroundings and the opportunity to take a bush bath and perhaps a massage on the doorstep of this backdrop is swoon-worthy.  This area has been untouched by any kind of tourism and offers privacy and an abundance of wildlife.
