Cottar’s 1920s Family Tents

KENYA / Maasai Mara

Calvin and Louise Cottar established Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp in the mid-nineties. The Cottar Safari tradition began in 1919. Extending an era of luxury and quality, this camp returns to the original spirit and essence of ‘safari’, reminiscent of a golden era ~ an era of romance, professional guiding, adventure and elegance. Situated in an untouched exclusive concession bordering the Serengeti, Masai Mara and Loliondo reserves, the camp and the area guarantee privacy and an abundance of wildlife. This camp is situated in a timelessly unspoiled setting with sunset views stretching to distant horizons of the Masai Mara and the Serengeti plains covered in boundless game. It has its own 6,000 acre private conservancy and is situated one kilometer from the Masai Mara game reserve. The location provides easy access for day and night game drives to the Masai Mara game reserve and the conservancy, game walks, and cultural interactions with the Masai community.

The 4 Family Tented Suites are authentic white canvas luxury tents that each include private ensuite dressing rooms and bathrooms, main bedrooms and verandas, shared sitting and dining room with a living room and fireplace. The entire camp is situated to ensure that tents are private and quiet whether for honeymooners or families with young children.

The camp has two main tent areas for fine dining, drinking, reading and relaxing. An exciting new addition is an amazing pool and spa area where guests can relax after a game drive. Guests can also enjoy a safari bath or safari shower, specifically set up in the savannah should they wish for a genuinely unique way of bathing!
