Cottars Camp overview

The Cottar's safari tradition began in 1919 and now, more than ninety years on, the family continues to provide this unparalled safari experience to discerning clients from all over the world.

Cottar's 1920's Safari Camp is in exquisite hills on a 22,000 acre exclusive wildlife concession bordering the Serengeti and Loliondo reserves in Tanzania, giving the feel of a private game park. 

The camp accommodates up to 28 guests in 10 authentic white canvas tents comprising 5 doubles, 4 family tents and 1 honeymoon tent. All are luxuriously furnished with safari antiques from the 1920s, giving an atmosphere reminiscent of a past era of romance, adventure and elegance. Each tent has private en- suite dressing room and bathroom, as well as a private veranda. 

Activities available include day and night game drives, guided bush walks, river swimming and fishing. Alternatively, guests can relax at the camp, which has a tented reading room with a range of books and magazines. There is a natural rock swimming pool with surrounding hammocks. The camp also offers massages, manicures and pedicures.

In 2012, Cottar's are opening their new luxuriously appointed Cottar's Private House, which can cater for up to 10 people on an exclusive basis. It offers the only real private luxury home in the Masai Mara and features a large living room, a magnificent viewing deck and 5 en-suite bedrooms all with stunning views as well as internet access, satellite TV and DVD. Superb game vehicles and dedicated guides are provided to guests throughout their stay.

Accolades for Cottar's 1920's Safari Camp
Cottar's has received a number of awards including finalist in both 'Best Safari Guiding Team' 2010-2011 and 'Best Safari Property in East Africa' 2009-2010 in The Good Safari Guide and was featured in Tatler Travel Guides '101 Best Hotels' in 2007.

Fair Trade and Responsible Tourism
Cottar's is one of two tourist facilities on the Olderiskesi group ranch, adjoining the Maasai Mara National Reserve and Serengeti National Park. It is a critical dispersal area for the wildlife. Revenue from land rent and game viewing fees go directly to the Maasai landowners. Over 40% of Cottar's staff come from the local community and the camp is involved in building a school and financing teachers' salaries as well as providing medicine for two local clinics. It also supports a Forest Protection Program.
