The Ultimate Safari Experience
Masai Mara ♥ Serengeti
10 Luxury En-suite Tents
Making Lifelong Memories
The 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.
The Camp has its own 6,000 acre private conservancy and is situated one kilometre 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 camp has 10 tents in total (one unique honeymoon tent, five double tents and four family suites), all with en suite bathrooms. The family tents have living rooms with fireplaces. 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 mess 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!
A unique wilderness area adjacent to the Serengeti National Park of Tanzania and the Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya.
This area is home to the largest concentration of terrestrial wildlife on earth – the immense wildebeest, zebra and plains game migration that numbers over to 2.5 million animals.
No fences or man made structures to corrupt the wilderness

Culture: Cottars Camp is neighbored by the Maasai community, a tribe that has so far maintained its traditional way of life. Guests who are interested in the vibrant cultural aspects of the Masai can take excursions to various Maasai Villages. Cottars provide a market for beadwork and other traditional handicrafts produced by Maasai women as an additional way of preserving Maasai culture and support for development.
The Cottars Wildlife Conservation Trust( CWCT) will be running a scout operation for wildlife monitoring, anti-poaching and anti-deforestation, and a host of other functions necessary to operate a wildlife conservancy. A gyrocopter has also been acquired to do aerial reconnaissance of activities within the conservancy and wider Mara area to help build a time lapse data base of land use change, wildlife and livestock counts and additional donor funding for this will have a big impact on land use change decisions for the future.
