Maasai Mara / Kenya

Cottar’s 1920s Camp provides the romance of safari under cream canvas tents, the style of the bygone era of the twenties, while at the same time supplying the amenities required by today’s modern world travellers. Offering an abundance of wildlife, a guarantee of privacy, and some of the best guides in Kenya.

The camp has nine beautiful canvas accommodation tents in total - two unique honeymoon tents, four double tents and three family tents - all with en suite bathrooms. For communal use, there are three mess tent areas for dining, drinking, reading and relaxing, and an amazing pool and spa where guests can relax after a game drive. Guests can also enjoy a traditional canvas safari bath, a genuinely unique way of bathing. Following a recent extensive refurbishment, Cottar’s 1920s Camp in the Masai Mara now includes the signature Mess tent, as well as the Explorer’s tent, and a stunning new interior for a second honeymoon tent.

Our Experience


Cottar’s 1920s Camp and Cottar’s Bush Villa are situated in an untouched exclusive 7,608- acre concession area in Olderkesi, bordering the Serengeti, Maasai Mara and Loliondo reserves. The luxurious camp and the pristine area guarantee privacy and an abundance of wildlife. Located on the far south Eastern part of the Mara, they are the first to see the great wildebeest migration coming in and we are the last to see the herds heading back South into the Serengeti.

Distance from Wilson Airport in Nairobi, Kenya

40 min flight to Keekorok airstrip followed by 2 hours game drive to the camp

45 min flight to Cottar’s Private Airstrip followed by 15 min drive to the camp

Should you wish to fly in via private aircraft, please let us know and we will assist with the necessary arrangements.
