New Luxury Accommodation from Cottar's Safaris

The award-wining Cottar’s Safaris has announced the opening of its two brand new tents (one honeymoon and one luxury double) at Cottar’s 1920s Camp, as well as two fully renovated luxury double tents – all 40% bigger.

Cottar’s Safaris is located in the private Olderkesi Conservancy, which borders the famous Maasai Mara in Kenya. Offering a bespoke and truly sustainable safari experience, it is owned and managed by the 5th generation of the Cottar’s family, the oldest established and continuing safari family who have been operating in Africa for more than 100 years. 

All four stunning canvas tents are 538 sq ft (approximately 40% larger in size) - named ‘Molo’, ‘Ndovu’, ‘Athi’ and ‘Kudu’ – boasting spectacular views across the savannah, stylish wooden floors, sumptuous living room areas, ensuite wallpapered bathrooms, all whilst maintaining Cottar’s Safaris’ iconic and romantic 1920s aesthetic.

‘Molo’, the stunning new honeymoon tent, is set away from the camp for added exclusivity with its own gorgeous outdoor bathtub.  For enhanced flexibility, ‘Athi’, ‘Ndovu’ and ‘Kudu’ tents have been furnished with a daybed making it suitable for both double and twin (double + single) set up, as well as for families.

With the addition of these new tents, Cottar’s 1920s Camp now comprises eleven luxury tents - which includes five Luxury Double Tents, two romantic Honeymoon Tents and four open-planned Family Tented Suites, all with ensuite bathrooms, living rooms with cosy fireplaces and plenty of space and privacy.

Cottar’s Safaris excel at everything they do and provide genuinely stunning wildlife and wilderness adventures, engaging in the original spirit and essence of “safari”: an abundance of wildlife, guaranteed privacy and the highest standards of professional guiding.

Using their generational safari knowledge and valuing conservation and community above anything else, Cottar’s Safaris are at the forefront of the future of safaris and have spent the past few years creating engaging and purposeful safari experiences, which not only have a positive effect on the guest, but also on the complex and unique biodiversity surrounding them, as well as on the local Maasai community. 

Available from $1,041 pppn, based on two people sharing on a full board basis. Price includes wildlife drives, walking safaris, Maasai Warrior School and a vast array of experiential and educational activities (excluding park and conservation fees).
