Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Cottar’s 1920s Camp

overview

Safari Highlights

Surely one of the most eccentric camps in Africa, Cottar's is nonetheless as authentic as they come, offering genuine luxury and a stunning location.

Private Concession

The camp is located on a private 6,000 acre conservancy just east of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Looking south over the Mara plains and the Serengeti beyond, the concession allows the flexibility to enjoy game walks, bush meals and other activities that are not allowed in the main reserve. the concession also allows you to interact with and learn about the Maasai that support and benefit from the conservancy.

Exquisite Surroundings

Ten tents, including four family suites and a honeymoon suite, all authentically designed with family heirlooms from the Cottar family, provide the plushest of places from where to enjoy the Mara. Two separate mess tents and the recent addition of a spa and pool complete the package, with the icing on top being the ability to enjoy a hot bath run for you outside your room, overlooking the plains by the camp.
