Cottar’s Safaris are luxurious safari properties located on the 7600 acre Olderkesi Conservancy which adjoins the Maasai Mara. This is the best possible location, a private game rich conservancy where guests get up-close wildlife sightings without having to compete with other tourists and at the same time next to the Maasai Mara with its awe inspiring annual migration, one of the seven wonders of the world.
Besides Big Five viewing with the best guides in Kenya, Cottar’s has recently developed some unique immersive guest experiences:
Maasai Warrior School
The Maasai Warrior School showcases cultural and work skills a Maasai warrior needs in his daily life. Skills that are passed on from one generation to the next. The Maasai Warrior School includes fire making, spear throwing, bow and arrow practice, Maasai jumping, dancing and singing, and tracking.
Medicinal Plant Walk
Letilet is Cottar's in-house Il Torobo hunter gatherer. A documentary on his life has had 9.2 million views on Youtube. Learn from Letilet about the medicinal values of the flora that grows on the conservancy and how it is used in the community.
The Bush Bubble Bath
Bubble bath, champagne and views across the Maasai Mara.
Cottar’s Safaris Accommodation
The Bush Villa is a private 5 bedroom luxury villa with its own pool, safari vehicle and dedicated guide. The villa enjoys sweeping views across the Maasai Mara into Tanzania. The high level of privacy found at Cottar’s is what has attracted members of the British royal family and celebrities like Robert Redford, George Lucas and Keira Knightley.
The Cottar’s 1920s Camp has 9 luxury tents from one bedroom to larger family tents and even Honeymoon tents along with spacious common areas all with an Out of Africa vibe.
