Cottars 1920s Camp
Located on its own private conservancy of 6,000 acres (24 km²), Cottar’s 1920s Camp is owned and run by Calvin and Louise Cottar who established this luxurious camp in the 1990s. Designed in an authentic 1920s style, the camp follows the iconic ‘Out of Africa’ style – expect campaign furniture, pith helmets and antiques.

Cottar’s is certainly one of the best camps in the Mara. With three gold guides (the most at any property in Kenya) and its own private concession, the Ol Derikesi Conservancy, to explore, the activities here will not disappoint. Thus, although no longer the most stylish and luxurious option in the Maasai Mara region (having been overtaken by one or two newer camps in recent years), for the guiding and wilderness safari experience, as well as for its general atmosphere and facilities, we still think Cottar's is worth the relatively high price tag.
