Like Living a Dream...

I am overwhelmed by the prospect of having to adequately review Cottar's Camp. This was, by far, the most exceptional part of our African adventure. From the time we were greeted at the airstrip by the beautiful Maasai guide, Maku, until we had to say farewell, there was nothing in these four days short of pure magic.

The camp itself is exquisite. I absolutely loved the colonial motif, and was fascinated by the stories of the Cottar family's life in Africa for something like five generations. We were lucky to meet Calvin Cottar who is a wonderful, generous, worldly man. It was our 20th Anniversary, and the camp went to great lengths to give us a special experience, which I will not share because I don't want others to compare their experience to ours.

We stayed in the impossibly romantic Honeymoon Tent and indulged in the complimentary "Bush Bath" which will always be a peak memory. The view from the room was breath-taking, the bed as comfortable as one can imagine, and the shower hot and voluminous.

The meals were served European style, at one large table. There we met and dined with lovely folks from the U.S., Europe and Africa-- and just enjoyed the company and conversation so very, very much. The food was perfectly fresh and delicious.

I actually cried leaving here. This is a destination that will capture your imagination and soul.

Good but not as good as they think they are

Cotters is good, but just something missing, guides and staff are very nice, but the management wasn't as hands on as at other camps.

Great wildlife once you drive across sand river into southeast Mara, but not much near camp no good for short game drives need full day out. I liked that the guides joined you for dinner

Cottars 1920s Camp review

We really enjoyed the 1920 theme and the wonderful relaxed atmosphere created by the staff. We were suprised that although there were animals by the camp we had to travel some distance onto the Mara for any of the big five.

Once on the Mara the game veiwing was excellent, the high light being surrounded by thousands of wilderbeast and zebras on the migration. Wonderful experience.
