Cottar’s Private Homestead is ideal for those looking for a little more privacy. It comes with its own staff and guide and has the feel of luxury home in the Mara. The contemporary African style house is available on an exclusive basis and comprises a large living room, a dining room, a magnificent viewing deck and five en-suite bedrooms. A 25m swimming pool sits in the grounds and is exclusively available to those staying there.
An untouched, exclusive concession bordering the Serenget and the vast Masai Mara
Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp and Cottar’s Private Homestead are situated in an untouched exclusive 27,000-acre concession area in Olderikesi which borders the Serengeti, Mara and LoBiondo reserves.
With both resident and transient populations of lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, elephant as well as over 450 bird species, the vast fertile plains are dense with game. The the area has been classified among the “seven wonders of the world” due to the extraordinary annual migration from July to November when over 1.3 million wildebeest and zebras cross the Serengeti to the Mara in search of greener pastures.
In the far south eastern part of the Maasai Mara, Cottar’s is the first to see the great wildebeest migration coming in and therefore the last to see the herds heading back south into the Serengeti.
