You all know about Cottar’s 1920’s Safari Camp, well they have just opened their wonderfully authentic little sister camp – for those of you seeking something much more adventurous and authentic and for those wanting to immerse yourselves within the local heritage and culture.
This small intimate tented camp has only 7 tented rooms, each of the tents have their own private bathroom within a small cubicle at the rear of the tent, water basin, hot bucket shower and a long drop loo.
Activities you can enjoy within this camp are morning and evening game drives both in and around the Masai Mara reserve and their Olderkesi Conservancy. Spend a few hours with the Letilet/Il Torobo hunter gatherer tribes where you can learn the traditions and techniques of a proper hunter gatherer. Lunch with Conservationists who will pass on knowledge of what they are doing to help protect the area, wildlife and local ecosystem for the next generation. Enjoy a bush walk (up to 3 hours steady walking) over to the Olentoroto Hill to Cottar’s 1920’s Camp for some lunch – the walks allow you to truly enjoy the surrounding area and get that bit closer to nature and its surroundings. And finally, if you want to keep your fitness up, then perhaps try and out run a Masai Warrior?!
All of the profits that are generated at Cottar’s Conservation Camp go directly to the Cottar’s Wildlife Conservation Trust and local Community Projects.Show Less
