The award-winning Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp, located in Kenya, East Africa, is proud to share the opening of this exclusive Mara villa. Called ‘Cottar’s Bush Villa,’ it borders the latest addition to the Seven Wonders of the World, The Maasai Mara National Reserve, and is also just one kilometre from the Tanzania Serengeti game reserve.

The villa was designed by Calvin and Louise Cottar and built by hand using indigenous and eco-friendly materials and is situated. The villa is managed within the same area as Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp, and guests can enjoy the same standards and level of service for which the camp is known. For those that want absolute privacy in the Maasai Mara, combined with dedicated and discrete staff, award-winning guides, and an abundance of wildlife, Cottar’s Bush Villa offers the only real private luxury home in the whole game reserve.

Cottar’s Bush Villa has a breathtaking view onto the savannah plains that carry the great annual wildebeest migration, and is set amidst a backdrop of the Olderikesi Hills. Guests can enjoy privately guided game drives, night game drives, bush walks, swimming and fishing. Cottar’s Bush Villa is rented only on an exclusive basis, and comes with a dedicated staff of eight. The villa is over 10,000 square feet in size, and features a large living room, dining room, a magnificent viewing deck, and five en-suite bedrooms, all with stunning views and a new 25m swimming pool. The villa has internet access throughout, satellite TV and DVD, and is powered with electric and solar energy. A dedicated game drive vehicle(s) and guide(s) are provided to guests throughout their stay.

A masseuse is available on a daily basis, and private body guards and personal exercise trainers can be made available (at an additional cost), should they be requested. Guests staying at Cottar’s Bush Villa can, should they wish to do so, make use of the Cottar’s 1920s Camp swimming pool, shop and other facilities.

“For those who find themselves hooked on Africa, there comes a time when the want something different, …not every guide can take you there. Some do not have the taste for it and some do not have the know-how, but Calvin Cottar and his 1920s safaris come with the kind of pedigree and promise that is hard to resist.” – Financial Times

For the discerning client, Cottar’s Bush Villa offers complete privacy, with a secure and secluded road leading to the villa – perfect for those who want to immerse themselves in nature in a luxurious and enchanting African setting.
