Review of Cottar's 1920's Safari Camp

Joe Colombano & Marie Louise Kirk

Elegant but not pretentious, Calvin Cotter is a living legend and his team are now our friends: Douglas, Francis, Richard etc. Luxury hotel service and setting, but much more: a noble cause of nature conservation and support to local communities. Plus the thrill of an unfenced camp, with animals roaming freely and your own Masai security. Unique.
