Cottar's Bush Villa

Discover Cottar's Bush Villa

Cottar's Private Bush Villa is the award-winning addition to the incredible Cottar's 1920s Safari Camp. A luxury villa set in on the border of the Maasai Mara and Serengeti game reserves, the Bush Villa provides an amazing private family retreat, complete with a private swimming pool for a family to enjoy.

Designed by Louise Cottar, the eco-friendly villa offers you privacy with the same amazing level of service offered at the main camp. Award-winning guides and dedicated staff complete the experience, and privately guided game drives are the best way for families to see all the Maasai Mara has to offer. You can enjoy the 10,000-square-foot villa's large living room, dining room and viewing deck alongside the 5 en-suite bedrooms.
