Cottar's 1920's Safari Camp
Cottar's has been providing an incredible safari experience for over 80 years. Cottar's 1920's Safari Camp provides that same luxurious elegant feel that was felt way back when it all began, even taking guests out on game drives in old time vehicles to add to the magic Cottar's provides.
