This was as re visit, having previously stayed at Cottar's Camp 30 years ago, when I lived in Nairobi. And wow, it really exceeded expectations. I knew it would be good from previous experience but I have to say that now, it is absolutely lovely. Every little detail had been taken care of by the excellent staff, from the spacious tent with its breathtaking view of the Mara to the tasty, well presented meals, infinity swimming pool , hot water bottles in the bed at night and a very nice touch, a decanter full of sherry and two glasses to greet us in our tent. Plus of course, great safaris and sightings of all the animals you could wish to see, plus brilliantly coloured birds. It was real 'Out of Africa' stuff, that evoked memories of times gone by. Well done to Cottars for a most amazing and memorable experience! I shall return again!
