Sitting in the private and community-owned Olderkesi Reserve, Cottar’s Bush Villa sits at the borders of both Serengeti National Park and the Maasai Mara with awe-inspiring views down over the savannah plains of the Serengeti. The Cottar family was in Kenya before Karen Blixen so they know a thing or two about safari hospitality and comfort.
Five en-suite bedrooms are ranged over the sprawling 10,000 square foot property, each individually-designed with high ceilings and private terraces or balconies. A large living area and a magnificent viewing deck with panoramic views as well as a 25-metre swimming pool complete a picture of ultimate comfort. A team of eight dedicated staff will look after your every need throughout your stay.
If you can tear yourself away from the villa, there is abundant Big Five game viewing both on the reserve and in the Maasai Mara proper (with your private game vehicle and safari guide) while bush walks and fishing can also be arranged with expert guides.
THINGS TO DO:
Private game drives in the Maasai Mara.
Star gazing from your private terrace.
Bush walks with experienced guides.
Witness the great wildebeest migration (seasonal).

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
