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.
