Cottar's is open and Wildebeest are coming


Last week President Kenyatta eased lockdown restrictions for travel to and around Kenya. International flights to Kenya are open, the number of Covid-19 cases are relatively low and we welcome visitors back to our beautiful country and to our camp and bush villa in the Masai Mara AND the Great Migration is on its way back to the Mara. 

The great wildebeest migration is one of the most phenomenal natural shows in the world and this year will be one of the best years ever to witness it. Normally camp is booked out up at least 18 months to 2 years ahead but because of the pandemic, there are still some gaps and we'd love to welcome your guests. 

Speaking to Enock (Cottar's Guide), he is in close contact with colleagues across the border. Enock has received reports of great numbers of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle, starting to build up nicely in the Northern Serengeti ready to cross back into Kenya and the Masai Mara soon. It is not too late to book a last minute stay with us to witness this incredible spectacle between June and October 2021!
