Cottars Bush Villa

Masai Mara, Kenya


Stay at Cottar’s Bush Villa

This lovely Bush Villa is located on the border of the beautiful Masai Mara and Serengeti game reserves. It has an incredible view of the Savannah Plains which is where the great annual wildebeest migration occurs. It is possible for 10 guests to stay here comfortably as there are 5 spacious rooms, and it also has its own private swimming pool. When you are here, you will still have access to the most professional guides in the area, while also enjoying the luxury of total privacy.

There is also the opportunity to experience a tour of the life of a hunter-gatherer. You will spend a few hours roaming the area surrounding the villa with a local Masai and learn about the traditions of everyday life. Witness his enormous knowledge of plants and how they can be used for healing. You can also learn arrow practise, Masaii dancing, singing, beading and tracking too. There is also hot air ballooning available where you are sure to get a fabulous view of the Masai Mara from above. Only forty five minutes away there is a waterfall which is great for swimming and you could also try your hand at fishing too as catfish are known to lurk in some parts of the river.

I went on an adventure of a lifetime to Kenya, planned by True Travel. Borana was the perfect introduction to Africa – the staff were fantastic, the lodge very comfortable and I had amazing wildlife sightings. Then the helicopter flight and night out with Andrew (the real Crocodile Dundee) was an experience of a lifetime; we went scorpion hunting, crocodile catching, swimming in lakes and flew over flamingos. All in all, everything was fantastically planned and the service was brilliant. I’m looking forward to the next adventure!
