Tatler Travel Guide
"‘Nobody knows the bush better or can guide you more safely… Not only were we able to see places of astonishing beauty to which more regular safari outfits never go, but Calvin was able to educate us by sharing his unprecedented knowledge of animal behavior."




Cottar's Safari Service
Nearly a century since 1919, Cottar's Safari Services has been organizing bespoke safaris to Africa for discerning travelers and African specialist travel agents.  The service provides advice on where to go, develops personalized itineraries, and organizes expeditions to far flung places, accompanied by our hand-selected professional safari guides.  Many of our safaris have been written about in classic and contemporary Africana and safari history books.

We can organize a breadth of African experiences - from month long remote adventure expeditions to unexplored South Sudan to honeymoon safari and surf trips to family eco-lodge and cultural visits. We are in the business of making lifelong memories for our guests, providing just the right amount of adventure, adrenaline, elegance and comfort. Safaris can be organized in mobile tents, at our award-winning Cottar’s 1920s Camp in the Masai Mara, or in our private Bush Villa combined with other camps, lodges and locations in East Africa.

For safaris and trips that include properties outside East Africa we work with Royal African Safaris to create a meticulous and highly personalised itinerary for you.
