Combine all this with retro images from Out of Africa and a Hemingway novel, to visualise one of the original safari outfitters still hosting guests in the Mara: Cottars 1920's Safari Camp. The Cottar family began guiding safaris in the pioneer days for Hemingway and Johnson. Cottars camp is still a beacon for style-conscious wildlife seekers, in a pristine concession bordering Tanzania's Serengeti and Loliondo reserves. Professionally guided bush walks with excellent guides, game drives in open safari vehicles are Cottars' hallmark.
Styled with authentic artefacts, antiques and photo albums, the camp discreetly offers modern service, making guests comfortably at-home in its history: vast white tents with ensuite bathrooms, shaded by Acacia trees, views across plains.
Cottar's Camp accommodates up to 22 guests in authentic white canvas tents, which are spacious and luxuriously furnished. They incorporate original safari antiques from the ',20's, private en suite dressing room and bathrooms, main bedrooms and verandas.
Cottars 1920s Safari Camp, which is situated in the Masai Mara, bordering the Serengeti and Loliondo ecosystem, in an untouched 200,000-acre exclusive concession providing the discerning guests a guarantee of privacy and an abundance of wildlife.

In 2002, Joash Were who has been instrumental in start up of many companies within Kenya and Beyond thought of it wisely that it was time to start up something tourism related. He had worked at great places. Bearing in mind that all the progressive people talk “WE” and not I, he has brought together a great team who are professional in their own rights.
