Kenya has long been known for its exceptional wildlife and awe-inspiring landscapes, making it one of the world’s most sought-after and revered safari destinations. However, it is undoubtedly the result of the welcoming and forward-thinking nature of its people that it continues to thrive today.
Touch down into the world-renowned Maasai Mara for the beginning of your cultural exploration of this fascinating country. The Maasai people, for which this region is named, are one of the very few indigenous tribes who have worked to retain most of their traditions and way of life. Throughout your stay at the exclusive Cottar’s Bush Villa, you will have the chance to engage one-on-one with a number of Maasai guides, warriors, chefs, beading experts and rangers, all of whom are committed to the creation of a new conservation model that both benefits their livelihood and preserves the natural environment.
On arrival at this award-winning lodge, you will find yourself right in the middle of the Olderkesi Conservancy, an area of over 7,600 acres that is owned by the Maasai Community and managed on their behalf by the team at Cottar’s. A warm welcome awaits, with the next four days providing you with ample opportunity to get to know the friendly and hugely knowledgeable crew who are dedicated to your stay, offering you the chance to swap stories and learn about their lives, communities, and fascinating histories.
