Additional information

Soysambu Wildlife Conservancy

The nomadic Maasai had passed through the area for centuries and the name Elmenteita derives from the Maasai Ol muteita for “place of dust”. Then in 1897 one of the first pioneers arrived, after walking over 1,000 km south from Berbera on the coast of Somalia. This was the third Baron Delamere, who dedicated his foresight and fortune to pioneering farming methods in the Rift Valley. He moved to Elmenteita in 1906, where he further experimented with sheep and cattle ranching, advised and assisted by the Maasai – with whom he had a great rapport. He named his farm Soysambu, Maasai for “striated rock” – Sambu is also a cow colour

Lake Nakuru National Park

This is one of Kenya’s two Premium Parks, and is a birdlover’s paradise with over 400 bird species recorded. This park hosts one of the world’s highest concentrations of the Black Rhinoceros and was also the first national Rhino sanctuary.

Masai Mara

Cottar’s maintains the original safari tradition and feel of the 1920’s. An authentic white 1920’s style camp,with no fences or manmade structures (other than roads) for hundreds of kilometres.
The South East Mara has most of the Mara’s Rhino population, so Cottar’s guests see them often. There are also many lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and other migratory wildlife. Colobus monkeys can be seen in the hills behind the camp.
The hills are great for hill walks, where Verreaux’s eagles can be seen on cliff nesting sites, as well as rare Chandler’s reedbuck in the moor-like hill tops.
Cottar’s does have a varied hilly terrain & wilderness feel to its area, making drives private. Pure wilderness, privacy & uninterrupted views ~ no cars or other lodges, no balloons ~ this is what is different about our area.
