Cottar’s Safari Services

Operates in:



Cottar’s Safari Services is a fifth generational family business that curates tailor-made, professionally-guided, sustainable luxury safaris in East Africa.
We donate 20% of our yearly net profits to securing critical wildlife corridors and biodiversity in the Olderkesi area of Kenya that in turn supports the local community.
The Olderkesi Conservancy protects a crucial and fragile wildlife migratory corridor outside of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. If you are conservation and community-minded, or are interested in learning and understanding more about the 4Cs (conservation, community, culture and commerce), then we are the perfect team to guide you on an impactful journey throughout East Africa.
Our motivation goes far deeper than simply providing places to stay; we only recommend destinations and safari properties that meaningfully support conservation, community or cultural projects. We have screened some 100 lodges, camps and villas in East Africa based upon a set of strict criteria that proves those three tiers are being adhered to. For us, as we hope it is for you, it is about worth to the planet and engaging experiences. If we can make you happy on an exceptional, life-changing safari while keeping the natural world safe, then we’re one step forward in our effort for regenerative travel. We aim to ensure that guests who travel with Cottar’s Safari Services return home with a greater understanding of the conservation and community work that their safari contributed to.
