Calvin and Louise Cottar established Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp in the mid-nineties. The camp is situated in a timelessly unspoiled setting with sunset views stretching to distant horizons of the Masai Mara and the Serengeti plains covered in boundless game.

I went to see the migration for the first time yesterday and it was truly amazing- still in full swing! Millions of Wildebeest gracing the land! And a beautiful crossing!
I can’t give you co-ordinates due to the lack of a GPS- but it was in the region of the Burrangat Plains where we saw the crossing
Near the camp they are very few left but we expect in a week or two the herds to head back on their way out.
I will send through photographs and a video shortly- once I’ve downloaded and compressed the file.
