Today all over Africa the spirit of these bygone years lives on in luxury safari camps, where you will find stylish decor, comfortable beds, hot showers and ensuite bathrooms. Gourmet food is cooked for you by expert chefs and accompanied by fine wines. Chilled drinks around the campfire are the perfect way to end a day, under a star strewn night sky. In static camps you can also relax in beautifully designed communal areas including lounges, thatched bars, libraries and swimming pools.
Choosing our favourite luxury camp is hard, but Cottars Safari Camp in Kenya deserves a special mention. It exudes the style and spirit of the 1920s era, with an air of sophistication and vintage luxury on its own private conservancy, just one kilometer away from the Masai Mara. It has been looking after safari clients here for over 80 years and has exceptional levels of service and elegance, alongside highly experienced wildlife guides, that make a stay here extra special.
