Created by Calvin and Louise Cottar in the mid-nineties, the camp has its own 7,000-acre private Olderkesi Conservancy and is situated 1km from the Maasai Mara game reserve. The location provides easy access for day and night game drives to the Maasai Mara game reserve and the conservancy, game walks, and cultural interactions with the Maasai community.
The camp has 9 luxurious tents in total (one unique honeymoon tent, four double tents and four family suites), all with private ensuite bathrooms and stunning views. The entire camp is situated to ensure that tents are private and quiet whether for couples or families with young children.
The camp has two main mess tent areas for fine dining, drinking, reading and relaxing. An exciting new addition is an amazing pool and spa area where guests can relax after a game drive. Guests can also enjoy a safari bath or safari shower, specifically set up in the savannah should they wish for a genuinely unique way of bathing!
