Coronavirus Statement

By 20th March 2020News

Dear valued guest / partner,

At all times, and especially in this uncertain climate, we want to assure you that your safety and wellbeing is our highest priority.

We are continuing to monitor and react to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation as it evolves, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to provide every guest, partner and employee with the highest standard of service and care, so you can plan and travel with confidence. We are cautiously optimistic in the fact that Kenya only has three reported cases at the moment and that our government has implemented strict measures to restrict the spread of the virus. 

As you would expect from us, our team has enhanced our already robust cleaning and hygiene standards using the latest COVID-19 guidance from global and governmental health bodies.

In addition, we are committed to providing you with travel planning flexibility as this situation continues to change.

We are offering the following policy at this time:

Cottar’s Coronavirus Policy for Agents  / Cottar’s Coronavirus Policy for Clients 

Get In Touch

For guests whose travel plans in the short term have been affected by temporary government-enacted travel restriction measures please contact us directly at

Please be assured that we will continue to monitor closely the evolving nature of this situation, respond to up-to-the-minute advice, and do everything possible to support our guests, partners, and team throughout this period.

Special Offers: If you would like to get away from the stress this may be causing, we have put together special offers and discounts for you.

We would like to end by saying that we wish to give you the confidence to book, knowing that if you do, we will give you the flexibility to change your travel dates if necessary and without penalty (please see policy above).

Cottar’s is an exclusive and secluded destination, famously ‘away from the crowds’ in the Masai Mara – in our opinion one of the safer areas right now. We wish everyone to stay safe and stay strong. It’s times like these that we are reminded of the things that are truly important in life: our health, our loved ones and looking after those that need support in our communities.

We appreciate your continued support and endorsement; it means everything to us. Let’s keep positive and use this time to reflect and refocus. 

Kind regards,
The Cottar’s Team
