It’s been an exciting couple of weeks at Cottar’s 1920s Camp. The Great Annual Migration is in full swing and has definitely not disappointed this year.
Hundreds of thousands, possibly millions, of wildebeest came across the Tanzanian/Kenyan border right in front of camp before heading west towards the infamous Mara River. It has been a season filled with action. All the carnivores are fat and happy after their annual feast and most of the mature female lions are setting out on honeymoon now.
An exciting morning game drive left guests speechless and in awe of the power of the wild as they witnessed a new gang of six lions, aptly dubbed the “Kali Brothers” meaning “fierce”, bring down a mature bull buffalo. Considering that there are thousands of wildebeest up for the taking with half the effort needed to bring them down, this was a daring move on the lions’ behalf as taking down a buffalo is often a dangerous affair.
Satisfied with the spectacular sightings from the action packed morning game drives, a few of our guests took the opportunity to take an afternoon off to enjoy everything that camp has to offer. One family in particular opted to stay behind and play volleyball every afternoon with the staff and truly became part of the Cottar’s Camp family.
What a fantastic way to blend staff and guest in such a fun and sporting manner!
