Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp has had an eventful beginning of the month. The camp has had quite an unexpected new addition to the team. An orphaned male Eland called Bahati (Swahili for ‘Lucky’) recently joined the Cottar’s crew.
After keeping an eye on Bahati roaming the savannah alone for two days with no sign of his mother, the Cottar’s team is very appreciative to the local community for bringing him to the camp. Bahati is a lively character who cheerfully welcomes guest on arrival near the main dining and mess tent and continues to “host” them at meals as he also awaits his daily dose of milk. The Cottar’s team will continue to feed him until he is old enough to start grazing and feeding on his own.
The team eagerly gives him the appropriate care and attention to survive and grow. Bahati is looking very forward to entertaining new Cottar’s guests in all his big-eared, bright-eyed charm.
