Set on the fringes of a riverine forest, overlooking the vast, game-filled plains of the Mara, this tented camp offers world-class style in the African bush.
In addition to an excellent year-round concentration of animals, the camp lies directly in the path of Africa’s spectacular Great Migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti, Tanzania, to the Masai Mara in Kenya. This is indeed nature at her most theatrical, offering an unsurpassed African wildlife experience.
Many of the communal areas of Bateleur Camp are housed in a beautiful building – stone walls under a classic canvas roof supported by tree trunks. It is open fronted, providing amazing views through the forest and onto the rippling plains of the reserve. The inner space is open plan and includes a lounge, dining room and library. The lounge is on an upper level and features plush sofas and armchairs with plenty of comfortable cushions!
Vases of fresh flowers and explorer-style artefacts adorn the coffee tables, while a fireplace yields wonderful warmth during the colder climes. Books are available from the camp’s library, essentially a tall bookcase slightly set back within a side wall. The dining area begins on the lower level of the building and flows out onto a delightful deck with lots of room for guests to sit around tables, relax, and enjoy a meal. The camp’s swimming pool is surrounded by trees and sunloungers, creating a shady haven in between activities!
Bateleur’s guest accommodation is connected to the main building via paved pathways through the verdant grounds. It comprises 18 tented suites. Each unit is raised well off the ground on sturdy timber beams – and the same beams also support a pitched roof. A short flight of steps at the front of the tent leads onto a veranda with a pair of armchairs and a small table, perfect for taking a break and gazing out over the reserve! Inside each tent, there is a large double bed or twin beds, storage space, and a writing desk and chair.
The walls are classic canvas, the floors are polished hardwood, the palette is natural with gold tones, and the general effect is effortless safari chic! The en-suite facilities are located at the back of each tent – they consist of flush toilet, double washbasin and shower. Each tent also has a hairdryer and a safe.
Activities at Bateleur are excellent!
