Description

&Beyond Bateleur Camp

Masai Mara National Reserve

The &Beyond Bateleur Camp is nestled at the base of the Olololo Escarpment which is the rim of the Great Rift Valley. This is Kenya’s iconic Masaai Mara National Reserve and home to the great migration. Guests enjoy excellent year round game viewing with it’s proximity to the reserve.

Bateleur camp is both romantic and completely private with an atmosphere of the original safari style in East Africa. The camp sits just below the final scene location of the “Out of Africa” film.

Accommodation

The camp has 9 Tented Suites and each one is beautifully decorated with polished floors. Interiors are reminiscent of colonial times and you have your own personal butler to ensure you want for nothing! The tents are spacious with stunning glass enclosed bathrooms, Victorian tub and outside shower area.

A private deck and sunken lounge area complete the tented suites with ample space to relax and enjoy the scenery.

The dining area and veranda have views of the endless game-filled plains of the Mara. After dinner you can enjoy a glass of port in front of the fire, or choose to dine in the bush at both dinner and breakfast. Dinners are served in a clearing in the bush under a star-studded sky.

Safari Activities

Adventures include twice-daily game drives with the afternoon drive ending with a spot-lit night drive. The camp also offers a wide range of additional activities such as bush walks, hot air balloon safaris and community excursions with the local Masaai.
