Bateleur Camp (A private camp with exquisite service on the edge of the Mara Triangle)
Bateleur Camp is part of the ‘andBeyond’ Portfolio, and a sister property to Kichwa Tembo. It is, however, a more private luxury camp. Today, the camp’s vintage theme and Out of Africa glamour is the most recognizable on the higher end of the price bracket, the camps warm hospitality and levels of service will be retained throughout the exciting changes, along with the charm and quintessential luxury that Bateleur has become known for.
Bateleur Camp is located outside of the northern part of the Mara Triangle, on the edge of the Oloololo escarpment. It sits where the riverine forest and the Mara plains meet, providing an authentic dose of African wildlife all year round. Seasonally, around the months of August, September and October, the Great Migration can be seen in the area around the camp!
The camp is only five minutes from its sister camp, Kichwa Tembo. Both camps are entirely self-sufficient with their own amenities and services, but guests at Bateleur Camp are able to use the facilities in Kichwa Tembo such as the pool and lounge areas. As more of an exclusive camp, Bateleur is smaller and more concentrated in terms of its layout.
Each luxury tent has its own private butler to attend to any needs or requests after a long day. The tents also have large beds, soft lighting and modern furnishings, in addition to their stunning canvas nature. They also have private verandahs, bath tubs, two pools, a gym and a spa.
Travelers can share game drives in the Masai Mara National Reserve and in the private concession. This accommodates night drives and bush walks along the Mara River or Oloololo Escarpment. In addition, one can request for a hot air balloon safari over the vast plains of the Masai Mara. There are also cultural village tours and massages for guests (at an additional cost).
