Bateleur Camp was the first stop on our game viewing itinerary, and what a stop! The camp is wonderful, from the welcome at the airstrip and then again at the camp to the game drives, meals and visit to the vegetable garden, we loved every minute. Esther was a vibrant package of enthusiasm, and our driver Jackson was cheerful, knowledgeable...

This was my first visit to Bateleur Camp and I was not disappointed at all. From the moment we arrived at camp we were made to feel welcome by all the staff. The camp is small & because it was the end of the migration there were very few guests and so we felt like it was a camp to...

I spent two nights at this amazing lodge with my parents and brother and could not fault it in any way! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated with great hospitality. From Big Joe the manager to Little Joe our room attendant, they treated us such kindness and would go over and beyond :)...

We had an amazing few days at bateleur camp. I really don't think there is a better cam in the Masai Mara. We had our three kids, 8 14 and 16. Our hosts were very accomodating. Worth every penny!! Will definitely look at booking through and beyond again😊

I'm not sure that we were staying at the same place as Lila24T, but we had excellent and personalized service and the food (we had no buffet meals, was she perhaps staying at the sister camp Kiciwah Tembo?) was incredible during our stay at Bateleur Camp. The dishevelment of which she speaks, I thought was "old world charm" and it...

We stayed here 3 nights of our 25 night African journey. We didn’t see a crossing. This was the main reason to go in my opinion. The main big crossing (which is what you see on TV) is a good 40 minute drive from camp. There are small crossings closer to the camp. The main crossing is where animals are...

This was our fifth and final camp on a three week trip and while the game viewing was excellent and our private guide, Lucy, great, the camp itself was entirely average. The rooms/tents are old and worn down and the central meeting area where all meals are served is equally disheveled (dirty and in need of a major overhaul). In...

We traveled to andBeyond Bateleur Camp as a family of four last month. Having traveled with andBeyond previously in southern Africa, we were somewhat familiar with what to expect. Not only did our experience at Bateleur Camp exceed expectations, it also further validated our confidence in andBeyond as a company. From the minute we arrived at Kichwa Tembo airstrip, until...

We had actually booked andBeyond Kichwa Tembo but due to a miscommunication, we requested for a change of rooms and we were offered a room in Bateleur instead. It's right next door but completely different from Kichwa Tembo. Kichwa is newly renovated and great for families, but Bateleur is PERFECT if you're on a honeymoon as it's private and intimate....

This was the third of the four safari camps we stayed in, and can easily say it was the best. In general, &Beyond seems to pay attention to the details at their camps and it was definitely evident here. The camp itself is in a secluded, jungled area under the Oloololo Escarpment that overlooks the savannah. Views from the main...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set among forests on the very edge of the Masai Mara, each elegant tent at andBeyond Bateleur Camp replicates the style and glamour of vintage Africa. A world of hardwood floors, polished silver and sparkling crystal is juxtaposed against the romance of the open Mara plains, with their abundant herds of wildlife. ... more   less
