This was our first stay at an &Beyond Camp - highly recommended by our travel planner, Linda Friedman (of Custom Safaris in Washington, DC) – and I can guarantee that we will go out of our way to create a reason to stay at others! From our initial greeting at the airstrip; to Milka’s unbelievable high energy and positive attitude,...

Bateleur was my first stay on my first safari and I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. As a solo traveler, I felt incredibly welcome. Bateleur is set at the foot of an escarpment in the Masai Mara. As such, it is a fantastic jumping off point for your daily game drives. The tents are exquisite and the hospitality...

This camp is incredible! We booked our safari with JT Safaris and on his suggestion, we booked a 2 night stay in Kichwa Tembo Tented camp (the sister camp to Bateleur). We were met at the private airstrip by our safari guide Wilson who was brilliant. The camp is only a ten minute drive from the airstrip. When we approached...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at &Beyond Bateleur Camp in October and it was absolutely amazing. The staff is top notch, the game drives are spectacular and the tents are so luxurious. We got up close to some of the most impressive animals who call the Masai Mara home. If you are visiting, you must request Benedict as...

On a Micato Grand Safari in October 2012, we were fortunate enough to stay two nights at Bateleur Camp. This was hands-down our favorite tented camp on safari! The luxury (in every sense of the word) tents are aesthetically beautiful, well designed and thought out. The view of the Masai Mara from the tent is magical and quite spectacular to...

This is the best place to enjoy a real african experience. We slept in a tent, but the tent had all the comfort you can imagine. The staff was very professional and passionate about nature. We could have a very close contact with a masai tribe. The animals were always very close. We got struck by Africa there.

We stayed 3 nights at the Bateleur Camp but wished we had stayed longer. Our tent was quiet and peaceful apart from the sounds of the wild animals and insects. Our Ranger Moses was knowledgeable, friendly and great fun. We enjoyed an early morning Hot Air Balloon over the Mara and it was spectacular, after you have a champagne breakfast...

From the moment we were greeted at the airstrip with a cool,refreshing (and slightly alcoholic!) fruit punch to the moment we were waved off 3 days later, everything about our stay was just magical.
