Bateleur Camp

Explore Kenya

Owned by andBeyond, Bateleur Camp is situated on a private concession on the western border of the Masai Mara, in the location where Out of Africa's famous final scene was filmed. This romantic and totally private camp reflects the atmosphere of Kenyan Colonial safaris. The excellent positioning of Bateleur affords guests wonderful vistas across the surrounding plains, with zebra, wildebeest and warthog making regular appearances.

Nestled in a lush riverine forest are 2 intimate camps each with 9 spacious suites which epitomise classic elegance. Each has a shingle roof, wooden doors and a private deck overlooking the vast game-filled plains of the Masai Mara, whilst luxuriously furnished with gleaming wooden floors and wood-framed beds, overhead fan, twin hand basins, shower, cupboards, leather chairs and a writing table.

The camp also features a deep lap pool looking out across the Mara Plains. Your private butler will serve you delicious Pan-African cuisine in the dining area, on the veranda or in a romantic setting under the African stars. Bush breakfasts, balloon safaris and candlelit dinners offer an unforgettable experience of the African bush, adding the perfect touches to a romantic trip.

We had an amazing experience at Bateleur Camp and do not have anything negative to say. Every single person went out of their way to make our experience wonderful. The camp manager was genuinely interested in our game experiences and we chatted with us every day. The tracker Doug was fantastic and passionate about his job. The private dinner they had for us was such a special surprise that was the highlight of my trip. I would definitely recommend this camp to my friends!

Just phenomenal - I cried EVERY DAY at the kindness of all the staff and just being overwhelmed by how much Kenya touched my heart. Would go back to Bateleur in a heart beat - they said welcome home when we arrived which I though a bit cheesy - when I left I understood - they had made it a perfect home for our stay. Noteable staff who were AWESOME - Jonathan, chef Joseph, game driver Daniel, Masibo, Benson and Esther.

My 3 night stay at Bateleur Camp was my first experience of a camp and it was absolutely amazing. I arrived at the airstrip to be greeted by staff for the 20 minute trip to the camp. Along the way I saw a vast array of wildlife grazing, elephant, hippo, giraffe just to mention a few, I was amazed it was just like an open range zoo. My accommodation too was excellent, looking out over the wide open plains at the zebra and other animals grazing and waking up to the most spectacular sun rises. The permanent tents were well appointed with all the facilities of a hotel and very comfortable. The staff were great, nothing was too much trouble and the food and service was excellent. The game drives were amazing with our guide making sure that we saw as much possible in the three days, a big lion pride with cubs, cheetahs stalking, black rhino, hippos, zebra, elephant, it was just amazing the only one of the big 5 we didn't see here was the leopard. Everything was really well done, from tea and coffee on the morning drives and then drinks at sunset on the wide open plains. I would go back to this camp again and would recommend it highly to others.
