Bateleur Camp

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.
