Bateleur Camp nestles in the cool shade of a forest in the Western Mara, on the edge of the Masai Mara’s endless plains. Its location is so superb that it was used for the iconic closing scenes of the film Out of Africa.
Eighteen opulent, tented suites are situated to make the most of the awe-inspiring landscape. The camp’s communal spaces are comfortable, spacious and inviting, from the cool veranda to the sparkling pool. The quietly attentive service of your personal butler is a welcome indulgence. Bateleur Camp offers an authentic African safari experience with thoughtful contemporary touches.
Year-round Big 5 game viewing and the spectacular Great Migration are best experienced on early morning and late afternoon game drives. Guided bush walks provide a more intimate portrait of the land, while thrilling, spot-lit night drives uncover the Mara’s rich nocturnal life. An early morning hot-air balloon ride over the plains is highly recommended.
Please note: Due to the official Kenyan firearms policy being under review, this camp is not offering guided walking safaris until further notice.
