My wife and I stayed at Bateleur Camp and did not know what to expect exactly. When we arrived we were stunned by the wonderful welcome with some tea and snacks at the little airfield in the middle of nowhere. During a short drive from the airfield we already passed giraffes, and elephants. The Camp itself was a wonderful experience!... More

I wish I could rate Bateleur Camp with more than five stars. It is such an incredible place that I still can't believe I had the great privilege to stay there. From the minute we landed at the hotel's private airstrip, I was transported into an entirely different world. Giraffe and zebra wandered across the road as our jeep drove... More

We stayed at Bateleur for three nights at the beginning of our 7-day safari with andBeyond. Amazing views of the Masai Mara from the luxury tent and warthogs and baboons around to keep you entertained after the game drives. The service is very good. The butler definitely takes care of every detail. Breakfast was the best out of the 3... More

Bateleur Camp – we came to this camp last and wish we had started here. This is my favorite kind of tent camp – hardwood floors, set among shady trees, and a very nice common area that looks like you are in a Ralph Lauren safari show room – but more relaxed! The staff are great, they made all the... More

We just completed a 12 day safari in Kenya and Tanzania. Our first stop and only stop in Kenya was Bateleur Camp. We had considered removing Kenya from the safari because of the recent changes in the US travel warning, and we are so glad we did not. It was our first stop and the most memorable. We saw 3... More

I cannot say enough about Bateleur or for andBeyond in general. They set the bar high and few can compare. I have stayed at Bateleur for many years and I like most return guests you will always call it home. The staff here will treat you like family, in in time they will become exactly that. The food here is... More

It's been over a year since I've been here now and I still miss it every day. If you want the most memorable 5* holiday experience, this is the place to get it. From the moment we arrived, everyone here was so welcoming. The rooms, the food, the surroundings were all out of this world. We had Moses driving us... More

As a part of our Kenyan holiday, and as safari fans, we wanted to try the Masai Mara. We always book through AndBeyond because of the service they provide, and chose their lodge, the Bateleur for this particular trip. The camp is truly beautiful and offers an ambiance from the heydays of safaris. The common areas are beautiful in décor,... More

We stayed at Bateleur for two nights - and would have loved more. We were originally booked into the (cheaper) sister camp at Kichwa Tembo, but on arrival our guide was directed to the car park for Bateleur. Thinking there was some sort of mistake, we were a little worried and didn't really appreciate the initial welcome, but after being... More

The final two nights of our safari were spent at Bateleur Camp. We had an excellent tent camping experience in the Serengeti and were expecting something similar at Masai Mara. And Beyond takes "tent" camping to a whole different level. Our room was situated in the forest with a spectacular view corridor carved out toward the savanna which provided an... More

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
