From the time we landed at the Kichwa Tembo Airstrip to leaving for Serengeti, the four days spent at Bateleur were an experience of a lifetime. First and foremost the crew at the camp. From Esther and Tolu and Karanje and Meshack the Chef at the camp to Omari/Wilson our Ranger at the Masai Mara. The love and warmth we... More

If you've never been in a tented camp, you'll be blown away. From the old world safari tent that greets you on arrival, to the tea served on a petal strewn tray, to the attentive staff (hot water in the bed at night!) and excellent tour guides to the star-filled nights, to the meals eaten under a tree looking out...

We just came back with my wife and four kids (17,16,11 and 6) from the best vacation a family can possibly have. It is not only about all the animals we saw in their natural habitat; it is about immersing yourself in an exciting and unexpected world. The staff could not have been better. Esther, Richard, Titus and our guide... More

THE GOOD: The setting on the escarpment base is pretty and if you're into wildlife, the forest around the lodge rooms is a great place to take relaxing walks and look at the colorful birds and monkeys. The location outside the park has its advantages as you can take reasonably productive night drives here. The guide we had was quite... More

I think I would have liked this resort better if I hadn't come directly from the Finch Hatton resort in Tsavo, which was amazing. The tents were nice but I missed the elegance of Finch. The game drives were much better only bc there are more animals than in Tsavo. The food was okay. They served us outside but I... More

Wow! There are not enough positive adjectives to describe how spectacular and incredible this place truly is. My family and I stayed here while on safari with Micato, and it was our favorite place. The staff is so genuine, friendly and helpful. They really do seem happiest when their guests are happy. They began by greeting us at the dirt... More

What a fabulous place to stay. The experience of being in the legendary Masai Mara is just made so much better by staying here. There are 2 groups of 9 tens - each group has its own dining area and staff, so the feeling is very intimate and special. The tents are spacious, with all the mod cons (including hair... More

The camp is nestled in a forest just outside the Mara reserve. Warthogs and monkeys wander through the camp and past the pool with the same ease as pigeons in other settings. The level of service is great, but what really sets Bateleur apart form other luxury lodgings in the Mara is the quality of the their guides. We had... More

Our group was booked by Sporting Excellence directly with &Beyond. We stayed here for 4 nights earlier this month. After staying at more than 10 different properties in the Mara, I can safely say this was my best experience, and it was the offseason ie well before the 'migration' period. Despite having mainly stayed in lodges and cheaper camps, one... More

We came here and we found the most beautiful hotel. The people here is a real treasure. We feel better than home. We are going back to our country full of great memories. The tents are wonderful and the food is delicious here. I rate this hotel with 7 stars
