"I felt like I had stepped onto the set of Out of Africa — all the glamour and style of vintage Africa, combined with modern day comforts. Most memorable moment was the excitement of anticipating what animals we were going to see on our morning game drive as I woke up to the sound of birds and monkeys and the... More

Having lived and travelled in Africa most of my life, this place surpases all dreams and expectations. It was our honeymoon and I can't imagine what more they could have done to make our stay more beautiful. Luke, Abraham, Meshak......ALL of them....and our waiter, William, who had a tear as we departed. I will return more than once I'm sure,... More

Fabulous would be an understatement. From the moment we were greeted at the airstrip with a champagne reception, we knew we were in for a very special stay. Milka, the manager, introduced us to Ibrahim, who would be our butler during our stay. Every morning, our wake up call came with coffee, tea, and cookies to the tent. One night... More

Experiance comfort and luxury at it's best in the bush. What an amazing bush retreat, fantastic staff who are attentive and professional; whilst not being aloof. food is unbeliveable (especially if you consider the lodge location) and delivers the true taste of East Africa. After out thrid trip, I still would not Hesitate to spend another week at this home... More

Our family of five stayed for three nights in February of 2012. Every aspect was spectacular, from the rooms to the views to the service. We especially loved Milka and her infectious energy, and it rubbed off to the rest of the staff, who were all wonderfully accommodating and attentive.

From the moment you land at the airstrip you know you are in for a special holiday. Everyone was very friendly, the food was great, and game drives were lots of fun. The staff makes a special effort to make you feel at home and makes sure you are having a good time at all times. The only thing "lacking"... More

Absolutely amazing, words can't describe the stay here. As a whole, the service, staff, scenery, is all one of a kind. Stayed for a week in May of 2011, great weather and tons of animals. Benson was our game driver, did an amazing job of making every game drive different and exciting. Boniface was the best staff member, very attentive... More

When we landed at Masai Mara “Airport” (a dirt landing strip in the Masai Mara) we were greeted by the Kichwa Tembo Bateleur staff. Masibo, the manager of the North Camp was there with a full bar on white linen, right off to the side of the landing strip. Hot towels and drinks on arrival, and the most welcoming group... More

My wife and i just spent 2 nights at Kichwa Tempo and went away with a great impression, we went to Singita Sabora afterwards and with a bit of tweaking to the food i think Bateleur is the best option on the Masai Mara and on ethe heels of Singita when it comes to service and personal attention.

We stayed at Bateleur for three nights for our anniversary and for the first time I have no words to describe our experience at Bateleur. It deserves all the rave reviews it has received and exceeded all my expectations. We travel quite a lot and to extraordinary places where we stay mostly in 5* resorts and we're considered rather hard... More
