We are welcomed by singing staff and greeted with a wet washcloth and juice.
The open-air lodge is wonderfully decorated, peaceful, and looks out onto the bush where animals roam. We are escorted on a pathway through heavy foliage to our “tent,” which is perfectly appointed and extremely well-designed for comfort and usage. The floor and roof are permanent structures, but the walls are canvas with screened windows and a large zipped, screen opening to a terrace and view. The room has double sinks and double closets. The African motif throughout Bateleur is delightful and tasteful. We enjoyed special surprises. Service is excellent (both friendly and helpful), and the game drives excellent. We enjoyed the food, but I suggest you avoid eating lettuce. Wifi is confined to the reception areas.
