This was our first stay at an &Beyond Camp - highly recommended by our travel planner, Linda Friedman (of Custom Safaris in Washington, DC) – and I can guarantee that we will go out of our way to create a reason to stay at others! From our initial greeting at the airstrip; to Milka’s unbelievable high energy and positive attitude, her warmth in making us feel so “at home” while engaging in conversation on any number of subjects and her exuding pride in the company’s give back philosophy and involvement in the community; to Chef Meshak’s creative and beautiful creations (and catering to my wife’s crazy food allergies); to Little Joseph’s daily welcoming wake-up call; to Francis’ lively conversation and gratitude each night as he walked us back to our tent; to Pricillah’s constant concern that my wife wasn’t getting enough to eat…..on & on it goes. This company knows how to do it right! Pampering is an understatement. Quality of accommodations fantastic! Service out of this world! Food to die for! Intimate but comfortable (non-stuffy atmosphere). Phenomenal wildlife viewing. What more could you ask for? And, the company has an unbelievably successful practice of sustainability, giving back and immersing in the local communities - real social responsibility. Can't say enough - have stayed in many of the best hotels in the world - but our experience at Bateleur Camp was head and shoulders better than any others. Expensive - but worth it.
- 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
