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 ever changing panorama of changing light and parading wildlife. Our weather could not have been better so we were able to make the most of our evenings on the deck in comfortable stuffed chairs which were perfect for enjoying an evening cocktail after a day of game tracking.
The central lobby/dining tent was casual yet luxurious, perfect for the setting, and provided a wonderful atmosphere for lunch on the grass at the edge of the forest and dinner with the warm light of kerosene lanterns. The food and service were impeccable.
