andBeyond Bateleur Camp (Masai Mara)

andBeyond Bateleur Camp

andBeyond Bateleur Camp is a classic and intimate safari camp in a private corner of the Masai Mara; with timeless views across Africa’s great plains, intrepid adventures, wildlife magic, and authentic community interactions.

Bateleur Camp is nestled in the woodland at the foot of the magnificent Oloololo escarpment; which is on the rim of the Great Rift Valley; in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Blessed with an astounding year-round concentration of animals and the site of the Great Wildebeest Migration, the Masai Mara provides an unsurpassed wildlife experience.

Covering an area of 1 510 km²; 583 square miles; the Masai Mara is a land of breath-taking vistas, plentiful wildlife, and endless landscapes. With abundant elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion, and cheetah alongside the migratory wildebeest and zebra, the reserve is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise. Leopards are frequently seen, endangered black rhinos find shelter in dense thickets; while rafts of hippo and enormous crocodiles are found in the Mara River. The reserve is also home to over 450 bird species.

Experience classic safari style, where wildlife adventures by day blend with elegant panache under canvas at night. Commanding sweeping views over some of the premier game-viewing regions in the world, this intimate camp reflects the ambiance of the Kenyan explorers of the twenties and thirties.

Comprised of just two intimate camps of nine tented suites each and a family tent; each elegant tent, with its own private butler and housekeeper, reflects the ambiance and glamour of Kenyan explorers of old. Slip into a world of hardwood floors, polished silver and copper bathtubs juxtaposed against the romance of the open Mara plains, with their abundant herds of wildlife. Beautifully handcrafted artifacts, fine antiques, leather buttoned Chesterfield sofas, books, and crystal and candlelight adorn the comfortable sitting and dining areas.
