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. It offers 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 breathtaking vistas, plentiful wildlife, and endless landscapes. With abundant elephants, buffalo, giraffes, lions, and cheetahs 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 hippos and enormous crocodiles are found in the Mara River. The reserve is also home to over 450 bird species.
