Bateleur Camp is situated on the western border of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in southwestern Kenya. Set on a private concession leased from Maasai landlords, the camp lies at the base of the Oloololo escarpment. The camp overlooks the plains of the Masai Mara and lies directly in the path of the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.
Set in a belt of dense riverine forest, Bateleur consists of two intimate camps each with just nine spacious tents with shingle roof, wooden doors and a private deck. Each tent is luxuriously furnished with wooden floors and wood-framed beds, overhead fan, twin hand basins, shower, toilet, cupboards, leather chairs and writing table.
The main guest areas, shaded by a dense forest canopy, consist of a sitting area with fireplaces and verandas with views of the endless game-filled Mara plains.
Morning and afternoon game-drives take place in open game viewing vehicles. Other activities include night game drives on the camp's concession, guided nature walks with a Maasai naturalist, Maasai community visits and lectures, and sundowners at a location offering spectacular views across the Mara. Hot air ballooning is available at an additional cost.
