Named after an eye-catching eagle that hunts in Africa, the Bateleur, the andBeyond Bateleur Camp is one of those classic Masai Mara tented camps made for small groups who want to indulge in meaningful game viewing and elegant accommodation.
Choose from two groups of nine luxury tents set apart in the forests of the Mara and decorated with antiques, quality leather sofas, minibars, coffee machines, crystal and glass accessories, copper bathtubs with views and an ambience harking back to the 1920s and 30s when safaris were in.
Thankfully there are still these camps around to offer this kind of quality safari experience, as roads are tarred and wildlife camps become more accessible in Kenya. Modern accessories and facilities add to the old world theme such as an infinity swimming pool in a large deck where a private dining spot made for romance looks out over the grasslands and floodplains into the evenings.
Meet the Masai and learn about their culture as they treat you to passionate stories about growing up here and the intricacies of the Mara biodiversity. A wonderful setting on the edges of the Great Rift Valley, a wonderful safari camp created by a world class brand, AndBeyond. Look out for the iconic Bateluer Eagle soaring on thermals in the huge blue skies in search of old kills, small hares and other rodents – a black and white bird with a red bill and talons, it cannot be missed.
Appreciate your private butler and superior service at the intimate, well-designed AndBeyond Bateleur Camp in the highly regarded Masai Mara Game Reserve, a camp that retains its devotion to the real safari experience.
Bateleur is a safari destination created to immerse visitors in the wildlife viewing experience, not as a rendition of a modern resort created to entertain people. AndBeyond has the desire to conserve the landscapes, adhere to natural laws and support ecosystem and natural resource management.
Find this treasure trove beneath a lush grove of indigenous trees in central Mara, nine luxury tents stretched out on either side of the tasteful guest areas and the central infinity swimming pool. Sink into soft buttoned leather Chesterfield sofas on a vast deck with grassland views and grab a drink from the bar.
Find a wildlife book, sip wine from a crystal glass and admire the superb lighting and silverware. Gym workouts and spa treatments make your day as you while away the wonderful hours between game drives, bush walks, hot air balloon drifts and community visits. The Masai are a warm, rich culture so get to know them and their biodiversity knowledge!
Your tent is brimming with quality old-world safari antiques, a copper bathtub with views, a walk-in shower, a huge bed and deck and plenty of room for privacy and silence. Your private butler organises your private dining experience on your deck. Feel as if you just stepped out of the Out of Africa movie, part of which was filmed right here!
Tick off endangered animals when you set off early on game drives – zebras, wildebeest, kongonis, elephants, hippos, buffaloes, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, leopards, black rhinos as well as crocodiles, the Thomson’s gazelles, hyenas, and jackals. Enjoy an unforgettable bush breakfast on the banks of the Mara River or take in jaw-dropping savanna views from the Oloololo Escarpment.
Bring your children to this child-friendly destination and we will tailor make your Masai Mara experience with additional tours to Lake Victoria, Mount Kenya and the Great Rift Valley.
