Set among the forests on the edge of the Masai Mara, the inviting and luxuriously appointed tents of Bateleur Camp, with their own private butlers, reflect the style and glamour of vintage Africa.
Experience classic safari style, where wildlife adventures by day blend with elegant panache under canvas at night, at Bateleur Camp. 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 20s and 30s.
Verdant branches that open up onto an expansive panorama provide endless views of the Masai Mara as soon as you open your eyes in your vast wooden bed.
Let the untouched landscapes take you back to the style and glamour of vintage Africa. Slip into a world of hardwood floors, polished silver and sparkling crystal juxtaposed against the romance of the open Mara plains, with their abundant herds of wildlife.
When the dawn chorus of birds and monkeys begins outside, a gentle knock on the door brings a morning tray of steaming coffee. Step out of your elegant tented suited onto the private deck outside and watch the bush around you come to life. The en suite bathroom with its stone shower and warm wood furnishings prepares you for the day’s adventure. While away an hour or two in the deep leather chairs on the veranda, looking out onto the endless African plains. On a hot day, swap the shade of the forest for a dip in the sparkling lap pool.
