Accommodation in this camp is in 2 self-catering guest cottages - one that sleeps up to 4, the other that sleeps up to 6.
The area around Bateleur is good for viewing some of the rarer animals such as roan, sable and eland. The camp itself is fronted by a dry streambed with lots of tall trees providing shade.
During summer, a large pool forms in the sandy river, and watching animals come to drink from the concealed comfort of a hide is a popular pastime.

Directions For Drivers
If you are entering the Park for the first time, the best gate to enter through is the Phalaborwa Gate. If you are driving to the camp from within the Park, please use the 'South African National Parks Visitors Guide to the Kruger National Park' which contains detailed road maps.
From Hazyview: Take the R40 from Hazyview towards Bushbuckridge. Go through Bushbuckridge, Klaserie, Hoedspruit and Mica. Just past Mica, continue on the R40 towards Phalaborwa, and the Phalaborwa Gate will be signposted from here. Once inside the Park, follow the signs to the camp through the Park. Bateleur Bushveld Camp is 140 km away from the gate. Allow about 4 hours for the drive to the bush camp, however if you want to enjoy the game viewing possibilities give yourself more time!
Once inside the Park do not get out of your car until you reach the camp. You may see some wildlife on your way - if you do, slow down and maintain a good distance. Do not drive off-road in any circumstances.
PLEASE NOTE: The Kruger National Park prohibits the use of roads within the Park before the gates are open and once the gates are closed, therefore guests need to plan their arrival and departure times carefully. You cannot arrange to leave the Park before the gates are open, and you must ensure that you arrive at the entrance gate with sufficient time to drive through the Park to reach your destination by the time the gate closes, otherwise you may not be permitted to enter.
