Set just below the spot where the famous final scene from Out of Africa was filmed, AndBeyond Bateleur Camp overlooks the endless spaces of the Masai Mara. This intimate camp reflects the ambiance of Kenyan explorers of old. The epitome of luxury, 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.
The Masai Mara Nature Reserve is home to a vast number of resident wildlife, as well as home to the annual Great Migration. The migratory wildebeest, zebra, kongoni and topi join abundant elephant, hippo, buffalo, giraffe, lion and cheetah. Leopard and serval are frequently encountered, while endangered black rhino can be found in the dense bush thickets. The Mara River is also famed for its enormous crocodiles, which lay in wait for the wildebeest and zebra during the migration, when more than 2 million wildebeest and zebra move in search of prime grazing land.
At the main lodge area, beautifully handcrafted artefacts, fine antiques, leather buttoned Chesterfield sofas, books, crystal and candlelight adorn the comfortable sitting and dining areas, transporting guests back to the heyday of classical safari. Deep, refreshing swimming pools provide cool comfort and there is also a gym for the truly energetic safari-goer. Delicious meals are served in memorable settings beneath the stars, followed by fireside port and cigars. Bush breakfasts and romantic sundowners on the edge of the Rift Valley offer an unforgettable African experience.
AndBeyond Bateleur Camp comprises of 2 camps (north and south) each with 9 tents. Each tent has its own private deck overlooking the vast game-filled plains of the Masai Mara, and a personal butler ensures that every need is catered for. In- room coffee stations and personal fridges stocked with the guests favourite beverages, ensure they feel right at home.
Step out of your tented suite 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 so in the deep leather chairs on the veranda, looking out onto the endless African plains.
The family tents (one at each camp) consist of 2 tents joined by a canvas corridor.
