Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
An ode to the explorers of the 1920s, &Beyond’s Bateleur Camp creates an ambience of old-world luxury on the edge of the Masai Mara National Reserve. Each tent is exquisitely adorned, with hardwood floors, polished silver, and twinkling crystal.
The 18 tented suites are split across two separate camps, to keep that small camp ambience. Both camps feature a swimming pool and spacious lounge area, both camps feature a swimming pool and spacious lounge area with a gin bar. These spacious tents feature large glass doors opening out onto the private veranda, providing stunning views over the Mara plains. Each tent comes with a private butler and butler hatch for a private morning tea or coffee. The quality of food and drink is of &Beyond’s typically exceptional standards. This is a luxurious home on the grasslands and the remote location helps maintain an intimacy, even though you’re in the national reserve. We find this a rare treat that always has us wanting to return.
Bateleur Camp is discretely fenced as the surrounding area is alive with big cats and tens of thousands of wild animals. Safari is so easy here; within moments of leaving camp you’re likely to encounter very dramatic Masai Mara scenes and with only two couples per vehicle this is a private safari experience. Uniquely for the National Reserve, you’re able to go on night-time drives and walking safaris. A hot air balloon launch site is also close by.
Whether it’s your first time to Africa or you’re returning for the tenth time, Bateleur Camp has a classic style that ensures you get the most out of the Masai Mara, while still being pampered by luxury.
This camp is well suited to families, accepting children of all ages although children below 5 can’t participate in game drives. Families are accommodated in either a triple room or family tent with two adjoining bedrooms, these tents are set away from the others for added privacy. Bateleur Camp also offers the Wildchild programme where children partake in interactive activities cultural experiences.
