Bateleur Camp

Bateleur Camp at Kichwa Tembo is situated on the border of the Masai Mara National Reserve in southwestern Kenya. Set on a private concession leased from Masai landlords, the camp lies at the base of the Oloololo escarpment and is fringed by riverine forest just below the spot where “Out of Africa’s” most famous scene was shot. The camp faces out onto the plains of the Masai Mara and lies directly in the path of what is considered to be the greatest spectacle in the animal kingdom, the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti National Park of Tanzania. This romantic and totally private camp reflects the ambience of Kenyan safaris of the 20’s and 30’s. Two intimate camps of nine spacious tents each, with polished wooden floors and en suite bathrooms with glass-walled showers. Each tent has its own deck overlooking the vast game- filled plains of the Masai Mara, and a personal butler will ensure every need is catered for. Each tent is luxuriously furnished with twin beds that may be converted to double beds, ceiling fan, twin hand basins, shower, private w.c, cupboards, leather chairs, hairdryer, safe, writing table and subtle lighting. Beautiful antiques adorn the comfortable sitting and dining areas and the camps also feature refreshing lap pools. Delicious Pan African meals are often served under the stars. Activites include morning and afternoon game drives in open 4 x 4 safari vehicles, Masai community visits and lectures, night drives on the lodge’s private concession and guided nature walks with a Masai naturalist. Hot air ballooning is an optional excursion at additional cost.
