Set among forests on the very edge of the Masai Mara, the intimate Bateleur Camp reflects the ambiance of Kenyan explorers of old. Each elegant tent, with its own private butler, replicates 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.
Set just below the spot where the famous final scene from Out of Africa was filmed, &Beyond Bateleur Camp overlooks the endless spaces of the Masai Mara, providing guests with sweeping views of this quintessential African landscape. Nestled deep in a belt of dense riverine forest, each tent is secluded by lush green vegetation, carving out a private, leafy enclave for every guest.
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 veranda outside and watch the bush around you come to life. The ensuite 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.
Guest areas bring in the vast open spaces, adding a touch of vintage safari elegance. Intriguing antiques, hand-crafted artefacts and keepsakes of bygone times mingle with cushy sofas and polished leather chairs. Shiny brass compasses, leather trunks and framed maps bring a poignant reminder of old world travellers on a similar journey, while bookshelves of bound tomes entertain and inform. The warm glow of torches and candles welcomes you home from your evening drive. Fine china, crystal and silver sparkle in the torchlight as the aromas of delicious meals waft on the breeze.
Experience classic safari style, where wildlife adventures by day blend with elegant panache under canvas at night.
True African hospitality lies at the core of &Beyond's lodges and camps throughout the continent.
