&Beyond Africa have long been known for their ability to acquire and run the best lodges in East and Southern Africa….and Bateleur is no exception. Set just to the north of the Mara National Reserve, this stunning lodge is a testament to the company’s knowledge and understanding of the Mara and what it offers. A collection of well appointed luxury tented accommodation, the lodge offers the highest standards of both food and service while being just outside the park, the options of being able to have great game but also the freedom to night drive, walk and interact with the local communities.
Situated below the location where Out of Africa’s famous final scene was filmed, this romantic and totally private camp reflects the ambience of Kenyan safaris of the 20s and 30s.
Nestled in a lush riverine forest, the tented suites epitomise classic elegance with polished wooden floors and en suite bathrooms with glass-walled showers, twin hand-basins and a separate flush w.c. Each tent has a private deck overlooking the vast game-filled plains of the Masai Mara, and a personal butler will ensure your every need is catered for.
Beautiful antiques adorn the comfortable sitting area and indoor/outdoor dining area, transporting you to the heyday of classic safaris. Your private butler will serve you delicious Pan-African cuisine in the dining area, on the veranda or in a romantic setting under the stars. Bush breakfasts and candlelit dinners offer an unforgettable experience of the African bush.
