Bateleur Camp has sweeping views of the plains and has a private feel as it is nestled into the trees, in the safe haven of a fence to keep wildlife out. The lodge is decorated in old fashioned safari style with large comfortable sofas situated around roaring fires. Bateleur Camp helps to manage the area known as the Mara triangle, famous for its abundant game. Bateleur Camp provides valuable support for the anti poaching team.
