Bateleur Camp

A distinguished camp, Bateleur Camp at Kichwa Tembo is situated in the world famous, game frequented plains of the Masai Mara in South Western Kenya. With its superb tented suites, each furnished with leather seating, glass-walled showers and shining wooden floors, it is internationally recognized as a romantic plush escape in the heart of the Kenyan wilderness. One can dine outdoors, exclusively in the wild, while a personal butler serves sumptuous elegant cuisine. Sundowners and fine wines are served at dusk. Activities range from a cool dip in the lap pool to simply observing the steady stream of wildlife passing by.  The décor and ambience of Bateleur Camp recreates the adventurous decadence of a bygone era. The camp overlooks the plains of the Masai Mara and lies directly in the path of what is considered the greatest spectacle in the animal kingdom.
