One of the many features Bateleur offers, is a game-viewing hide that overlooks a waterhole just outside the camp. The "big and hairy" have been spotted here frequently along with fantastic birdlife.
If that's not enough, a floodlight has been fitted for nocturnal viewing ranging from civet, hyena and if you are lucky even leopard and lion.

Two dams, Silvervis and Rooibosrand are within close range of the camp and are restricted to the residents of Bateleur. Silvervis dam can offer you hippo, crocodile, bushbuck, nyala and large fever-berry trees, you will perhaps be rewarded by a glimpse of the spotted prince of cats - a leopard.

The place is good and the set up is fine, the only thing that they can improve on is the road because if its raining and you are using a small car its difficult to come in or leave because of the bridges.
Small, quite isolated bush camp! Cottages very attractive, spacious and well designed for the 'comfortable' bush holiday. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Maintenance of the camp could be better.....Few lights not working, taps dripping, and a bathroom flood from a defective cistern.... but on the whole a very good holiday!
