Bateleur Bushveld Camp - Kruger Park being the oldest and the smallest of the bushveld camps offers unique atmosphere and superb game viewing.
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.
Enjoy your sundowners and braai while the Pearlspotted and Scops owls clear their throats for an evening of melodious calls interrupted by lion’s roars.
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 bird-life is also spectacular all year round.
