Bateleur Safari Camp is ideal for couples, singles and small groups who are looking for a Timbavati safari that simultaneously exceeds expectations and offers an up-close experience of the true African bush and wildlife. Bateleur is totally eco-friendly – full details regarding our ‘green’ policy are available on request.

The feature of the camp’s central area is the covered, open-sided wooden deck that houses the lounge and dining areas and overlooks the riverbed and its seasonal waterhole.  The comfortable lounge area is an ideal place for idle game viewing or relaxing with a good book and a cool drink between guided activities.  Books are available from the library and drinks can be purchased from the bar.  At meal times the dining area is the perfect location for enjoying sumptuous meals whilst absorbing the sights and sounds of the African bush.  The wooden deck extends past the adjacent chemical-free swimming pool which allows guests to cool off in the heat of the day without missing the wildlife and birdlife that frequent the waterhole.

The central area is completed by a tastefully finished, low-walled boma area open to the stars with chairs set up around a central fireplace.  This is an ideal place to relax around the fire and share stories of the day’s activities under a big African sky.  Adjacent is the camp’s braai/barbeque area where food is often prepared by the chef on the open fire.

When designing and building Bateleur Safari Camp, it was a priority to make as small a footprint as possible.  Tented walls were chosen over concrete structures, allowing guests inside the units a closer interaction with the outdoors.  No trees were removed during the building process, allowing the camp to unobtrusively blend into the surrounds.  Literally hundreds of trees have subsequently been planted in and around the camp.

Regular 4-legged visitors that can be seen walking within the camp perimeter during the day include Nyalas, warthogs and bushbuck.  Elephants, buffalo and rhino can often be seen walking through the river bed in front of the camp.  And at night, anything shorter than an adult elephant can, and often does, walk through the camp under the cover of darkness.
