Bateleur Safari Camp

Bateleur Safari Camp is located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, a world renowned wildlife destination in South Africa that sits adjacent to the Kruger National Park. There are no fences between the Timbavati and the Kruger, allowing animals to roam freely between the two parks. This prime wilderness area is home to the Big Five as well as a large diversity of animal and bird species, providing an exceptional safari experience. Guests have the opportunity to explore the Timbavati by 4x4 or on foot, and very rarely will they be disturbed by other vehicles during their stay!

Accommodating up to 16 guests, Bateleur Safari Camp is an eco-friendly camp ideal for those looking for a more authentic, under canvas experience in South Africa. The camp's central lounge and dining area feaures an open-sided wooden deck that overlooks the riverbed, where elephants, buffalo and giraffe can often be seen.

  • Trip of a lifetime

    We saw the “Big 5” and most of the rest of the animals in the area, but what made this a special safari was the people working at Bateleur Safari Camp. Everyone was not only great at their job they all seemed to really be invested in what they were doing as a life style. review
