Bateleur Safari Camp Setting

Bateleur Safari Camp is located within the Timbavati – a renowned private reserve that forms part of the Greater Kruger. There are no fences between the Timbavati and the Kruger National Park, 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!

The encounters this area affords with wildlife are so remarkable that they are nearly beyond adequate description. It secures a prominent spot among Africa's premier wildlife destinations. Exploring the Greater Kruger Park through safaris opens doors to an extraordinary array of opulent game lodges, immersive safaris, engaging activities, and guided tours, all converging to craft an extraordinarily unforgettable wildlife experience.

Frequently asked questions


  • 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
