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.

Accommodating up to 16 people, the camp offers very spacious, comfortable safari units with a unique design. Each unit has: a thatched A-frame roof with supporting gum-pole structure and covered patio; canvas sides with large windows offering fixed mosquito screens and roll-down flaps; double wooden front doors with fixed mosquito screens and roll-down flaps for the top half; a large en-suite bathroom.

Plug points are provided for charging camera batteries. Each spacious en-suite bathroom has flush-toilet, basin and a hot-water shower.

Anything else not mentioned above


Traditional guided game drives are conducted in open safari vehicles, affording the opportunity to get closer to the animals for photographic purposes – please note that in order to preserve the environment we only deviate from the designated reserve roads when sensitive soils are not affected. During the guided game drives you can view the magnificent creatures up close from the comfort of the open safari vehicles, using spotlights after sun downers to search for the nocturnal animals.


The guided bush walks are led by qualified and armed rangers. Every walk is a book on its own, with the emphasis on information relating to all the wonders of nature, big and small. During the guided walks you are out there with the African wildlife, sharing their paths and waterholes, the daily dramas of their lives, sharing their space. The minimum age for walking activities is 12 and, although there is no maximum age, an average fitness level is required especially in the hotter summer months (October to April).


During your stay at Bateleur Safari Camp, weather permitting, you will be treated to practical information and instruction relating to bushcraft and survival skills. During the guided bush walks you will come to appreciate basic tracking & navigation skills. And back at camp the operational team will give you a bush survival skill demonstration, which includes lighting fires, making ropes & water containers, and setting snares, all using items that you find in the bush. This is not widely offered by other game lodges and it never fails to exceed guests’ expectations.
