Bateleur’s traversing area extends over 10 000 hectares of the Timbavati Game Reserve and guided game drives depart twice daily to make the most of it. The departures are perfectly timed in the early morning and late afternoon, when it is a lot cooler. These are the times when the wildlife is more active, and the chances of seeing them are at their highest.
Aside from game drives at Bateleur Safari Camp, extended guided bush walks are also on offer, led by qualified rangers and trackers. Those who take to the guided bush walks can do as much walking as they would like. You may be going on 3 to 4 hour guided walks instead of a guided game drive. The minimum age for walking activities is 12 years old.
Weather permitting, you can also try a crash course in bushcraft and survival skills. Embark on a practical bush walk to learn basic tracking and navigation skills, as well as survival skills. Learn about lighting fires, making ropes and water containers, and setting snares. A real African safari adventure!
Regular four-legged visitors often meander into camp at Bateleur. From nyalas, warthogs and bushbuck, to elephants, buffalo and rhino. You don’t have to venture very far from camp to catch a glimpse of them. Keep an eye on the river bed in front of the camp, and an ear out at night.
