Bateleur Safari Camp
Timbavati Private Game Reserve, South Africa

Savour that authentic South African safari experience at the eco-friendly Bateleur Safari Camp, situated in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve, Greater Kruger Park.

Why We love it and You Will Too

  • Savour farm-to-fork bush cuisine at Bateleur Safari Camp. This eco-friendly camp boasts its own animal-proof vegetable and herb garden. It also runs on solar power, too, keeping in line with its philosophy on maintaining low environmental impact.
  • If you do enjoy a traditional sundowner, you’ll love the spot by the roaring campfire in the traditional boma which overlooks the waterhole. 
  • Learn basic tracking as you move alongside armed rangers on interactive bushwalks in prime Big 5 territory! 
  • Experience up-close encounters with even more iconic animals on 4x4 game drives every morning at sunrise and every afternoon-evening led by teams of qualified rangers. Look out for the most likely predators (cheetah, lion, leopard, hyena and wild dogs), along with elephant, buffalo, giraffe, and zebra.
  • Find your new favourite spot on the open-sided wooden deck overlooking the riverbed and its seasonal waterhole. The lounge area is just the place for game viewing or relaxing with a good book (and a crisp drink). 

Your Bateleur Safari Camp Experience

Bateleur Safari Camp is located in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. The shared unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, allows animals to meander freely into the area, increasing your chances for sightings. 

The utterly breathtaking landscape, comprising a mix of wild Acacia woodlands and sandy riverbeds, is best enjoyed out on 4x4 game drives led by expert teams of Bateleur tracker guides. Aside from the famous members of the Big Five, keep your eyes peeled for a wide variation of antelope species, and well over 500 bird species. 

If this isn’t enough to convince you to stay here, perhaps the camp itself will. Its main feature is the central lounge and dining area leading out to the wooden deck and swimming pool. Marvellously spacious and inviting, it offers plenty of comfy nooks to relax in with a good book from the library paired with something crisp and cold (or hot and melting). 

Adjacent to the main area is the traditional outdoor boma; the perfect place to congregate after a busy day getting acquainted with the bush. Here, evening dinners are prepared by the head chef, straight over the open flames. An authentic bush dining at its very best!

As an eco-conscious establishment, the entire camp and staff village is run entirely on solar power. Energy is stored in a 24-battery bank, while daily water used is derived from an underground aquifer, making it brilliantly clean and pathogen-free.
