A Kenya Safari Holiday taking in the Masai Mara, and wanting to see as much wildlife as possible, should consist of the leading class Bateleur Camp at Kichwa Tembo, and here is why it should be a required part of your luxury African safari.
First if you are taking a Kenya Safari Holiday, then you must want to see the Great Migration between June and October, and the Bateleur Camp neglects the sweeping Masai Mara plains, where during the migration you can witness the huge passing throngs of animals.
Bateleur camp has been deliberately created to offer the feel of the Kenya Safaris of the 20’s and 30’s and the 9 tented suites in each of the two camps definitely do that.
The suites sit in a rich forest kept moist by the river, and are classically classy with polished wood floors, ensuite restrooms with glass walled showers, twin hand basins and a different flushing toilet.
Each camping tent has a personal verandah, and most importantly it ignores the vastness of the Masai Mara, and the numerous game. Add to this a personal butler to cater to your every impulse, and it is easy to see how your Kenya safari vacation in the Masai Mara ends up being a top luxury African Safari !!
When we concern the public locations of the Camp, the sitting location is full of antiques and artifacts, and you can eat indoors or outdoors. Your butler will be only too happy if you want to consume on your verandah, or perhaps a candlelit supper under the African sky. The food by the way is quite outstanding, 3 terrific meals every day with wine and cocktails included. In addition no children to disturb your harmony!!
The excellent thing about Bateleur is the situation overlooking the plains of the Masai Mara, so the activities will be geared to some extent to the time of year, dominated by the excellent migration. You will go on morning, and afternoon game drives, always with a qualified advice in your very own open safari vehicle, so no needing to stand to see. The game drives are included in your everyday rate.
Contribute to this night drives in Kichwa Tembo’s private concession, bush walks, Masai community check outs, hot air ballooning, and you will have the safari of your life here.
To cap all of it you can go with early morning bush breakfasts, romantic sundowners looking out over the Masai Mara, and candlelit dinners overlooking the Mara river.
This safari camp also has the huge advantage of remaining in the exclusive West Mara, so at no time will your safari remain in the service of lots of other vehicles.
Bateleur Camp is a should as part of your Kenya Safari Holiday, and if it is a high-end African Safari you want, do not miss it!!
