The surrounding landscape and its wildlife is influenced the underlying geology. Typically in this area that is the undulating granite Lowveld basin with large broad-leafed trees dominating the uplands, followed by Acacia woodlands, which give way to the large trees that form the riverine vegetation in the valley bottoms.  This attracts all manor of wildlife that you would except to find; the area has the Big Five game species as well as all the other important wildlife that completes the African bush with many different antelope species, predators from the small to the mighty,  500+ species of birds and much more.

Unique Selling Points of the Bateleur camps & the location

  • Both camps are located on a private 3500 hectare Timbavati property where vehicle density is so low that guests may encounter no other people for the duration of their stay. This provides a level of exclusivity during guided activities that is amongst the very best commercially available in the Greater Kruger
  • The property has such a prime location that the average sightings of wildlife and birdlife are amongst the very best commercially available in the Greater Kruger
  • The full 10 000 hectare traversing area includes other properties on the same radio frequency which greatly increases the chance of quality wildlife sightings
  • Bateleur Main Camp accommodates maximum 8 clients per night which only enhances the exclusivity already provided by its remote location on such a prime property
  • Bateleur Mobile Camp accommodates one group at a time in a separate area of the same prime property, achieving the same level of exclusivity and an even greater feeling of remoteness
  • The included activities of bushcraft, spider & scorpion module, and basic astronomy all add exceptional value that will exceed expectations
  • For an additional cost, incredible optional extras are also offered on the property, such as an interactive reptile demonstration and tribal dancing
