About Us

andBeyond Bateleur Camp at Kichwa Tembo is in the north-western corner of the richest game park in Kenya. Meaning "Head of the Elephant" in KiSwahili, Kichwa Tembo is flanked by the Oloololo Escarpment and the Sabaringo River. The camp lies deep in a monkey-rich forest on the exclusive western side of the Masai Mara National Reserve, far removed from the package tourism of the eastern Mara.

Situated below the scenic location where the famous final scene of the movie Out of Africa was filmed, this romantic and totally private camp reflects the ambiance of Kenyan safaris of the ‘20s and ‘30s. The epitome of tented luxury, andBeyond Bateleur Camp comprises just two intimate camps of nine tented suites each, set among the forests on the edge of the Masai Mara. The tented suites boast an easy, classical elegance, with polished wooden floors and ensuite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor stone-walled showers and a copper bathtub. Each tent has its own deck overlooking the vast game-filled plains of the Masai Mara and a personal butler ensures that every need is catered for. Beautifully handcrafted artefacts, fine antiques, leather buttoned Chesterfield sofas, books, crystal and candlelight adorn the comfortable sitting and dining areas, transporting guests back to the heyday of classical safari.

Deep, refreshing swimming pools provide cool comfort. Delicious meals are served in memorable setting beneath the stars, followed by fireside port and cigars. Bush breakfasts and romantic sundowners on the edge of the Rift Valley offer an unforgettable African experience.

Best of the Best

When your safari tent boasts private butler service, ceiling fans and a spacious bathroom en suite, you know you've arrived at a very special and romantic place. In fact, andBeyond Bateleur Camp is close to the spot where the famous final scene of Out of Africa was filmed. Reflecting the ambience of 1920s and 1930s Kenyan safaris, this forest setting calls as much for relaxation as for exploration. In the morning and in the late afternoon, head out in open 4x4 safari vehicles, and then, in your downtime, take a dip in the deep lap pool or indulge in a Pan-African gourmet meal on the veranda.

Hotel Tip

For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, book a hot-air balloon ride over the Masai Mara at dawn. Witness the great wildebeest migration river crossings, typically between July and October.
