"The searching spirit"

Joy Adamson (Author and conservationist)

Think safari and you have to think Kenya and Tanzania. Famous for their fantastic game viewing and diverse habitats, both are guaranteed to surprise and delight. There is always something new to fire your imagination and alert your senses in the great wilderness that covers much of East Africa.

Experience the freedom of safari life and the thrill and authenticity of sleeping under canvas. Escape the crowds and enjoy a camp, fully equipped to ensure you have a luxurious and comfortable stay.

Tented safaris are combined with stays at our hand-picked lodges.

Bateleur safaris are custom-designed and tailored for each traveller. Although there are favourite destinations which suit this style of safari, there are many options for you to choose from.

"To witness that calm rhythm of life revives our worn souls and recaptures a feeling of belonging to the natural world. No one can return from the Serengeti unchanged, for tawny lions will forever prowl our memory and great herds throng our imagination."

George Schaller (American conservationist and author)

From the big five to the little five, your spotting list will be longer than you could imagine.

"I know of no pleasure deeper than that which comes from contemplating the natural world and trying to understand it."

David Attenborough

Bateleur will create a safari just for you, packed full of activities or alternatively enjoy a relaxed and tranquil trip in paradise!

Game viewing is the number one recommendation; most people never tire of it!

In a few conservancies, you can take an exhilarating walk in the wild or ride with camels. Led by guides who are well versed at tracking and approaching game, this offers a chance to connect with nature in its purest form.

Cultural tours are always available. Should you wish to connect with the communities in the areas where you are on safari, this can easily be arranged.
