Type: Accommodation – Lodge
Category: Eco & Sustainable

Motivation for award: At Bateleur, we love to expose the magic of a real African safari to our guests and always keep our ecological footprint top-of-mind. The camp is completely off the grid, and every effort is made to try and keep operations as green as possible ie. no plastic water bottles are stocked, we grow our own veggies and use eco-friendly cleaning products. In addition, a degree of flexbility to the daily schedule encourages guests to accept the magic that each day brings, without any expectation. We remind guests how the concepts of “simple and uncomplicated” are so needed in people’s lives right now and we love it when guests leave as friends – and keep coming back each year!

Region: Limpopo / Hoedspruit

Looks great. Must try it on our way to or from our regular bush trip to the Timbavati. Really like the “simple” and “eco-friendly” principles adopted.

Such a special place!

Michele Boyce – 02.03.2022
We went to Bateleur in 2019 and had a trip of a lifetime!!! Went on to other locations after in our trip and absolutely none stood up to the amazing standard set at Bateleur. The facilities are gorgeous but what really stands out is the education we left with !! Thank you to all the Bateleur staff and we can’t wait to come back.

Sandy Smith – 02.03.2022
The best experience I’ve ever had! The knowledge and professionalism of all, through to the food and accommodation are amazing!

Anni Lehr – 02.03.2022
Bateleur is the most ‘honest’ Bush Camp we have visited – their “NO PLASTICS” Policy certainly resonates with Environmentally Conscious people who are trying to keep their Carbon Footprint to a minimum

Basimane Allen Monakaladi – 02.03.2022
Nature is always best and the no plastic policy at Bateleur adds to that..

Tanja – 01.03.2022

Chris Moscrop – 01.03.2022
We went to Bateleur as part of a once in a lifetime trip. It was so good we are going back later this year. No need to say anymore.

Jurgen du Plessis – 01.03.2022
I have had the privelege of visiting Bateleur on numerous ocassions and it has never failed to impress. They go out of their way to provide a full “bush experience” and I believe they have found that perfect balance between luxury and authenticity.

Mark Measeck – 01.03.2022
Excellent camp, great people running it, would recommend to anyone
