Directions to Bateleur Bushveld Camp
Bateleur Bushveld Camp, which borrows its name from the spectacular bird of prey, offers an equally beautiful accommodation option approximately 40 kilometres south west of Shingwedzi. Situated in the northern Mopane / Woodland savannah of the park, the surrounding bushveld is truly beautiful and unique. Bateuleur Camp also has exclusive access to these beautiful dams, and are the perfect escape for guests when the main roads get congested during peak season.
Bateleur also has a fantastic hide overlooking a waterhole just outside the camp, which offers tranquil and thrilling sightings of various wild and birdlife. All of the above combines to make this a truly special camp within the Kruger Park.
As the oldest and smallest of the Kruger Park's bushveld camps, Bateleur holds a special place in the hearts of the early adopters of this unique Kruger Park accommodation option, who are regularly rewarded with sightings of a selection of general game
Common in the area: Wildebeest, Zebra and buffalo. At the same time, birdlife abounds in the region, particularly around the nearby dams of Rooibosrandt and Silvervis, with sightings of Yellowbilled Storks, African Fish Eagles, Spoonbills and Knobbilled Duck common at these locations.
