Bateleur Bushveld Camp, Kruger National Park

The hide at Bateleur Bushveld Camp, Kruger National ParkThis delightful little rest camp is situated on the banks of the Mashokwe spruit in the northern section of the Kruger National Park. This little gem in the Mopanveld region of the park offers, peace, tranquility and an intimate experience with the African bush. There is no better place in Africa to get closer to nature than in the vast, isolated Mopane plains of the Kruger National Park.

Named after the majestic Bataleur eagle, common throughout this region, the camp is the oldest and smallest of the park’s bushveld camps. The camp offers fantastic game viewing, with a viewing hide at the waterhole next to the camp. The Rooibosrand and Silwervis dams, also offering fantastic game viewing (particularly for hippo and blue wildebeest), are close by and are restricted to the residents of the camp. This ensures that you’ll always be able to enjoy a peaceful, game-filled drive from this gorgeous little gem in the magnificent Kruger bush. Bookings and info
