Bateleur Bush Camp - Kruger Park - SANParks

Bateleur Bush Camp is a delightful camp situated on the banks of the Mashokwe Spruit approximately 40km south west of Shingwedzi in the beautiful northern Mopane/Woodland savannah of the Kruger National Park. One of the many features Bateleur offers is a game-viewing hide that overlooks a waterhole just outside the camp. The "big and hairy" have been spotted here frequently along with fantastic birdlife. If that's not enough, a floodlight has been fitted for nocturnal viewing ranging from civet, hyena and if you are lucky even leopard and lion. Enjoy your sundowners and braai while the Pearlspotted and Scops owls clear their throats for an evening of melodious calls interrupted by lion's roars.

Two dams, Silvervis and Rooibosrand, are within close range of the camp and are restricted to the residents of Bateleur. Silvervis Dam can offer you hippo, crocodile, bushbuck, nyala and large fever-berry trees, you will perhaps be rewarded by a glimpse of the spotted prince of cats - a leopard. The birdlife is also spectacular all year round.

Pets are not permitted in a National Park. Firearms must be declared at the entrance gate and sealed. The seal will be broken upon departure. Open vehicles must obtain the necessary permit.
