Cape Town Central, South Africa1 contribution
We had the most amazing stay at Bateleur. The setting is beautiful abutting the river with amazing trees. The tented rooms were lovely and peaceful. Sofia our host and all her staff were really warm and hospitable, the food was delicious and our walking tour with Dylan and Lucky was truly memorable.

Stunning few days in paradise. Tents were comfortable and food was excellent. Staff also were super efficient and friendly. Walking safaris with Vuya Walking Safaris were incredible, with great sightings. Would highly recommend Bateleur and Vuya Walking Safaris.

We enjoyed a wonderful few days at Bateleur, with some great sightings, and good home-style fare from the kitchen. We were blessed to be led on daily walking trails by a very competent guide (Dylan from Vuya Walking Safaris) and an outstanding local tracker (Lucky). Very comfortable accommodation. Hope to get back soon.

Outstanding game viewing with the best Ranger / Tracker partnership I’ve ever experienced. Thank you Jamie and Temba! The whole Bateleur team are great, with special compliments to Chef Kalmay! Thank goodness the weather was cool as we would’ve struggled in the low veld summer heat without aircon. It was really a perfect bush break.

Thank you for your feedback from your time with us, we appreciate it. Fantastic to hear that all your needs were catered to in every way and that your safari experience was like no other. We look forward to seeing your return in the near future, maybe a winter visit is in order for the next trip > a completely different experience to the current surrounding summer bush.
