Nice and cosy atmosphere - Kristin Enger Moroenning, Spain - 13 September 2011
We had a nice time at Bateleur Tented Safari Lodge for two days. The food and service was great and we really enjoyed our stay.
Great for a weekend breakaway and bushveld experience! Personal attention from the personnel at Bateleur. The food is very tasty.
Thank you, guys, for a great weekend. We enjoyed the stay at your lodge and had a very relaxing time, despite the blue shoulders due to the clay pigeon shooting! Thank you Frikkie, it was a great experience!
We visited the camp for 2 nights. We had a fabulous time. We went on a photo game drive during the afternoon and enjoyed it! Judas was a fabulous guide. We also went on a night drive. Viewing the stars away from any ambient light was a moment of a lifetime. It was breathtaking and oh so quiet! When we arrived back at camp we were met with a hot toddy and an enjoyable evening around the fire with "hunters" from Pretoria. The "guys" were interesting and we learned a lot about South Africa. We did visit the area that contained the "big five" but totally struck out. We attempted to track a group of elephants and while we heard them in the bush, we never saw them- but it was still amazing! The staff at Bateleur are fantastic. They provided all we needed and more! Great tents, wonderful service, and food. A holiday away from the hustle and bustle. We hope to return someday!
We chose self-catering for our stay at this beautiful Lodge and we had every conceivable amenity. We were extremely well looked after and very comfortable. The staff were efficient and helpful. The management team are friendly and caring.
We had a short stay at Bateleur - only for the Easter Weekend. We planned it months ahead of time (in December last year we booked it already) so we could spend the time there to rest with our friends from Cape Town. Sadly one member of this couple had an operation just before and passed away. We had to cancel their stay but we still went. We had a good rest and obviously love the bush thoroughly - so the game drive adds tremendously to the experience! Debby and Theo and their team did a lot to make us feel welcome and fed us almost to death! Food was great and I even got one of their recipes from them! Thanks for a memorable stay!
Ons het elke oomblik daarvan geniet. Hulle gasvryheid is uitstaande,die kos was baie lekker en ons was baie beindruk met die manier waarop Philip,Jo-Anne en Theunis met ons gedurende die dag asook die aand om die kampvuur gekuier het. Ons sal verseker weer teruggaan na Bateleur.
We had an awesome time... the people are amazing and very friendly! We'll definitely be back soon! Dion & Landi
The people are very nice, the place is beautiful and the food divine! We really enjoyed our stay, and will definitely go back. The place is absolutely beautiful!
We had the most wonderful visit to Bateleur. We enjoyed every minute from our arrival with Flippie waiting with cocktails at the gate to our last evening drive with Phillip and then the night drive with the stars almost touching us. We found the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful, the food delicious and the tented accommodation ‘luxury safari ’. We felt as though we had walked onto a film set. Congratulations to Phillip and Jo-Anne on the lovely atmosphere they’ve created. We had some great walks and drives as well. There is some wonderful bush on the property and spectacular views on Rhino land where we had our game drives. Our one suggestion is that there should always be a guide with knowledge of the bush available for the walks and drives. Highly recommended and great value.
Staff was nice and helpful. Place is exactly what you see on the web, only thing I did not have hot water in my shower and was not crazy about the food for dinner.....
I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing yet action-packed vacation in Limpopo province, at the northern reaches of South Africa. Staff at Bateleur were exceptionally helpful, friendly, and committed to their guests. The food was superior (my vegetarianism posed no problem for the inventive chefs) and my luxury tent both comfortable and clean. A tiled bathroom with super-hot water was the icing on the cake.
Very good stay! Nice people!
