An African Icon Reborn

Kenya’s iconic andBeyond Bateleur Camp, located in the Masai Mara, has reopened after an extensive and luxurious reinvention. 

Tucked away at the foot of the scenic Oloololo Escarpment at the rim of the Great Rift Valley, andBeyond Bateleur Camp has been completely rebuilt by the lodge’s original designers, Fox Browne Creative. The firm has refreshed and upcycled many of the twenty-year-old camp’s original artifacts, antiques, and furniture pieces to create truly refined suites – which are now twice the size – that tell the tales of African exploration to a new generation of safari-goer.

The new design retains the vintage silver, soft worn leather, antique trunks, and crystal decanters of the old camp while incorporating new design touches such as old-world maps and elegant brass fitting that contrast with white marble surfaces. Suites feature ensuite bathrooms flanked by private stone courtyards with spacious bathtubs, as well as indoor and alfresco showers, sunken daybeds on the private verandas, and luxury minibars for those crucial African sundowners.

In addition to two new swimming pools with generous decks and unbeatable views, the camp also boasts a spa that provides a selection of treatment and massage options and a well-equipped fitness center with floor to ceiling roll-back glass walls that look out onto the Mighty Mara.
