Overview

Escape to the tranquility of the Waterberg, with 3,000 hectares to explore. Indulge in the beauty of nature with deep gorges and clear rock pools.
Unique Fauna & Flora abound in this bird-watchers and wildlife paradise. Bateleur is famous for its SAHTOA accredited Stamvrug Hiking Trails, consisting of seven different circular- and day trails, laid out amongst the Waterberg Kloofs and Escarpments.
Stay in self-catering secluded farmhouses, log cabins, or bush camps.
Enjoy hiking, game viewing, bird-watching (Kloof Bird Hide), mountain biking, swimming, fishing (catch and release).


After reporting to reception, you are on your own at Bateleur. Once settled at the accommodation of your choice, you are requested to restrict driving to an absolute minimum. Bateleur is best explored on foot.
You have the freedom to explore the gorges and rocky krantzes of the Waterberg, or go swimming in the clear bilharzia-free rock pools.


Note that Bateleur's main focus is on our visitors enjoyment of the natural environment. We cater for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts like hikers, mountain bikers, birders and those who seek refuge from city life in seclusion and tranquillity. Limited 4 x 4 and horse riding can be arranged. Our accommodation, mainly old farm houses with old furniture, is comfortable and clean, but not luxurious.

Die fokus van Bateleur is hoofsaaklik op die gaste wat die natuurskoon geniet, Ons bied 'n diens aan natuurliefhebbers en buitelug-entoesiaste soos: bergfietsryers, voetslaners, voëlkykers en diegene wat bloot wil wegbreek van die stad af in die rustigheid en afsondering van die natuur. Beperkte 4 x 4 en pedry kan gereel word. Ons akkommodasie, hoofsaaklik ou plaashuise met ou meubels is gemaklik en skoon, maar nie luuks nie

Guest Comments

Everything was excellent mountain hiking swimming and accomodation...looking foward for another stay..the cleaning lady has this traditional home hospitality and she made everyone feel at home.louise the hostess shes just a friendly person, we had a problem with our transport to pick us up and had to check out later than expected she told us to relax and feel at home until our taxi comes...i give them a total rate

Zero communication, terrible roads. They make you drive all the way to reception on a terrible road only to drive all the way back to your accommodation. The keys are left in the unit so there is no need to drive to reception..if you dont have a suv or bakkie with proper clearance, dont even think of going there. They also force you to pay the full amount before even going there, as they will not give you the pin for the main gate until fully paid....
