A wonderful setting and beautiful accommodation. Lovely food. However quite remote so we were too late for the afternoon game drive and didn't have enough time for the morning one. One night is definitely not long enough at Camp Fig Tree. More info would have been helpful.

We spent a wonderful time at camp figure. The rooms were very clean, the personal extremely helpful and thoughtful. The meals were delicious. But the best of all was the beautiful view over the Zurumountains. We experienced nothing like that on our trip in Southafrica. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Was very dissapointed with Camp Figtree. We had great difficulty gaining access to the camp. having to wait at least 10 minutes before the gate was opened. Although the staff were very nice there seemed to be no proper management. We also did not like having to go to our room at 9pm each evening. A small point about what... More

This is a lovely colonial style retreat but you should be aware that it is really remote. However, the compensation is in the stunning views. We stayed for three nights in one of the newly refurbished tents, which was very nice but on one day incredibly hot. As the whole lodge runs on a part time generator, there's no solution... More

I felt like I'd stepped back in time to a bygone era, as though I was visiting a family home in Kenya.The service, the rooms, the décor, the food, the views, I can't fault a thing. I can't wait to go back for the awesome Winter specials for our anniversary.

Camp Figtree is all the way up a mountain far far away from the city and air pollution. The accomodation is very clean and has everything you need. I would reccomend Camp Figtree with the beautiful accomodation and the friendly employees and the best Restaurant in the World to everyone =)

Camp Figtree is accessed up a bumpy 2km track after a 10km journey up a mountain pass. So it's a long way from anywhere. But the journey is rewarded by fabulous mountain views and romantic colonial style chalets. Our chalet was extremely spacious and well appointed with period furniture. We could lie in bed watching the mountains and listening to... More

The location is great & the views are absolutely stunning, although you have to drive a bumpy road for about 2 km to get there (after +/- 10 km gravel road). The rooms are beautifuly decorated (old colonial style) and are very spacious (especially the bathroom). The beds are very good. Breakfast is delicious. We even had diner around a... More
