The only downside is that this place is rather far away from anything else (restaurants etc). We would recommend at least a 2 night stay to make it worth the trip. The road to the hotel is unpaved with the last 3km very unpaved. We did not need a 4x4 our tiny Toyota Etios sufficed, but a larger car would... More

This was the first place we stayed during a four week trip to S. Africa. Great location, if you like remote, and as it is at the top of a ridge good views in several directions. Several miles of unmade road to get there, with the last bit extremely rough. Glad we had an SUV. Loved the sign "Nearly there!"... More

Every aspect of service was top drawer. We only stayed one night after visiting Addo and I wish we had booked for 2 nights. It would have been ideal to spend some time at Camp Figtree relaxing. The views are breathtaking. It is a little more remote than I had realised (which made it even better than expected) but even... More

After 2 weeks of driving though the garden route (Cape Town, Hermanus, Oudtshoorn, Wilderness & Port Elizabeth) me & my wife finished at Camp Figtree. Having seen so much wonder before I couldn't believe it could be surpassed but, it was! Yes, there are (minor) flaws but, they are at best petty. So, what if you have to wait 10... More

We had a great stay at the top of a mountain in Ador. The views are breathtaking! It was very hot - no AC, but thats ok. We had the family cottage with our own pool. Took some guts to cool of in there - but we have three handy teenager girls they cleaned the pool first thing. The interrior... More

We arrived at Camp Figtree on a blisteringly hot day at noon. Well, we arrived at the locked gate. The electrics for it were completely dead. No one was contactable to open it and our phones had no coverage. We waited it out in the car for ages before I finally set off on foot to get us rescued. There... More

Great food, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable accommodation, incredible views and absolute serenity make this the perfect breakaway. The camp is close to the Addo Elephant Park gate for day visits (which I highly recommend). The views from the rooms are exquisite. Although dinner is not included, there are not many other options in the area. Our meal was great.... More

I really loved the place, but are you 1) OK with insects? 2) no electricity after 10pm 3) no air conditioning when it's VERY hot? 4) bad road to drive on? This is by no means negative review about the place. I loved every minutes of it, but I can see it's not for everyone.
