After a 11km drive along a dirt track road, Camp Figtree certainly didn't disappoint. Located on the top of the Zurberg Mountains overlooking beautiful scenery, Figtree is the definition of remoteness and tranquillity. The staff were only to willing to help and the picnic walk with Alan is a memory we will never forget. After an informative walk around the... More

Camp Fig Tree is located at a very covenient distance from the outstanding NP Addo Elephant Park. Though it has a long road to get there (even themselves joke on that with some funny sings) the place pays the efforts because it is on a top of a hill. The hotel is beautifuly decorated in an English Colonial style. Rooms... More

An excellent stay at the high end of budget/low end of luxury - in other words, affordable/great value choice for beautiful site, wonderful rooms, friendly helpful staff, easy access to the Addo park. A great choice! The food is good; the local orange juice at breakfast is indeed very good and copious! The game drive is great - lots of... More

The only problem with our visit to Camp Figtree was that it was too short. It was a wonderful place to visit and relax at. The rooms were wonderful, the food exceptional ( the orange juice was the best I have ever had) and the staff very accommodating. I would highly recommend it to any travelers....especially with children

Very scenic and beautiful location. Very friendly staff and helpful with any problems that might arise. Wind was unpleasant, everything that could squeak in the luxury suite did squeak on windy nights which lead to several poor nights sleep!

Our stay at Camp Figtree this last weekend was probably the best weekend getaway destination that I've ever been to. The staff are professional and helpful and treated us like royalty. Food was out of this world. The interior design of our room was beautiful with an awesome view of the valley stretching out below us and rolling hills on... More

We really enjoyed staying at figtree. It was a bit like stepping back in time, to old colonial times. The views were most beautiful and we were made to feel very special by the staff. They took great care of us. The food in the resturant was also excellent

We found Camp Figtree by accident as we were touring 21 days on the eastern coast of Africa in June 2013. I can't describe what a special place this is for us. We were sad to leave as we felt like we had made new friends with the staff. They were very accommodating and just truly wonderful to us. The... More

My wife and I spent three nights at Camp Figtree the week of 9 June and will certainly return sometime in the future. We first visited Campfigtree on a drop-by visit to see some 10 years ago and had long wanted to return to stay. We are so glad that finally we were able to. It is beautifully located; the... More
