Wonderful location and stunning views, situated on top of the hills in a very remote location. Extremely peaceful and fantastic service and food. It's around a 30 minute drive to the entrance of Addo but we thought it was worth it as Camp Figtree was the best place we stayed in SA. Also baby friendly with cots, high chairs etc... More

We had such a wonderful time at Camp FigTree! It could not have been a more beautiful setting with a luxurious tented suite and view into the valley. What made it extra special for us was the incredible staff, we only stayed 2 days but felt like we were part of a family by the time we left. Compliments to... More

Location, the colonial architecture ( but still only 14 yo) and above all the friendly staff made this a special stay. The limited power ( 6-10am and 5-10pm only unless very wet and dark) was a bit of a downer yet it also made us early to bed and sleep well. Great views , good size and well appointed rooms... More

So it was only one night, but what a revelation! The accomodation is a mix of luxurious tented camp and corrugated iron clad bungalows perched on the ridge of a mountain in the Zuurberg. The views are stunning and privacy secured. Certainly a destination to visit. Attentive service and great dinner. Choice at lunch was limited, possibly the only negative.

What an amazing place to get away to. Really stunning views, very helpful staff and surprisingly good food made for a superb getaway weekend. I really feel that the views they have (of rolling hills and dense bush), are of the most relaxing I have ever seen. Totally quiet with zero noises from car traffic makes it even more relaxing.

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.
