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.

Lights out at 10pm never a problem. thoroughly recommend the game drive... More

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.

Nice idea to build a camp like this in the mountains Stunning view over the landscape Here and there the facilities could be refurbished Staff was hanging around on our balcony, although room was made up?!? Washbasin was defect (overflow within seconds...)

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
