The camp has a very impressive setting and the rooms are nice, although they do not offer filtered water and we had trouble with hot water. The employees are really nice, but we suspect that their ability to provide good service is compromised by being over worked. Finally the 150 rand charge for the walk around the property is a...

Camp Figtree is a beautiful set up in the mountains. A quiet location but in 15 minutes drive to the Addo Elephant Park. We stayed in the luxury suite which is absolutely spacious and has beautiful mountain views. When we arrived we discovered that unfortunately a bird must have gotten into the suite thus there were bird droppings on the... More

Potentially a great place but it needs tidying up and a much more efficient back office. Food and staff service were good. Room smelt damp.Private swimming pool water, like drinking water, brown which Is understandable but still off putting. Internet never worked. No hot water one evening. Unable to provide bill or receipt on checking out.

Loved the location, it really felt like you were getting away from it all. Lovely room, I really didn't need the extra toilet. I struggled with getting the water temperature of the shower where I wanted it...too hot or too cold. Good service although they forgot to give me my hot water in the morning. I think they encourage coffee... More

From the stunning views to the excellent service, this is must stay retreat just outside Addo Elephant Park. The staff are all so friendly and pull together to create an all-round exceptional experience for their guests. The game drive into Addo was great, and although not seeing many of the 'big game' the park has on offer, we thoroughly enjoyed... More

PROS - Friendly staff - Like no place else I've ever stayed - Colonial decor is charming - Detached units - Two others and I wanted to take a safari but their open air vehicle was in for repair. They contracted with the resort next door (5 km away) to provide us with their guide and vehicle - Reasonable rates... More

what a spectacular place. We stayed two nights and wish we'd done more. Spectacular views from our room of the surrounding valleys and mountains. The staff and service were exceptional. They were all so very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Amongst others many thanks to Mike, Alan and Simba. The hotel was a trifle 'quaint' eg so remote it relied on... More

If you are looking for a hideaway where you can just relax and do nothing, Camp figtree is the spot. Suite 6 and 7 are the most amazing suites ever, you have an amazing view from every room. There is just no comparison to other establishments, lying in the bed or taking a shower takes on new meaning at camp... More

My 10 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed our 1 night at Camp Figtree. It offered the completely relaxing experience I was hoping for. Incredible expansive views from our room and from the main house where we had dinner and breakfast on the colonial style verandah overlooking the Zuurberg mountains and valleys, only the sounds of nature and the...
