We were scheduled to spend a couple of days at Keekorok lodge but were moved to Fig Tree at the last minute because the government requisitioned Keekorok for a meeting. We enjoyed staying in the tents, which are right on the river. We could hear the hippos frolicking at night outside our tent. The food was fine with good variety.... More

We did not stay at the camp but it looked beautiful. We took a sunrise balloon safari through the Fig Tree Camp. I was hesitant to take the flight as it was expensive ($420 pp). However, it was worth it. The views from the balloon were fantastic. It was so peaceful. Captain Ray did a great job of finding animals.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, arranged by Hamisi at Ringo safaris, which meant that our game drives were organised by the hotel and used their staff. Dominic, our masai moran and Sammy, the driver, were excellent. They were informative, knowledgable, keen and friendly - a pleasure to meet. The 4x4 was good, and other than 2 game drives, we...

Spending 4 nights at fig tree camp we can only sing the praises of the camp,its manager and its staff. Our main reason for visiting the mara was to see the animals of the area in their natural environment , this we achieved with the expertise of our fantastic driver and guide, Nicson and Sammi. We cannot praise them enough... More

Most of reviews are so good. However we did not feel that way. You can stay at Figtree if you are visiting first time to Maasai Mara and want to experience old African bush style. There is a huge beehive (about H 2m x w 1m) near the tent. River is right front of your tent and are able to... More

Words are not enough to describe the place, the people and service standards - the staff is always eager to help and make your stay memorable. The whole camp design is unique and in sync with nature with the river setting. We will always cherish the wonderful memories of our stay here

I think given the fact you are in the middle of nowhere, to have such amenities in 'tents' is just a credit to the Kenyan people and their ability to play hosts to tourists. the setting of the 'camp' is next to the Talek river and it's simply beautiful. our tent was based facing the river where the monkeys climbed...

We stayed here 30-Sep-02-Oct-2013 to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. From the moment we arrived, the staff was at the ready for my husband's "surprise" for his birthday. The hotel manager [forget his name, so sorry] worked diligently to ensure that everything was perfect and the secret was safe. The location of Fig Tree was perfect for game drives. We... More
