My husband and I got to spend one night here after a week long mission trip. I was extremely ill when we arrived, likely from a parasite I picked up. But thankfully, the Lord helped me get better overnight so I could enjoy our safari the next day. The lodge was like something out of a movie or an adventurer's... More

We spent three nights there at the end of May 2015. Food terrible, with not enough provided for guests, of which there were not very many. Flies in the salad dressings, and stuck to the dessert cakes and who knows where else they were. Cockroaches walking across the dining room floor. The pool too dirty to swim in and the... More

a very nice hotel, the ambiente was great, walking to your own little house-tent: fantastic!!! We loved it a lot!!!! But unfortunately like most of the hotels in Kenya, also this one had only few guests....The problem is due to corruption of the governement who pockets in everything they can.

I went here with my family. It was our first time so we decided to go in a camp-setting style for the experience. The room is literally a tent and it was my first time staying at a place like that so I was very excited. The staff were all very friendly and I really enjoyed my stay. On the... More

Our Road Scholar trip to Kenya and Tanzania was wonderful. We experienced Africa's wildlife and culture first hand. Pictures are amazing but nothing beats being there in person. The Fig Tree camp was beautiful and hidden in the Reserve. Our trip couldn't have been better.

We came to Fig Tree just after Christmas and I would say it is a beautiful place. Just as the photos in the internet, that's how the place is in real life. The staff members were very good and made us feel at home. Many thanks to the manager Mr. Karori, Asst. Manager Mr. Tom, the staff who we interacted... More

Lovely camp and very friendly and efficient staff. Lovely safari and the guides are really good. They made sure we saw all the big 5 before we left. Was difficult to see the leopards but they did their best to look for them. Saw all the big 5. Excellent camp. Good is good. Lovely ambience.
