An amazing and luxious camp in the bush. Tent is very comfortable and peaceful. Staff is very kind and the restaurant is nice. One negative point : too many chinese group... you should arrive before them at the buffet if you want to eat something !

We had a wonderful experience at Masai Mara - thanks to Joseph (our guide / driver) of JT safaris. JT arranged for us to stay at the Fig Tree camp which was excellent - great food and lovely tented camp. The wildlife at Masai Mara was amazing - we saw lions and cheetahs with their cubs, wildebeest crossing, hyena /... More

Location of the camp in the Mara is absolutely amazing. Lots of neat things, including the foot bridge over the river, the bush breakfast and the crocodile directly across the river from our tent. I have been on a few safaris and this time saw the most wildebeests and lions I had ever seen on a safari. Food was very... More

A unique experience on the edge of the river in the heart of the Maassai Mara. The tents were comfortable, clean, and attractive. The camp is located about 10 minutes from the wildebeest migration. Animals galore are available for the viewing. The staff was very helpful, and the grounds were well cared for. A not to be missed experience.

Once-in-a-lifetime experience for our family (four teenagers, one grandparent in 80s). Tent accommodations were delightful and comfortable, especially the marble-clad bathrooms. Photo safaris were great, with friendly and knowledgeable guides and great vehicles. Food was as good as it gets considering location. Don't give up on the Masai Mara - go visit!

Stayed in the tented accommodations which was beautiful. Each tent is attached to its own goid sized en suite bathroom containing shower, toilet and sink area. The tent area was equipped with a queen and a double bed. Beautiful furniture and bed coverings. It felt like a beautiful hotel room but that the fresh air could spill into the space... More

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
