I will start from the beginning......... We arranged the safari from the UK after seeing the Mada website and it looked beautiful. We met our driver and Edna who organised the safari at their hotel in Nairobi, the Oakwood Hotel if memory serves me right. The driver was really nice but Edna was more concerned about money and it had... More

Mixed reviews about Fig Tree but we thought it was the best part of our trip to Kenya. Booked through JT Safari. Tents were fab - we did not expect the 4 poster beds and a bathroom - it is a Safari! when the water was on it was roasting and it was timed around your safari trips - perfect!... More

My husband and I have just returned from the most amazing holiday ever. We stayed at Fig Tree Camp, and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. The staff are very friendly, food was buffet with lots of choice. Rooms and public areas were spotlessly clean. Sitting outside our tent overlooking the Talek River was the most peaceful time I have... More

The first camp we visited during our safari and a really great one. Luxurious tents located beautifully next to the river. We spotted a lot of wildlife just sitting in front of our tent including baboons, warthog, impala, crocodile, a kingfisher and many other birds. Game around this camp was excellent during our stay. Food is buffet style and good,... More

Having read the previous reviews and The Fig Tree broucher, we decided to book and stay there for two nights. I would have to agree that the staff were very friendly and the safari and guide were again fantastic. But that's where it stops. Elephants and hippos drinking from the river or waterhole near the tents ( I think not)... More

We had four nights at Fig Tree Camp as part of a ten day safari to Kenya - primarily to see the migration. The hotel is fairly well located for where the herds were at the time, though the river level was very low so there was very little wildlife on the river margins. We stayed in a tent overlooking...

All in all excellent. I would absolutely recommend this camp. SERVICE The service in the restaurant was amazing. Everybody was so friendly and asked us if the food was good, how our day had been, what animals we had seen etc. and they made a lot of fun with us. ROOMS The room was about average I think. Two beds... More

We have just returned from spending 2 nights / 3 days here and it was unbelievably fantastic. We booked it with Victor at Sunset Tours after our original safari company failed to show up to meet us. I posted a thread on the story of this on the Mombasa forum so I won’t go into it here. Suffice to say,... More

We left Turtle Bay Beach Club in Watamu at 7.45am and were driven to Malindi Airport for our 8.20am flight to The Masai Mara. We boarded our 13 Seater Plane for our 2 hour flight. During the flight we saw some beautiful views and flew past Mount Kilimanjaro with its Snow covered peaks. On arrival we were picked up by... More
