Our first night experience here was not the best. The washbasin leaked and the bathroom floor got soaking wet. On investigation when looking under the basin, the downpipe was not connected to the outpipe - this is most likely due to the guests prior to us causing the damage. In addition, there was only one useable power point available for... More

I have been to Fig Tree many times in the early 2000's and returned last April for a two night safari. The camp is the same in many ways, but maintains the traditional Kenyan safari appeal. The customer service and meal services were top notch. 3 course meals for lunch and dinner and the food was not only presented beautifully,... More

Fig Tree camp is magical and I can't recommend it enough. A romantic atmosphere that is simply breathtaking when you stay. On arrival you walk through paths overhung with flowers and lined with animal skulls. The tents are a short walk from the reception and each tent is spacious and fully equipped with mosquito nets, safe for valuables and clean... More

Just a great spot! Our tent was on the river so we could see and hear hippos, crocs, and hot air balloons. Staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful, food is good, and location is spectacular. Very highly recommended

Tents and chalets located in the wild nature, where you can see hippos and crocodiles in the river on the side of the lodge and baboons, vervet monkeys and eland inside. Perfect for morning safari, you are in the heart of the National Park.
