Stayed here for two nights and this was our base for safari in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Staff are excellent, beds very comfortable and the location is beautiful. Food was delightful and you MUST go in the sunrise balloon trip which has you in the air for around 90 minutes (give or take 15 mins) and is followed by...

We were here three nights in January, all the staff were excellent. The tents were luxurious and the food good. We had an amazing safari from here and were lucky enough to see all the big five. We were next to the river and had a family of warthogs come right up to the tent, we could also look down...

We spent a night in the camp during our Masai Mara safari. Absolute amazing place with a very special attention to every guest. We enjoyed our stay very much. The tent we stayed was very comfortable. It is unforgettable experience to hear voices of wild animals so close. Special thanks to our driver Sami!

Nice place but badly signed so can be hard to find if you have not been there before. Good food and the rooms are very nice. The staff are friendly and are always happy to help you if you need it. The views from the tents are brilliant when there is water in the river.

I spent 3 days at the Fig Tree camp with two friends and must say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and made our stay memorable.
