Greater Johannesburg, South Africa
Reviewed 6 January 2016

Great food, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable accommodation, incredible views and absolute serenity make this the perfect breakaway. The camp is close to the Addo Elephant Park gate for day visits (which I highly recommend). The views from the rooms are exquisite. Although dinner is not included, there are not many other options in the area. Our meal was great....

I really loved the place, but are you 1) OK with insects? 2) no electricity after 10pm 3) no air conditioning when it's VERY hot? 4) bad road to drive on? This is by no means negative review about the place. I loved every minutes of it, but I can see it's not for everyone.

Many thanks for your feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for highlighting the extra points. Camp Figtree is situated on top of the beautiful Zuurberg Mountain, along with it's remote location it is likely that guests will encounter some insects, however our housekeepers try their best to ensure they are kept out of...

We stayed with the 2 of us. We really enjoyed our stay here. The biggest asset of the stay is the fact that it is small scaled and the food, staff and room are excellent. Especially the view makes us to come back here very soon.

The hotel is in need of a proper cleaning. The seat covers in the restaurant are badly stained. The staff is sweet but in need of an efficiency lesson and to be taught how to listen to guests requests. We had the same experience at each breakfast where we made something very clear and yet they got it wrong. But...

We stayed here for two days. Excellent environment to have a relaxing stay. The view is wonderful and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The ranger (tour guide) showed us the Addo Park on a very nice way. We had the most wonderful mansion which was almost as big as our apartment in Amsterdam. The diner on Friday is...

What an incredible place! From the moment we stepped out our car we were met with warm and extremely professional hospitality! Each staff member we encountered was friendly, knowledgable and professional! So amazing to see the locals being empowered! Lunch was flavoursome and served on the wrap around verandah.

We wanted to end our South African trip at Addo NP before flying back to Sydney & we are extremely glad we experienced the remote Camp Fig Tree Lodge. Location - approximately 1 hour from Port Elizabeth & 10 mins from Addo. The drive to Camp Fig Tree is very interesting crawling up the mountain on a small gravel road,...

The staff at Camp Figtree provided the best customer service we had during our tour of South Africa. The location is very remote in an amazing setting, more like a mountain retreat, with the most fantastic views from the balcony over the mountains. Our room was a little chalet at the end of a boardwalk. A generator provided the electricity,...
