About Camp Figtree

Camp Figtree welcomes you to the era of colonial sophistication, to the beauty of the African continent and the warm friendship of the South African Eastern Cape Province. The camp has been designed around the original 1920’s traditional colonial building style, including the distinctive use of corrugated iron roofing and wide, sweeping verandas that create a backdrop of nostalgic elegance reminiscent of the early pioneers.

Remote privately owned lodge in the Eastern Cape located on top of the Zuurberg mountains, overlooking Addo Elephant National Park, with magnificent endless views. Step back in time and experience unchanged colonial sophistication

Seven separate and individually decorated Luxury and Superior Suites, with private verandas, offer privacy and Old World elegance – two have a quaint annex designed for family use.

The Main lodge offers a romantic lounge with open fireplace, dining area, wide-open verandas and breathtaking panoramic vistas from the pool and various deck areas.

Dine in our boma near a fire, under a beautiful African night sky. Victorian bath and a Zanzibar daybed set in the bush with exquisite views can be booked for your exclusive experience. Guided walks, mountain bikes, quad bikes and canoes available to explore the area.

Our qualified rangers offer daily excursions into Addo Elephant National Park which is home to the Big 5. Elephant Back Safaris are also a popular off property experience.

                      The views and tents are very nice. More like spacious 5 star rooms with a balcony and a great view of a large valley with nothing but greenery on it. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant. We are all meals here and they were also top quality. We really enjoyed the unexpected extras. They had a nice trail walk, there was an interesting snake handler with 5 live snakes (including a lively Cape Cobra), and they even washed our car! I highly recommend this place!

                      Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very grateful to have been moved from single room to family room so that we could make use of the swimming pool.
