Bookings / Enquiries

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.

Remote privately owned lodge in the Eastern Cape located on top of the Zuurberg Mountains, overlooking Addo Elephant National Park, with magnificent endless views. Camp Figtree is set between the renowned Addo Elephant National Park to the north and east and the Riverbend conservancy to the south.

Camp Figtree`s infinity pool is magnificently positioned on the edge of a cliff where the land drops away to the valley below, offering breathtaking views onto mountain slopes.

The lodge`s A Fig Affair restaurant serves hearty, unpretentious fare focused on quality, flavour and wholesome goodness. Dishes are accompanied by a choice of fine South African wines from the lodge`s exclusive cellar collection.

A South African evening is held weekly in the boma and offers guests a taste of local cuisine and culture. A traditional dinner is served, incorporating national specialities such as umgqusho (samp and beans), isonka esibhakwe emalahleni (roast bread), ibobotie (beef mince dish) and other dishes.

Activities:

- 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.

I need to say that Mike and his team were superb! They gave us excellent treatment, food was great too. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant.

Excellent value for money. Accommodation excellent, service attentive and very friendly. Good food and food very reasonably priced, considering Camp Figtree very much has residents as a captive audience being so remote. Could not believe that wine and beverages are not charged at a premium. Definitely can and will recommend. The distance from Addo, the road, the pass, all can be seen as plus points, rather than negatives. So can the lack of electricity for most of the day, and evenings after 10. We were told that there was Wifi, given a password, which never worked in the 4 days we were there. Perhaps another benefit?
