Encircled by the lush folds of the Zuurberg Mountains, Camp Figtree commands a remarkable location perched high on a crest, with 270 degree views of the mountains and gorges.
Camp Figtree’s nine suites, four superior – set slightly back with private verandas opening onto the indigenous garden, and three luxury – expansive and built on stilts with jaw dropping views, offer exclusivity, privacy, and the gracious style of Old World elegance and sophistication. Deeply polished wooden floors, four poster beds with mosquito nets, sash windows with elegant drapes, Persian carpets and orchids and en-suite bathrooms are just some of the features.
True to its colonial farm roots the main lodge incorporates corrugated iron roofs and wide sweeping terraces from which to soak up the magnificent views. With authenticity the key, the lodge captures the historic era beautifully from the literature in the bookshelves to period photographs on the wall. There is The Fig Affair Restaurant, a boma (thatched open-air lounge with a central fireplace), comfortable seating areas and an infinity pool on the lip of the mountain offering amazing uninterrupted views.
Open All Year
Activities are conducted in the adjacent Addo Elephant Park with the lodge’s resident guide (at extra cost) and open vehicle drives, walks and sundowners are offered on the lodge estate.
