Camp Fig Tree is a remote private lodge set on top of the stunning Zuurberg mountain range. Resting between a conservancy and the Addo Elephant National Park, the camp boasts unparalleled views.

Camp Fig Tree has been designed around its original 1920's colonial building, including the distinctive use of corrugated iron roofing and wide, sweeping verandas which provide areas for relaxed sociability. The lounge and dining room are evocative of the romantic colonial era.

The star attraction of the region is undoubtedly the Addo National Park, with more annual visitors than East Africa's Serengeti National Park. From its convenient location on the border of the park, Camp Fig Tree operates daily guided tours, using open-top Land Rovers to provide guests with some of the finest elephant viewing in the world. The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931, when only eleven elephants remained in the area. Today this finely tuned ecosystem is sanctuary to over 420 elephants, 450 Cape buffalo, black rhino, a variety of antelope species, as well as the flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. In addition to this, we can arrange Elephant Back safaris and lovely walks into the Zuurberg Mountains.

This is a fabulous lodge and ideal for a two or three night stay. There are family rooms making it ideal for those travelling with children, but it is equally romantic for those on honeymoon looking for a few days to relax and recover somewhere at the beginning of their trip.

  • It's not all about the big game. Nearby Addo Elephant National Park is also the home to the endangered flightless dung beetle.
