Camp Figtree

Addo Elephant National Park, South Africa

Camp Figtree

Camp Figtree is a small, intimate lodge set high in the Zuurberg mountains overlooking the Greater Addo Elephant National Park.

Camp Figtree is a private lodge set high on the stunning Zuurberg mountain range, immediately adjacent to the Greater Addo Elephant National Park. The location is marvellous, and really helps Camp Figtree stand out from other camps in the region.

Converted from a 1920s homestead and with its original corrugated iron roofing and wide verandahs still intact, Camp Figtree is a rustic, romantic retreat. The lounge and dining room are evocative of an earlier era, their large sash windows framing beautiful views.


Each of Camp Figtree's eight luxury suites is individually decorated, en-suite, and has a private verandah with a view. The lodge styles itself as a 'colonial retreat' and some may find the polished style and old-fashioned decor a little over the top; others, however, will appreciate the ambience.

In addition to the eight suites, Camp Figtree has a separate luxury tented camp located a short distance from the main homestead, which has been designed to resemble a classic canvas safari camp.


The food is consistently good at Figtree. Dinner is served in the dining room or outside around the campfire in the boma. Picnic lunches are available on request. Bush breakfasts served outdoors during the morning's game activity are a highlight.
