Fig Tree Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 April 2017 via mobile

We had a Fantastic stay at Fig Tree. We were very lucky with the weather and were amongst some of the only guests at the camp. The staff and service were exceptional, with hippos and crocodiles in the river just outside our tent. The tent was beautiful and really well equipped with private bathroom and hot water and wifi early in the morning and night time. You could choose to take an early morning game drive and have a packed breakfast / lunch or enjoy the three course meals that were served each lunch and dinner. The staff could not have more accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. It was safe and professional and we loved our time there. 2 nights were perfect to explore the Maasai and see so many incredible animals in their natural environment. Our driver and guide, Nixon and Hiram, made our tours personalised to what we wanted and went above and beyond and gave such an insight into the wildlife and the Maasai culture. Thank you so much!

We stayed for 3 days at the Fig Tree camp and it was one of the best. Our tents were located right outside the river with lot of hippos around. Being a vegetarian we were worried about our food options, but there were plenty of choices and the food was excellent. We requested the chef to prepare some local Kenyan cuisine and he prepared some excellent food. I would definitely recommend the stay here and it's super close to the Masai Mara park too..

The Fig Tree Camp does it right. We stayed 2 nights (March 9-10, 2017). The accommodations were comfortable. Slept well. The service staff was very professional, friendly, and helpful. We were in a Tent, which is covered by a sheltered roof and an affixed bathroom/shower. The bed was comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch over looking the river, watching Weaver birds and Hippos. The food and service was very good. The Fig Tree Camp is an excellent place to serve as a base for safari in the Masai Mara National Reserve. I would gladly stay again at the Fig Tree Camp if the future holds another trip to the Masai Mara. Internet is available in the lobby/reception area. Very enjoyable stay.

Stayed for 2 nights at the Fig Tree Camp during our Masai Maara trip. The rooms were nice and comfortable. The internet connection was very weak and also didnt work in the rooms. The food was alright but it didnt matter as we had a great time in the game reserve - we did see the big 4 (missed out the Black rhinoceros).
