Spending 4 nights at fig tree camp we can only sing the praises of the camp,its manager and its staff. Our main reason for visiting the mara was to see the animals of the area in their natural environment , this we achieved with the expertise of our fantastic driver and guide, Nicson and Sammi. We cannot praise them enough and have returned home with memories that will last for ever. The camp accommodation is perfect, nestling in the bush, with a varied menu and a our attentive waiter Nelson who was always cheerful and happy to hear how our day had gone! All the staff whether behind the bar or on security were friendly and efficient and the whole fig tree experience was something we shall never forget, thank you!!!

Most of reviews are so good. However we did not feel that way. You can stay at Figtree if you are visiting first time to Maasai Mara and want to experience old African bush style. There is a huge beehive (about H 2m x w 1m) near the tent. River is right front of your tent and are able to see hippos. You can hear the sound of river during the night. We found meals were poor. Vegetables were not fresh. Staff had to remove after some guests complained. Many monkeys were entering into the dining restaurant and staff were busy chasing away instead of giving service to the guests.

Words are not enough to describe the place, the people and service standards - the staff is always eager to help and make your stay memorable. The whole camp design is unique and in sync with nature with the river setting. We will always cherish the wonderful memories of our stay here

Stayed there during the first week of December 2013 and we had a blast. The whole staff ranging from front desk, porters, waiters, guards, bartenders were awesome. Special mention to Mustafa our waiter, This guy is the epitom of great service and i would recommend anyone to request sitting at the table he serves. I will be back again...
PS: Would love to see your maintenance team work on the water pressure to the restrooms:)

I think given the fact you are in the middle of nowhere, to have such amenities in 'tents' is just a credit to the Kenyan people and their ability to play hosts to tourists.

the setting of the 'camp' is next to the Talek river and it's simply beautiful. our tent was based facing the river where the monkeys climbed in the trees outside. it was lovely.

there was a restaurant which was always quiet and also a bar. the staff couldn't do enough for you and i repeat myself again... when in the middle of nowhere how they make a cocktail the way they do is beyond me!

the main reason why anyone is here is the safari and i must admit we were more than catered for. my safari experience was simply unforgettable and that is largely down to our guides who seem to know the place like the back of their hand.

the safari was beyond incredible. we were even lucky enough to see pretty much everything there is to see, including the hard to find black rhino.

i'd go again in a heart beat.

can i also make a little side-note here... i am a massive animal lover and prior to going on safari i was TERRIFIED about seeing animals hunt and eat each other but when you're in their domain, their natural habitat i can promise you it's nothing but jaw dropping. you watch nature programmes at home and think 'wow' but when you're there, in the flesh, watching, it's a whole different story. if you want to go on a safari holiday, go to the masai mara. i'm pretty sure not much else can compare.
