The one thing that drew me to stay at Camp Fig Tree is the original 1920's traditional colonial building style, they are exquisite,

At Camp Figtree the stars of the Southern skies can be clearly seen in all their awesome beauty, what a beautiful sight.













Camp fig tree was a great getaway, set on top of the stunning Zuurberg mountain range in The Eastern Cape.

The camp boasts some of the most breathtaking 270-degree views to be found in this South African region.

Stunning Lodge.
