Fig Tree Camp, Masai Mara, Kenya

Little known fact! When Lyndsay studied Environmental Biology in Kenya in the 1990s, her field study in the Masai Mara was based at Fig Tree Camp! It's such a hidden gem for travelers who can't afford a big splurge, but still want a traditional safari experience. This camp is often overlooked due to its size, but it offers a truly intimate feel and the setting is spectacular.

Set on the banks of the Talek River, on the northern border of the Masai Mara Reserve, sits this simple yet elegant camp which is among one of the oldest tented camps in the famous Masai Mara. Its central location makes all areas of the park easily accessible during game drives ensuring that you miss absolutely nothing.

Fig Tree Camp comprises of 80 rooms spread along the river bank giving guests the choice of accommodation in tents or garden chalets (for a more enclosed structure). Out of the total 48 tents available, 10 of these are super luxury tents in a private wing of the camp with open views of the Mara Plains.

All guests are sure to have a comfortable and memorable stay with a wide variety of facilities,
services and activities on offer. These include two bars, a main dining room, an open-air dining area and tree house coffee deck, a video room, guest lecture facilities, a swimming pool and curio shop.

For those guests looking for something a bit more active, game drives, guest lectures, nature walks, balloon safaris and private bush dinners are also on offer.
