Good camp near Talek Gate

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 26, 2007

This place is an extraordinary deal. It is significantly cheaper than other lodges in the area, but offers really nice comfortable accomodation and ameneties in a gorgeous setting. It's reached by a wooded bridge that crosses the Talek River. Tere is a swimming pool, permanent tent sizes that have river and savanah views and fully equiped cabins and a couple of luxurious chalets. The meals are plentiful and delicious. Full board.

Unique Quality: The camp is near lion territory. There is a decently sized pride around. Hyenas are everywhere.

Directions: Book through Mada Hotels in Nairobi

Perfect Surroundings and Great Food

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 5, 2005

We stayed at the Fig Tree Camp for three days in one of the tents and wished we had booked to stay longer as this really was the highlight of our trip.

The tents are spacious and very clean and have a bathroom onsuite and a balcony where you can sit and watch the wildlife on the plains. Our tent was directly in front of the river (see pic) which was beautiful.

The staff of Fig Tree Camp are absolutely wonderful, very polite and friendly and really make your stay special.

Fig tree has a small pool and a nice restaurant and bar at the entrance. The food is buffet style and was very good indeed. There was also nightly entertainment which ranged from the hilarious (silly songs and dance) to the facinating (lectures about the wildlife).

Unique Quality: Fig Tree Camp has a wonderful camp fire at the entrance which is lit every evening in time for pre-dinner drinks. This was particularly enchanting and it was lovely to sit and share stories of the game seen that day with other guests. To help break the ice, the bats in the huge fig tree that overhangs the fire, take great delight in regurgitating their food and spitting it down on the heads of the guests below! If you're lucky you may also get a visit from a resident bush baby.

Fig tree camp is on the banks of the Talek river and so is located in a very beautiful spot. At night before bed we would shine our torches across the river from our balcony and see the shining eyes staring out of the bushes.
