Named after the massive Fig Tree that stands central in camp and under which stories of your African adventure unfold. This is untouched wilderness. Great wildlife sightings and very few tourists. Here you’re almost guaranteed an exceptional safari experience. Everything at Fig Tree is about the wildlife.
With only four en-suite tents and a maximum of eight guests in camp at any given time, your stay here is quiet and personal with a focus on the surrounding bush. And there’s lots of it. In front of the camp a sandy lagoon and behind, the open plains. From your tent, you’ll enjoy the view of both as you’re three metres above the ground on stilts.
Remote with rustic character, it’s understated with no vices. Comfortable with good hospitality and a great big helping of the wildlife that you’ve come to the area for.
Kafue National Park is known to show off numerous species of plains game like elephant, puku, impala, warthog, zebra and hartebeest. And where there is prey there are predators so expect to see lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena and wild dogs.
Eco-friendly safari tents (either twin or double) with en-suite bathrooms; inside shower and single vanity; private veranda with outside seating; mosquito nets; solar power; coffee & tea on request
Dining area; lounge; bar; infinity swimming pool; camp fire; boma; hammocks; inter-camp transfers
There are only two activities on offer here, but guaranteed they are the main activities you’ll be wanting to do in the Kafue National Park: game drives and walking safaris.
Game drives are either in the morning departing as the sun rises or in the late afternoon at sunset and into the evening to include some night driving too. It’s cooler during these times so animals are more active and sightings will be better with the possibility of snapping some incredible action shots. Who knows? You may just come upon a predator in hot pursuit of its next meal. Thrilling!
The walking safaris although more focused on the bush and nature are still equally thrilling knowing the animals that call this place home. It’s all about what you’ll come across, the vegetation, insects, birds and the wild at large. Departing just after sunrise before the heat of the day, you’ll be out for about 3 hours before returning for a well-earned breakfast. (Walks are usually on request, so it’s best to ask about this activity when you arrive).
Whatever activity you’re doing, you can expect great wildlife sightings and in between a laze on a hammock or dip in the pool sounds pretty fine too.
