Fig Tree Bush Camp has tented accommodation on 3-meter platforms above the ground, giving a spectacular view over the lagoon and the plains towards the entrance of the camp. We have 4 en-suite luxury safari tents on stilts (2 twins and 2 double).
Guests will stay in one of our 4 furnished safari tents. Each tent overlooks the lagoon but also has a private view of the plains behind the camp offering unique opportunities to spot game. Each safari tent has an en-suite bathroom and veranda presenting a unique view from the tree canopy. Guests will then come together underneath the Fig Tree, from which the camp is named, to savor the serenity of the lagoon as well as delicious food and wine.
Fig Tree Bush Camp offers superb food and after a three-course supper guests will sit around a campfire, feet in the sand, gazing at the stars and listening to the sounds of the African Bush.
Fig Tree offers two activities, the first of which is Game Drives. These are available twice daily, one in the morning departing at sunrise, and one in the evening, which turns into a night safari. The guides take you from camp on a tour of the several surrounding loops, where you can see a mix of vegetation, from the open plains and tall grass, to the areas of thick bush. You can see the animals parading in the open, or camouflaged with the African bush. Then following sundowners over the hippo pools, the night safari and search for nocturnal animals begins. The guides will return you to camp with the fire ready and time enough to enjoy all the stars the night sky has to offer.
Walking safaris depart in the early morning after the sun rises to avoid the heat of the day. The walk will begin with a short briefing from a guide, before you head off into the African bush and have the chance to get closer to nature than ever before. Our guides have a wealth of knowledge about Kafue National Park, and will share their knowledge with you, from the insects on the ground, to the birds in the sky. Walks last approximately 3 hours and you will return to camp ready for one of our deliciously prepared breakfasts.
Fondly known as the warm heart of Africa, Malawi is an undiscovered gem full of adventure.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
