"Camp Fig Tree review"

3 nights Arrived 2 Jan 2015
"Lovely place, delightful people. We went once with them to Addo and were shown Meercts which we'd never have noticed on our own. We are better at elephants. Went again on our own which was fun.

We did a walk with Saul our guide. interesting, he looked after us well and was a mine of info. Meals were fine and we felt like colonial settlers, prices were ever so reasonable

Things we noticed - their upkeep/maintenance is poor. The swimming pool is falling to bits on the outside, our loo door didn't shut and could easily have been fixed and the worst is the "unfiltered" water. No drinking water, the bath/shower/basin water us really DARK brown and very unpleasant to bathe in let alone wash light coloured clothes. A bath is literally dark brown and opaque.

They say this is unfiltered well water but aesthetically it is not nice. The electricity is turned off during the day so the pool water is full of debris as the skimmers cant work without power. So lovely place, but needs more £££ spent on it." See all these reviews: 18n in South Africa
