Activities at Fig Tree Camp
Fig Tree is open from May until November each year. It closes during the wet season as the camp inaccessible by road. From May till November the guides are able to get around the park and this is the period in which game drives are doable.
Fig Tree Camp offers game drives daily. One departs at sunrise and the afternoon drive (partly a night drive) leaves at approximately 2 hours before sunset. Drivers are 3.5 to 4 hours long. The game drives always begin right from camp and end back in camp. Game drives can be arranged directly in camp with the manager.
Walking safaris are available from June unit November when the camp closes. Grasses are still quite tall in May and certain areas still a bit muddy which makes walking unfavorable.
Walks leave in the early morning hours after sunrise to avoid the heat of the day. The walks begin right from camp and right from the get go, there's plenty to see along the banks of the Shishamba River. Our guides will talk you through everything Kafue has to offer that otherwise goes unnoticed, showing how the whole ecosystem works together to support the National Park. You can find nature at its most untouched on such safaris.
