Fig Tree Bush Camp Highlights

Fig Tree Bush Camp’s name is inspired by the great, old fig tree under which the sociable boma area is built, which creates wonderful shade and attracts a cacophony of birdsong to the camp. There are four canvas tents, each sleeping two guests in twin or double beds, which are raised on 3-metre-high platforms, creating somewhat of a treehouse effect. These unique tents overlook the clear, sandy lagoon, which attracts wildlife to its edge all throughout the dry season, while the second view point looks onto the open grassland behind camp. The simple tented suites have individual balconies and use natural wood to keep things authentic.

Useful Information
  • Each of the four tents at Fig Tree are designed to sleep two people - two have twin beds and two have doubles.
  • The decor and interiors are simple and in tune with the natural surroundings. Beds have mosquito nets and rustic wooden headboards, and each bedroom opens onto a balcony with chairs.
  • At the back of each tent is an en suite bathroom, which is semi-outdoors with a canvas roof. A stone shower and natural wood vanity complete the look.
  • Under the giant fig tree, the main gathering area of the camp is built. A wooden platform with canvas roof contains the bar and dining area, with stairs that lead down to an open-air fireplace.

Fig Tree Bush Camp Game Viewing and Activities

What is unique about Fig Tree Bush Camp is its location. Kafue National Park is one of Zambia’s less visited parks, but it is the largest (in fact, one of the largest in the world). It has received a lot of tender loving care since it was badly affected by poaching and degradation over many years, and is now a flourishing wildlife area once again. Incredible work has been done by conservation organisations to rehabilitate Kafue, and its animal numbers have increased exponentially. Fig Tree occupies a remote location in the central-northern region of the park and with its lagoon-frontage, it attracts elephant, buffalo, red lechwe, puku, hyena, leopard, lion, and an enormous diversity of birds. The plains that open up behind the camp are the perfect place for game drives and walking safaris as guides take guests on twice daily game-viewing adventures.
