The Fig Tree House



Come and camp in a tree. You will sleep high up in the canopy of this forest giant open to the elements – yet protected. Wild and primitive yet at the same time comfortable and secure. All amenities are provided – ablutions, hot shower, cooking facilities, beds – in the heart of the Lowveld bush.



Summary of the cost and details



This region is rich in things to explore. With the Kruger on our doorstep there is game drives and much more to choose from. There will be lots to explore if you want to tear yourself away from the serenity of the natural forest where the civilized world seems far away.

Where are we

Where are we

Conveniently situated for travellers on their way to Mozambique or a holiday in the Kruger National Park. We are on the Mozambique side of Nelspruit, on the Mara road close to Kaapmuiden. This is the ideal break away from civilization or a perfect stop over if you are on your way to do some exploring.

The Fig Tree House in Elle Decor

We are delighted to be one of the three places selected to stay at by the Elle decoration-in their October 2017 issue.  We have always loved the Elle decor and feel honored to be included in their pages this month.


Klipkop, snipkop, kuierkop of slimkop? Dalk is dit ‘n braaikop? Of ‘n lagkop? Hierdie oulike klip langs die pad oppad boomhuis toe, lyk amper asof ‘n groot beeldhouer hom uitgekerf het. Hy herhinder ons ook baie aan iemand lekker….wie kan raai aan wie?

Spring special offer

Pay for two nights, but stay for three until the end of November 2017!

Only valid for midweek stays (Mon-Thurs) and for new bookings

Laeveld beloftes

C. Louis Leipold 1980

‘Die son spat splinters goud en louter lig,

Die hemel pronk met kleureprag en dig

Lê weelde oor die wêreld in glans van goud en kleur;

En orals in die rondte is rykdom te bespeur:

Natuur se geil-gegewe buit;

Die veld se bont-geverfde geruit;

Die koor van voëls wat sing;

Die blye pret van alles wat huppel en juig en spring;
Van loerie-voëls wat, pragtig blou,

Met trots-gekuifde hoogmoed die laeveld aanskou.

Dit is ‘n nuwe wêreld hier

En anderste as tuis die veld die mooiste maande vier.

Hier is nog net belofte van wat nog later kom:

Groen grasskeutjies bo die grond; boom nog sonder blom;

Vinkeneste, halfpad nat, nog maar halfpad klaar;

Kafferboom al aan die bot, skoon nog sonder blaar –

Groot belofte vir die Toekoms wat so baie hou.

Soos die wolke vol met reën drywend teen die blou;

Groot belofte vir die Toekoms wat so veel voorspel,

Ryker oes wat later kom as die veld vervel.’

Kyk die mooi kompliment wat ons onlangs kry van toeriste uit Japan 🙂

Look at the lovely compliment received all the way from Japan 🙂

Dear Sirs

We stayed your tree house on 17Aug. one night.
It was so fantastic !!
My clients enjoyed and mentioned best night in this tour.
We put some foods and staffs on the table if someone use it.

Now we are looking for any similar interesting place in South Africa for end
of this year.

Many thanks K.Fujii Dososhin Tokyo, Japan
