RockFig Safari Lodge South Africa

Set in the heart of South Africa’s Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, adjacent to Kruger National Park, RockFig Safari Lodge is ideally situated for forays into the African wilds. Game drives let you explore in the comfort of a vehicle, while walking safaris put you right on the ground, discovering the area under your own steam.

RockFig Safari Lodge features just six chalet-type suites catering for 12 guests at a time, making it ideal for exclusive-use bookings for families or groups of friends. The sense of place comes through strongly, with the colour palette in each room inspired by the purple and green hues of local birds and plants. Indoor and outdoor showers, a private veranda, a minibar and a bath add to the amenities.

The communal areas are just as thoughtfully decorated. The open-plan kitchen is a favourite place to hang out, and outdoors the centrepiece is the covered lounge with its arresting views. There’s also a pool overlooking the waterhole.

Meals at RockFig Safari Lodge let you experience the tastes of Timbavati. Opt for the bushveld equivalent of silver service, enjoy private dining on your veranda, or if you’ve brought your kids along, let them watch their dinner being prepared from the kitchen counter.

Game drives rank among the quintessential experiences from RockFig Safari Lodge and from here you can guarantee an incredible, safe but close wildlife encounters.

Why we recommend RockFig Safari Lodge

RockFig Safari Lodge, Greater Kruger, South Africa

Situated in the legendary Timbavati Game Reserve adjoining the iconic Kruger National Park in South Africa, RockFig Safari Lodge offers just six luxury suites with stunning views over the bushveld. RockFig Safari Lodge aims to be as flexible as possible, welcoming children of all ages to stay, and accommodating families in their own game drive vehicle. We love the fact that the standard number of guests on a game drive is limited to four only, compared to the standard six guests per vehicle at most other safari lodges in the region.
