Allow us to introduce the brand new, RockFig Safari Lodge. Located in the Timbavati Game Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, this cool, contemporary lodge creates a contrast between the 30 000 acres of fenced wilderness around you and the boutique experience of your stay.


Six chalet-style, en-suite rooms only accommodate eight guests at a time; lowering the tourism footprint and allowing guests to set their own pace. Enjoy modern and fully equipped rooms and stylish communal areas, including:


  • Air Conditioning, fans and mosquito netting  
  • Indoor and outdoor showers
  • Private verandah overlooking the bush
  • A communal dining area, lounge and outside area, with views of the nearby watering hole
  • Rim-flow swimming pool
  • An open kitchen serving contemporary South African cuisine




  • Roaring fireplace for cold winter days
  • Laundry service
  • Wireless connectivity


Born out of a deep love for Timbavati, RockFig’s owners dreamed of an intimate, family-friendly lodge where people can come together to enjoy an experience like no other; a South Africa safari that brings people closer together, a home-away-from-home.


Luxury level: 5/5

Malaria-free: No





  • Early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives (two vehicles seating a maximum of four guests)
  • Walking safaris where one can truly immerse themselves in the wild
