Lodge Review | RockFig Safari Lodge, Timbavati Game Reserve

Megan Warrington

Author: Megan Warrington - 18 September 2018

Last Update: 30 January 2024

Part of the Timbavati Luxury Lodges & African Safari Collection

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

  • Laundry service
  • Wireless connectivity

Born out of a deep love for Timbavati, RockFig’s owners dreamed of an intimate, family-friendly lodge in the Kruger National Park, 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.
