Lodge Review | RockFig Safari Lodge, Timbavati Game Reserve

discoverafrica 18 September 2018

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.

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.
