Rockfig Safari Lodge

Lodge style Family friendly safari lodge

Take the family on safari

The luxurious Rockfig Safari Lodge, was created to showcase and merge with its magnificent Timbavati setting. A relaxed ambiance is formed through the skilful flow between indoor and outdoor designer spaces, and the décor, beautiful furnishings and art pieces allow for both communal and private moments suffused with an authentic bush feel. Just six suites have in- and outdoor showers, baths with views and private verandahs. On a winters evening, settle in the lounge beside the fireplace, sharing safari stories. Meals have an emphasis on local produce and are whipped up in the open-plan kitchen, where guests can watch the process and perhaps pick up a few tips. Dining takes place at a communal table, in the boma beside a crackling fire, or on your private verandah (for a romantic candlelit dinner). When not on game drives and bush walks in search of the animals which inhabit this big 5 reserve, perhaps relax beside the pool with its outlook over the waterhole, or enjoy a rejuvenating spa treatment.

Activities at Rockfig Safari Lodge

Exciting safari activities are on offer at Rockfig Safari Lodge in Timbavati. Game drives (vehicle safaris) rank among the quintessential Timbavati experiences, and the fieldguides and trackers at Rockfig pride themselves on providing unforgettable, close but safe wildlife encounters. Timbavati is home to the Big Five, and as many of the trackers grew up in the area they are able to put all their local knowledge to work to ensure the best possible wildlife sightings. Of course being out on safari isn’t just about wiildlife; it is also your chance to appreciate the beauty of the South African bushveld while traversing it.

Guided walking safaris are an exciting way to experience Timbavati Game Reserve on foot. Bring your walking shoes; the guides and trackers have everything else that’s required, not least their knowledge of tracks and plants.

TripAdvisor reviews Rockfig Safari Lodge

A treat of a lifetime is staying at Rockfig! It is gorgeous - the rooms are fabulous & the setting and common areas amazing with an open kitchen that truly makes you feel at home. Especially when a heard of 30 elephants shows up to drink from the pool! The team is spectacular. From the moment Simone welcomes you, taking care of every need to the OUT OF THIS WORLD food!

This was my fifth safari trip to South Africa, and I have now stayed at 13 different lodges over the years. All of them were amazing, but I have to say that RockFig tops them all. It is small and intimate with beautiful facilites and a top rate staff. They did an amazing job of meeting the needs of our group and the game viewing was amazing. Our guide and tracker (Almiro and Sydney) were the best. I am looking forward to planning another trip to South Africa in the next few years, and RockFig will definitley be on my itinerary. Kudos to all who made our stay there one to remember.
