RockFig Safari Lodge
Luxury Safari Suites
Set in the heart of Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, adjacent to the famous Kruger National Park, RockFig Safari Lodge is well situated for forays into the African wilds.
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.
RockFig Safari Lodge features just six chalet-type suites, which additionally provides an alternative option 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. Although guests are always conscious of where they are, no stone is left unturned in the quest for comfort and luxury, with each suite featuring both indoor and outdoor showers, a private verandah ideal for romantic candlelit dinners, a minibar and a bath.
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. Spending time on the details of the ecosystem can be immensely rewarding, and surprising. Learn how every living creature, no matter how small, has its part to play in this interlinked web of life.
