Project Description

RockFig Safari Lodge is located in the world renowned Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which shares an unfenced border with Kruger National Park.

In a setting simply described as spectacular, RockFig Safari Lodge is nestled beneath nature’s magnificent weeping boer-bean, leadwood, tamboti and jackalberry trees, overlooking a waterhole where game can be seen daily.

This charming and homely hideaway was named after one of the legendary resident female leopards, and it is the perfect bush destination for families with children of all ages, or for groups of up to 8 people. Guests enjoy exclusive use of the lodge and have the option of either self-catering, or savouring the convenience of a fully catered getaway. With exclusive use of the camp, staff can personalize the service.

As part of the Timbavati Association, the lodge upholds the values of conservation and sustainable land use.

You are invited to refresh your spirit and explore this slice of South African paradise.

Detailed Description

Self-Catering for Groups

In this beautifully secluded, colonial African style camp, guests enjoy simple comforts in the five rooms available. Each has a fly screen on the windows and doors, an overhead fan, air conditioning and mosquito nets over the beds.

While all linen, bath towels and swimming towels are provided, you will find in-room amenities to include products from the Terra Firma Range.

Facilities

An open-air boma is a truly authentic way to enjoy African evenings, sitting around a campfire recounting the day’s adventures. By day, relax at the rock pool, while keeping watch over the nearby waterhole frequented by thirsty elephants, buffalo and giraffes.

Bush Dining

Choose to self-cater your holiday at RockFig, or savour the convenience of a fully catered getaway. Either way, a fully equipped kitchen invites a warm and social atmosphere that adjoins the dining area. A traditional boma invites you to set a table in the great outdoors and unwind to fireside tales of adventure.

Activities

Timbavati Private Nature Reserve borders Kruger National Park and is home to a diverse and rare range of species. Fences do not exist to encourage the natural migration of the wildlife. This area is unspoiled and thrives as a true African wilderness.

The “Big Five” – leopard, lion, buffalo, rhino and elephant – are a common sighting, and if you’re very lucky you might see the famed white lions.

More than 360 species of birds can be spotted in the Timbavati, which makes it a popular destination for birders.
