Rockfig Safari Lodge, Top Destination in Kruger Park

RockFig Safari Lodge is all about thrilling game activities in a family friendly 5-star safari lodge in the renowned Timbavati Reserve bordering Kruger. This luxury big five safari lodge encompasses only six suites in the renowned Timbavati Private Game Reserve, revered for its exceptional service in a private and intimate environment.

Find RockFig Lodge perfectly placed on this superb 30 000 acres of prime land where diverse wild animals still exist. Guests love two Big 5 safari drives daily in the comfort of an open vehicle and exciting walking safaris into the thick natural bushveld.

Appreciate an exclusive game viewing experience at Rockfig with only eight guests maximum being treated to bush coffees, bush breakfasts, diners around the boma fire and mindful activities beside the sparkling infinity pool. Children are so welcomed and made to feel extra special as they become part of the brilliant adventures to find animals and learn about their natural habitats.   

Only 6 new, modern, stylish and warmly decorated suites feature air-conditioners, fans, mosquito nets, deep baths looking out over the wilds, indoor and outdoor showers, hairdryers, mini-bars, wi-fi and extra beds if required for children. 

Come to Rockfig Safari Lodge at any time of the year as every day is a new experience here, with so much to see and learn about. Dry winters reveal more wildlife gathering at water points and lush summers are brilliant with all the greens, the water and the thrill of finding game in the thornveld forests and plains. 

We love RockFig Safari Lodge as one of two prestigious reserves in South Africa where guests have the chance to spot White Lions! Absorb glorious views out towards a water hole from the rim flow pool, sunny deck, and seating area. It is amazing how Rock Fig Lodge has been ingeniously designed to blend into the wilderness, enhanced with quality art from local artists. Such an easy space for all ages, especially children who can run around safely, swim and enjoy entertainment from attentive staff. 

Start your safari vacation at Rckfig Safari Lodge with a dawn wake up call, rusks and coffee, then out to see birds, beasts and plants. Settle into immaculate safari vehicles for only 4 guests at a time and watch the bush come – with guided walks added to boost your knowledge and experience of this fantastical landscape. 

Later afternoon game drives involve scintillating cocktails in a remote spot with magnificent sunset views and a choice of 18 locally brewed gins! Later, share stories around the blazing log fire in the boma and tuck into delicious South African cuisine. 

Does this sound like the perfect safari in Africa to you? We can take you there with one of our customised family package deals where Timbavati and the white lions are the main attraction at a top end lodge called Rockfig. 



Every guest who experiences Rockfig Safari Lodge raves about it because it is a fabulous, friendly, luxury, super relaxing destination in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve next to the famous South African Kruger National Park. Rockfig Lodge exceeds all expectations in terms of the friendliness of the staff, the world class service, the superb high standards of food, and top-notch safari experiences every day.

Professional game rangers and trackers treat guests to their encyclopaedic knowledge about biodiversity, habitats, stars and life in general. Learn about the magnificent Timbavati Private Game Reserve and its 75 000 ha of pristine wilderness where buffalos, lions, giraffes, wildebeest, impalas, baboons, cheetahs, leopards, and the rare white lion reside in peace. Learn that the Global White Lion Protection Trust (GWLPT) reinstated white lions into their natural habitat here in 2009, and they have been successfully surviving since then.

Feel as if you are on a summer camp for adults, making new friends with the other guests, and experiencing many intimate wildlife moments. Game drives are exclusive as families stick together on their own safari vehicle. Guided bush walks are equally rewarding when you find diverse animal spoor, berries, herbs, insects and birds. 

Honeymoon guests will love the discounted romantic rate for two, the deep bathtubs with wilderness views and the indoor and outdoor showers, a private deck and more. So much attention to detail in this new, slick safari lodge. All living areas are interconnected and guests can watch the chef at work in the kitchen while sipping excellent South African wines. Rockfig Lodge will forever hold a special place in your heart after just one visit to this top of the range safari destination in the Timbavati Game Reserve. 

The luxury suites include firm king beds, walk in showers and soaking bathtubs with bush views, double vanity, and large deck areas that include outdoor showers. Plenty of space and forever comfort, new fittings and modern furnishings ensure guests are happy and relaxed. 

It is such a pleasure to eat sumptuous breakfasts daily in the bush, a full breakfast buffet in the middle of the bush, includes cooked foods, freshly squeezed juices, cocktails, wine, cured meats, cheese, various pastries, fruit, eggs, potatoes, grilled tomatoes, bacon, sausage, toast, and mushrooms. How amazing is that?!

Find the rocking RockFig on the unfenced border of Kruger National Park, blending intimately into the natural surrounds and only comprising 6 suites, a few lunch tables, a fire pit, a covered sitting area, and a small (non-heated) infinity pool and deck with lounge chairs. Elephants often love to come have a drink at the pool. 

This Timbavati safari lodge is like a boutique hotel in the remote wilderness setting without too many additions like gums or spas, just the bushveld drives and walks which is what guests come for after all.
