RockFig Safari Lodge features just six chalet-type suites, making it ideal for exclusive-use bookings for families or groups of friends. 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 veranda ideal for romantic candlelit dinners, a minibar and a bath.

The open-plan kitchen is a favourite with younger guests, who love to sit at the counter and watch their meals being prepared, while it’s hard to resist the pull of the fireplace in the lounge on a winter’s evening. Subtle touches of opulence are throughout, including the dreamy chandelier that hangs over the impressive, 4m-long table, which is perfect for shared meals and safari stories. Many of the pieces of furniture in the lodge were commissioned from local artisans, while the colours take inspiration from the Rockfig tree and the area’s lovely lichen-spotted rocks.

A second, long dining table can be found outside. The undoubted outdoor centrepiece is the comfortable covered lounge with its arresting views, although the pool deck, overlooking the waterhole, is just as inviting. A dip into the pool perfectly symbolises the feeling of being immersed in the rhythms of Timbavati, while its surrounding loungers are responsible for a perfectly relaxed afternoon, perhaps punctuated by pizza from the outdoor oven. The boma area becomes the focal point on starry nights, as the crackles of the firewood compete with the cackles of hyaenas and the hushed, happy whispers of guests.

Rockfig Safari Lodge offers morning and afternoon game drive activities, with the afternoon drive extending into the evening with a spotlight for viewing of nocturnal creatures. The custom-built vehicles are first class and a 4 guest per vehicle policy is enforced to ensure each guest has a window seats and plenty of space on the vehicle. Groups or families are offered their own vehicle and can thus have more per vehicle if they wish. Armed walking safaris are also offered at Rockfig which cannot be recommended highly enough!
