Exclusive Safari Lodge in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve – Greater Kruger National Park

RockFig Safari Lodge is situated in the world renowned ‘Big 5’ Timbavati Private Nature Reserve and borders the Kruger National Park, which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park.

In a setting simply described as spectacular, RockFig Safari Lodge nestles beneath nature’s magnificent weeping boer-bean, leadwood, tamboti and jackalberry trees, overlooking a water hole where game frequents daily.

This refreshingly tranquil hideaway was named after one of the legendary resident female leopards and is situated along a bend of the seasonal Ross River. The lodge has a personality all of its own which inspires people to re-group and take cognisance of where they are.

You will have exclusive use of the lodge and have the option of either self-catering or enjoying the convenience of a fully catered getaway. Due to the fact you will have exclusive use of the camp we are able to personalise our service, where you will arrive as guests and leave as friends.
