Rockfig Safari Lodge

12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 6.5 bathrooms
Bush sounds filter through the open-sided living areas of this thatched-roof, lantern-lit retreat in the heart of South Africa’s Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. The reserve’s 60,000 hectares border Kruger National Park and were named for the 2 white lions that once called this territory their own. Today, it’s home to 360 bird species and the Big 5 game, all only a short flight from Johannesburg.
Start and finish each day on the reserve getting close to wildlife with game drives led by professional guides and limited to 4 people in each vehicle. The unfenced border with Kruger National Park means that more than 40 mammal species are free to roam both the park and the reserve.
After a bush breakfast or meals back at the lodge, spend the afternoon on a guided bush walk, birdwatching excursion, or midday safari. Kids get an activity pack when they arrive; check off a few adventures, and they can leave with a special certificate.
Rinse the dust away under the lodge’s private alfresco showers or indulge in a spa treatment at extra cost. If you want to get even closer to the wildlife or understand the workings of a game reserve, ask about optional activities like rhino chipping and elephant collaring, which are not included in a stay but offer the chance to help in important conservation efforts.
