There’s something special about RockFig, and it’s not just because it’s an absolutely gorgeous safari lodge in Timbavati Game Reserve, offering unparalleled luxury for nature-aficionados from across the globe. It was built from love from the ground up, by the Jenkins family, whose personal touch can still be felt from within every corner.
On their very first game drive on the land where it now stands, Glen and Bruce Jenkins unexpectedly came across an unusually relaxed female leopard gazing down upon them from the fork of a large tree― a RockFig tree, which then inspired its name.
As a guest at RockFig each day will be an effortless blend of exclusivity, relaxation and indulgence, tailored to meet your every need. From the well-designed indoor and outdoor guest spaces, an open-plan kitchen, to the viewing deck overlooking the waterhole. Each moment spent here is spent well, without ever distracting from that harmonious “I’m in the wilderness” sensibility.
While the 4x4 game drives and bush walks are always a top favourite, some of the best moments will be spent by the fireplace in the lounge, or rather out in the boma during shared dinners and safari stories of your game viewing encounters: a skulking white lion, or a lucky encounter with a pack of African wild dogs. RockFig is just the kind of place to bring you even closer to the bush, without feeling that you’re missing out on anything.
What’s also great about this safari lodge in the Timbavati Game Reserve, is that you can book it for your exclusive use for families or groups of friends. Children of all ages are always welcome.
