On arrival in Hoedspruit airport (HDS), you will be met your private driver who will transfer you through to your first accommodation. This is the stunning RockFig Safari Lodge situated in Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.  

The luxurious Rockfig Safari Lodge was created to showcase and merge with its magnificent Timbavati setting. A relaxed ambiance is formed through the skilful flow between indoor and outdoor designer spaces, and the décor, beautiful furnishings and art pieces allow for both communal and private moments suffused with an authentic bush feel.

On a winters evening, settle in the lounge beside the fireplace, sharing safari stories. Meals have an emphasis on local produce and are whipped up in the open-plan kitchen, where guests can watch the process and perhaps pick up a few tips. Dining takes place at a communal table, in the boma beside a crackling fire, or on your private veranda (for a romantic candlelit dinner).
