Once a private home, RockFig Safari Lodge offers five-star luxury for those who love to spend as much time enjoying a lodge as they do on game drives. With only six chalet-type suites, this is the perfect private safari option to book for multigenerational holidays with your nearest and dearest – or you can slip away for a romantic weekend or bush honeymoon. Each of the six suites has a soothing colour palette with accents of colour and textured layering, creating a restful cocoon for those who come to the bush to restore their frazzled souls after a busy work year. Believe me, RockFig’s team will make sure you emerge rested and energized for the season ahead!
