Out On Safari
Heading out on game drives from RockFig Safari Lodge gives guests the chance to get in tune with the Timbavati wilds, and see how the professional guides and trackers read the signs of the bush to anticipate the movements and behaviour of birds and animals for the best possible viewing and photographic opportunities.
The experience of being out on safari at RockFig Safari Lodge sees every detail taken care of so that guests can focus on soaking up the incredible atmosphere of the bush (or on getting that perfect safari shot!)
RockFig’s custom-built game viewers are fully equipped, carrying – among other things – blankets, binoculars, reference books and preferred refreshments for guests.
Every guest has a ‘window’ seat looking out onto Big Five territory; with just four guests per shared vehicle, there’s almost as much space on board as there is to explore beyond the lodge! This allows for easy access to camera equipment, plus the layers of clothing that can make winter mornings and evenings more comfortable.
Family groups get their own private vehicle, which means that there’s no age restrictions, plus later starts and earlier finishes can easily be arranged so that the safari day is not too long for younger wildlife enthusiasts.
Every game drive is conducted by an experienced guide behind the wheel and a local tracker perched up front, where he can best spot tracks and signs.
As well as the almost telepathic communication between these two professionals, vehicles throughout Timbavati are linked by radios so that the various guides can share special sightings with each other … and coordinate viewings so there’s never a crowd.
