Andrew Walker’s love of the bush and his insatiable desire to share it with friends and family led to him founding Rockfig Lodge over 20 years ago. After acquiring a lease in Madikwe game reserve in 2000, he built his own home away from home, Inkwe family house. This soon became home to regular cherished family holidays.
In 2013, Andrew set about creating a private commercial lodge. Andrew never did things in half measures and true to form he built the most beautiful guest Villas and central entertainment area. Rockfig officially opened in 2019.
Andrew sadly passed away in 2021, but the family continue to keep his pioneering passion alive through the lodge.
His desire to create an environment which offers guests a unique and immersive safari experience is realised through each and every visitor who walks through our doors. Our team take great pride in continuing to share his love of the untamed bush and abundant wildlife. To date Rockfig lodge has been one of the most popular lodges in the area amongst both local and overseas guests, receiving numerous outstanding reviews.
Rockfig lodge is named after a beautiful Rock fig tree that grows on the magical cliff overlooking Madikwe hills, our logo represents this special tree. Guests can experience this amazing cliff and majestic tree whilst enjoying our speciality High Tea or Sundowners from our private cliff lookout point.
