Doctors who attended to Isabella "Pippie" Kruger say they hope to send her home by the end of the year.
The little girl was on Wednesday discharged from the Garden City Hospital after undergoing groundbreaking skin graft surgery.
The three-year-old sustained third degree burns to 80 percent of her body and was given just a 10 percent chance of survival.
She was moved to a rehabilitation centre on Wedensday, where she will undergo intensive therapy.
Her plastic surgeon, Dr Ridwan Mia says she will be under the care of a paediatric neurologist at the rehabilitation centre.
"They are going to make sure that she regains her muscle strength, she regains her joint range of motion and she's going to get lots of psychological counselling."
Her father had been lighting the second fire for a family braai on New Year's Eve when his bottle of gel fire-lighter exploded.
The little girl was three metres away. Her mother, Anice, described the sound as a gunshot going off.
The little girl was in the care of staff at Garden City Hospital for six months after her successful skin graft operation.
