About Jock Safari Lodge

Nestled amidst lush vegetation in the South-Western corner of the majestic beauty that is the Kruger National Park, Jock Safari Lodge emerges at the pinnacle where the Mitomeni and Biyamiti rivers flow as one – a space for breath-taking wildlife sightings. The lodge with 6000 hectares of natural landscape offers guests one of the best Big 5 game viewing experiences in South Africa with its exclusive riverbed traversing rights.

Rich in historical heritage, Jock is the first private game lodge within South Africa’s largest national park and was inspired by the well-known tale of Jock of the Bushveld by Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, a story of courage and loyalty set during South Africa’s first gold rush era.

Jock Safari Lodge features two beautifully styled lodges - The Main Jock Lodge and Fitzpatrick's Lodge.

The Main Jock Loge is screened by lush trees and reed walls, offering guests a distinct and luxurious safari experience surrounded by unspoilt wilderness. The individual style of the main lodge and twelve suites assures guests of a serene and secluded stay designed in pure harmony with that of the natural surroundings. Each suite leads onto a private deck with a plunge pool, sala, an outdoor day bed, all with a spectacular view of the riverbed. The lodge offers in and outdoor dining facilities, a relaxation retreat with a sauna and exercise room, gift boutique, library with TV and DVD player, and complimentary Wi-Fi .

Fitzpatrick's Lodge is the perfect haven for small groups, families, and individuals seeking to unwind amidst the natural beauty of the Kruger National Park offering three perfectly appointed rooms that cater for children. This new lodge can either be booked as a whole lodge with its own personal chef & game ranger or as individual suites. The lodge offers a lounge with TV and library, a second lounge with a fireplace, complimentary Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities, perimeter electric fence and a rock swimming pool. The lodge is child-friendly, children aged 4 – 6 are taken on game drives in a closed vehicle whereas children from 7 to 11 join adults on the normal game drives conducted in open vehicles.

Traversing through the concession, the wildlife is sometimes staggering in its diversity. Personally assigned rangers will delight in sharing their knowledge of this astounding natural treasure trove of the bushveld and slowly the mysteries of the wild will unfold. Enthralling sightings of elephants, prides of lions as well as a sea of buffalo horns rising from the grass as they lie resting in the growing heat, awaits one. Guests have the opportunity to learn about the history of Jock and the area with the cultural heritage of the bushveld.

Rates are inclusive of two game drives per day, one in the late afternoon and one early in the morning, guided wilderness walks, all meals including High Tea before the late afternoon game drive and a unique Boma dinner experience, a selection of house beverages and game drives beverages.

Safari: Morning and evening drives are performed in covered 4x4 Land Cruisers conducted by highly experienced rangers. Traversing through the reserve, the wildlife is sometimes staggering in its diversity.

              The Jock Safari Lodge was a fantastic choice. The service was great, the atmosphere was exceptional and overall, it was just grand. Another point that needs to be looked at, is their internet connection, almost non existent. For business/emergency purposes, it is very important that be able to check email.Overall, everything was more than we expected and we would love to go back and take the kids.
