JOCK SAFARI LODGE

Jock Safari Lodge is named after local legend, Jock of the Bushveld, the canine hero of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick’s famous story set during the gold rush era. With 6000 ha of exclusive traversing rights within the Kruger National Park, Jock offers excellent Big Five game viewing, daily game drives and wilderness walks. The newly refurbished lodge retains the timeless style and elegance of a classic safari lodge, paying homage to its rich history and heritage, with the addition of modern comforts and conveniences. At the main lodge, 12 secluded thatched suites offer privacy and uninterrupted views of the riverbed. All suites offer extensive private decks, an outdoor Victorian bath and shower, as well as a plunge pool and an enclosed sala (day bed) for daydreaming and sleep-outs. The private camp, Fitzpatrick’s at Jock welcomes children and caters for small parties and families with three luxurious suites, including a family suite.
