The private rooms are excellent, and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful through the entire stay. Our guys, Lazarus, was excellent and made the trip even more fulfilling. The meals were excellent and the evening dinners completed, busy, but exciting...

We loved our room and in particular having air-conditioning helped in the heat of summer in the Kruger. Very comfy and the room was clean and we loved the design and layout. The service from the staff in the camp was superb and being met by the manager, Louis, on our arrival was special. Our specialist guide, Estiaan, was incredible...

We loved Jock from the moment we arrived - it was blistering hot and the WiFi room is air conditioned! We felt spoiled from the start by Busi, Lee Anne and Lazarus. The lodge is rife with nice little surprises like the variety of beverages provided at the end of game drives. The game drives were simply fabulous, and Micah...

Our unforgettable experience and stay at the luxurious JOCK SAFARI LODGE. ...in the heart of the Kruger National Park...was un-matchable. Living among these animals and other creatures in their natural habitat was an experience that has to be lived. No travel guide can actually capture the reality of such personal experience.
