I was fortunate to visit Jock in late November, 2013. The highlight of the stay was our guide, Jacob, and the phenomenal tours he guided us on daily. There an abundance of wildlife to be appreciated and Jacob did an amazing job explaining it to us. Not only the Big 5, but smaller animals, birds, plants, reptiles and insects were all pointed out and had heir story told.
The lodge itself is quite nice. This is not a Four Seasons, but the food was better than I expected. The staff was friendly and tried their best to help. There is wifi throughout the hotel, but it was slow at times. The rooms were spacious and private.
