We stayed for three nights at Jock's and it was a wonderful experience. We very much enjoyed our room, it had amazing outdoor spaces for sitting and relaxing, he most comfortable day bed for a sun-kissed morning nap, and an amazing outdoor shower. Inside, the bed and linens were very comfortable, the bathroom vanity area set up for two people, and a huge tub, long enough for my tall husband to soak without bending his legs.
Wake up calls came at 5:30 with tea, coffee, and light refreshments at 6:00. Safari drive from 6:15 to 9:00, then a delish breakfast of cheeses, meats, fruits, and made-to-order items from the menu. Buffet lunch from noon to 2:30 and tea at 3:00. Safari drive again from 3:30 to 8:00pm and then pre-dinner drinks and then either braai or made-to-order items from the menu. The chefs are amazing.
We also enjoyed the services in the spa. Massages, facials, African scalp rubs. All fantastic and super, super relaxing.
If we return, we would stay again at Jocks.
