Jock Safari Lodge

Jock Safari Lodge is situated in 6,000 hectares of private land within the southern region of the Kruger National Park.  

Nestled at the confluence of the seasonal Mitomeni and Biyamiti Rivers, the Lodge is built on legend and set under a canopy of Jackelberry trees overlooking the river.

Twelve individual thatched rooms, carefully screened by lush trees and reed walls, impart a sense of oneness with the landscape. The twin or king bedded rooms feature en-suite bathrooms with a free-standing bath and outdoor shower, air-conditioning and ceiling fan, hairdryer, private minibar, tea and coffee facilities, small private sala (outdoor day bed) with river views and a private plunge pool. Taking advantage of the bushveld views the double story thatched communal area includes a loft lounge and bar, indoor and outdoor dining facilities, library with television, DVD player, WiFi, a relaxation retreat with steam room, sauna and exercise room, a pool surrounded by a wide viewing deck and a boutique gift shop.

Safari Experience

Activities at Jock Safari Lodge include morning and afternoon game drives and guided walks after breakfast (on request).

At dusk, a vantage point is chosen overlooking one of the many breathtaking vistas of the Kruger National Park. Sundowners are enjoyed while tales of the bush are told and a glimpse of what this unique wilderness has to offer is seen while being entranced by the ever changing colours of the sky as the sun slips into the time slot of tomorrow. En route back to the lodge, nocturnal animals such as leopard, hyena and lion are often seen.

Walking Safari’s are encouraged, after a hearty breakfast, moving through the veld enjoying vistas of unsurpassed beauty and discovering one’s place in the cycle of nature. The diversity of fauna and flora in this unique concession truly comes alive when viewed on foot.

The highlight of a day in paradise is a guided walk to view some of the rock art that abounds in and around Jock Safari Lodge.

With the absence of artificial light, the stargazing at Jock Safari Lodge is phenomenal and amongst the best in Southern Africa.

Wildlife & Birdlife

Traversing through the reserve, the wildlife is sometimes staggering in its diversity. Enthralling sightings of elephants, a sea of buffalo horns rising from the grass as they lie resting in the growing heat as well as prides of lions, awaits one.
