Jock Safari Lodge
Surrounded by the lush wilderness of the Kruger National Park, Jock’s Safari Lodge is made up of twelve stylishly designed thatched suites, nestled amongst the trees of a 6,000 hectare private concession for an authentic safari experience.
With just twelve rooms, the lodge feels personal and offers a high level of privacy
Elegantly designed thatched suites are a perfect retreat, with plunge pools, decking and views over the riverbed and bush beyond
Morning and evening game drives in 4x4s open up the exceptional wildlife viewing opportunities of Kruger, with excellent guides
Wilderness Walks take you closer to the smaller inhabitants of the park
Tucked away in the Kruger National Park, Jock’s Safari Lodge is designed to blend seamlessly into its surrounds, with just twelve thatched suites spread along the riverbed, each shielded by reeds and trees to create a private oasis. Along a series of winding walkways, the main lodge offers a focal point to the accommodation, with a comfortable lounge, library, exercise room and sauna.
The tastefully appointed suites draw their influence from the natural beauty of the park, with neutral tones, romantic beds draped in diaphanous netting and a low-key elegance throughout the decor. Private decks complete with plunge pool and views of the riverbed and wilderness beyond create the sense of being truly ensconced in nature.
Meals can be taken in the privacy of your own room, or with other guests in the main dining area, surrounded by trees and warmed by the fire pit. The cosy lounge is an ideal retreat after a day’s activity, perfect for sitting back with a sundowner to discuss the day’s sightings with fellow guests.
To discover the staggering diversity of wildlife contained within the Kruger National Park, morning and evening game drives can be taken from Jock’s, offering the chance to catch sight of vast herds of buffalo, elephants wallowing in the watering holes and predators such as hyenas, leopard and lion. Get closer to the smaller flora and fauna on foot with a Wilderness Walk, and allow the experienced guides of the camp to bring this rich ecosystem to life.
