    “TRULY AMAZING”

    My son and I stayed at the Lodge for 3 nights. Everything about this lodge is fantastic. Food was brilliant and ALL the staff were so friendly and helpful. This was a long awaited trip and it did not disappoint.
    The Rangers are very knowledgeable and went out of their way to make the safaris a memorable experience.
    I highly recommend Jock Safari Lodge to anyone that is thinking of booking a safari – you will not be disappointed. Thank you Jock Safari Lodge for making my trip top Kruger one of the best experiences of my life.

    “The most amazing and memorable 3 days - truly fabulous in every way!”

    From the minute we walked into Jock we knew we were going to love it. Truly authentic in every way and such wonderful people made our stay great. I have spent 3 of the most memorable days ever with my children aged 8 and 9. They were perfect ages and their level of interest, amazement and enjoyment along with their love of animals is something I won’t forget. Our ranger, Jacob was informative, fun and willing to help us find all that we wanted to find. We spent 3 nights here and as soon as we arrived at 3.30 we were told to get ready and we would be out on safari at 4. The first night didn’t disappoint. It’s a busy few days with early starts (a 5am wake up call) but you need to get out early to see everything. We got to see everything and more – the big 5 multiple times and the rangers all communicate with each other to make sure we all get to see everything. After a busy morning (cold but lovely big blankets in the safari vehicles and we took hot water bottles that were provided every night in our rooms – a lovely touch) there is plenty of time for rest so I indulged in 2 massages. Hloniphile was my therapist and I have to say I had 2 of the best massages ever. My children went with Jacob to learn our to make toothbrushes and toilet paper in the bush, learn about the difference between black and white rhinos and how you can eat elephant poo!!!! They came back full of knowledge. Then it was lovely to sit and watch the animals go past from the decking of your own room – herds of elephants with their calves, baboons and lots more. Then back out again for an afternoon drive, sunset drinks in the bush and back for a lovely dinner. The food was delicious and the highlight of our trip was a bush breakfast – made us feel so special. I was lucky to have my birthday here and the team here made it very special – a lovely run bath with candles and rose petals when we got back from a cold safari and a cake. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jock. Naomi who in charge of the resort on a day to day basis couldn’t do enough to make sure guests were having a great time. This place is truly special – we’d love to come back and our children don’t want to leave this morning!

    “Fabulous safari experience”

    My husband and I stayed at Jock safari as recommended by Trailfinders (Barry in Dublin office) and what an experience we had. Our arrival into Kruger was through Skukuza airport which is a delightful place and we were met by our ranger Mayneth. It was relaxing from the moment we landed. On the 45 minute drive to the lodge Mayneth pointed out Impalas, elephants and giraffes. It was an incredible transfer. On arrival at the lodge we were warmly welcomed by Bosi and taken to our accommodation. The lodges are beautifully appointed with the option of sleeping and bathing outside. Each lodge has a plunge pool and complete privacy overlooking the reserve. The game drives were amazing and Mayneth was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. We saw the big 5 on the first drive and continued to see the amazing animals for all of the drives. On our return we were greeted by Mumsy with welcome hot towels and delicious hot chocolate was also available. The food was fabulous in the lodge and we were treated to taste sensations at each meal. We also had treats and drinks during the game drives. This is a wonderful experience and we highly recommend Jock safari lodge for exploring Kruger National Park.

    “Fantastic Experience”

    Jocks surpassed all of our expectations. Although we didn’t get to see any leopards we saw so many other animals and got very close to them to get some great photos. We particularly loved the elephants and had a good long stop on one of the evening drives just sitting quietly amongst a herd of about 20 watching them do their thing. The food was amazing, very plentiful and tasty, especially the soups. As vegetarians we had plenty of choice. The room was extremely comfortable with the day bed for relaxing in the daytime between drives.
    Thank you to all the staff for an amazing stay, particularly Lazarus our guide.
