Jock Main Lodge
Untamed, untouched, unforgettable… Jock Safari Lodge is nestled where the Mitomeni and Biyamiti rivers flow as one, situated in the southwestern corner of the Kruger National Park. The lodge offers 6 000 hectares of exclusive traversing rights in an area of the park which is celebrated for its Big Five game viewing.
Jock Safari Lodge is carefully screened by lush trees and reed walls, the 12 individual thatched rooms at Jock Safari Lodge, impart a sense of aloneness and oneness with the landscape.
Morning and evening drives are performed in covered 4×4 Landrovers conducted by highly experienced rangers in the legendary Kruger National Park.
Other activities include game walks, birdwatching, stargazing, visits to rock art sites and spa treatments at the Prilgrims Rest Relaxation Retreat.
Why we like it here
Child-friendly (Children 0 – 5 years old) are taken on game drives in a closed vehicle whereas children from 6 to 11 (subject to certain conditions) join adults on the normal game drives conducted in open vehicles.
Relive one of South Africa’s cultural heritages through the wonderful story of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, author of the animal classic, Jock of the Bushveld. Original mementoes are on display at the Main Lodge.
There is a range of activities available to enhance your African safari experience! Game drives, Wilderness Walks, birdwatching, spa treatments and golf at the renowned Leopard’s Creek Golf Course.
Things to be aware of
For families or small groups, we recommend staying at Fitzpatrick’s at Jock. The lodge offers three perfectly appointed rooms that caters more for children.
