Jock Safari lodge is situated in the Big Five area of the Kruger National Park.
Before the turn of the century, the lure of gold brought men from all corners of the world to Southern Africa.
Sir Percy Fitzpatrick , author of the animal classic, Jock of the bushveld was one of these.
They passed through some of Africa's most scenic untamed wilderness.

It is in this area that Jock Safari Lodge is based with our southern boundary being the old wagon route from Delgoa Bay into the gold fields of the interior.

Today the wilderness experience we offer is unchanged from these early times. It is in an area noted for its diversity in game, particularly the BIG FIVE.

This luxurious lodge is situated in the southern area of the KNP at the confluence of the Mitomeni and Biyamiti rivers, half way between Skukuza and Malelane.

It is approximately 35 km to the Skukuza airstrip and 150km to the Kruger International Mpumulanga airport in Nelspruit.

Jock Safari Lodge incorporates the romance and elegance of the past colonial era, and reflects in its unique style the indigenous Zulu and Shangaan cultures. Magnificent trees and an abundance of bird life surround the Lodge.

From here our two track roads take you into 6000 ha of exclusive traversing in the first private concession set in over 2 million hectares of KNP.

The lodge is easily accessible by road, just over 5 hours drive from Johannesburg, or 1 hour Skukuza and 2 hours from Kruger International airports. Jock is located in a malaria area, but incidents are very low. Guests are advised to take precaution though.

Game Drives & Walks Morning and evening drives are performed in covered 4x4 Landrovers conducted by highly experienced rangers.

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.

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 timeslot 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.
