    Jock Safari Lodge

    Nestled in the lush vegetation in the southwestern corner of the Kruger National Park, Jock Safari Lodge is home to 12 thatched suites and one private villa. In an extraordinary combination of old- world charm, African rusticity, and eco-luxury, Jock Safari Lodge invites guests of all ages on a safari experience that is equally as opulent as it is adventurous. Every morning and late afternoon guests set off into the wilderness, either by open safari vehicle or on foot for a walking safari.

    The lodge has exclusive riverbed traversing rights ensuring you an exclusive and uncrowded experience with exquisite photographic opportunities.  Expert safari guides have comprehensive knowledge of the fauna, flora, and birdlife and can share intriguing stories of the land and its wild inhabitants with you. Your guides will take you out to sip sundowners at dusk from a breathtaking vantage point. Here, you overlook the reserve as skies turn crimson and the sun fades behind the horizon.

    Kids on safari can have their own adventure at the kids’ club with arts, crafts, and mini-chef activities. They can enjoy game drives with their parents in closed vehicles, prioritizing everyone’s safety without missing any adventures. When not adventuring in the wild guests can relax around the lodges main pool, enjoy a round of golf in the bush at the nearby Leopard Creek, or soak in indulgent spa relaxation at the Pilgrim’s Rest Retreat. The spa features a steam room, sauna, and hydrotherapy bath. End the day off with a pre- dinner drink at the upstairs bar or nightcap around the firepit under glistening African skies.
