We spent the first of 3 weeks of our honeymoon here and it was amazing. Our ranger, Mika, was very knowledgeable and gave a great lesson in poo which was far more interesting than you would think and his tracking skills are unbelievable even in the dark. The food was to delicious. Thank you to all the kitchen staff every... More

If you plan to visit the Kruger National Park and stay in a lodge you will not be disappointed at Jock. The staff do their very best to make your stay memorable and they succeed admirably. The accommodation is five star, the food is nicely prepared and presented and the guide assigned to us did more than could be wished... More

We were fortunate enough to stay here ...rooms, service, staff,safari experience were all flawless. Mosquito netted beds quelled our skirmish ness with mosquitoes, but from the warm welcome to the tear worthy farewell, the entire staff was top notch! My mom grew ill while there from the long trip and she was genuinely cared for and we felt we could... More

If you are considering a safari there can not be a better lace to do it from. The bedrooms are brilliant from the roll top bath to the four poster bed. The viewing platform outside with its double day bed was just as comfortable , the plunge pool enabled us to cool down. The rangers were outstanding in their efforts... More

Stayed here on our honeymoon for 4 nights early August, and had an amazing time. Room was amazing, spacious and very clean. Food was faultless, soooooo much of it we were both stuffed for days after leaving. As honeymooners treats we had a half bottle of sparkling wine, a hot bath with candles and petals ready for us on our... More

Here is a superb realistically priced 5 star Safari Lodge. All expected Lodge amenities were available and the Rangers did a superb job in getting us to sightings of the BIG Five, as we all know the dependence on this is a little bit of luck as well. Leopard and Lion sightings were great, it was mating time (the animals... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in May (sorry for the late writeup!). The staff and accomodation were excellent and the food was amazing, be prepared to put on half a stone in 3 days!. We were taken on 5 safaris in total (2 morning and 3 afternoon). The rangers were brilliant, there were only 4 people in our jeep... More

We stayed at Jock Safari Lodge for a week in August 2014. The level of care and hospitality offered by all of its staff is exemplary. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff are extremely friendly. The food was out of this world and I still miss high tea. Be prepared to put on weight! We celebrated our wedding... More

Jocks is in a perfect private spot inside Kruger with access to its own concession ( lots of land where only it's jeeps can roam ) Without wanting to ruin any surprises the safari starts at the airport so have your camera ready The highlight of this place is definitely the rangers who take you out on the two daily...

Location, Rangers, Game Drives, Staff, Service, Facilities all excellent. This was by far the best Safari we have done and being located within the Kruger itself, it has to be the 'Go To' lodge to experience the Kruger at it's best. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the situation of the 12 Lodges is second-to-none. The only area The... More
