We spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon at Jock Safari Lodge and it was one of the greatest places and experiences of our lives! Friendly staff, walking safari's out into the bush, amarula and poured bubble baths after chilly evening safaris, sundowners in the bush, the Big 5 and then some, glorious private plunge pools and decks, incredible...

Instead of staying at the Lodge, we chose to experience Jock's Explorer Camp. This includes staying at the tented camp set up by Jock's and undertaking morning and afternoon walks over a weekend. There are only three tents, so only a maximum of 6 guests at any one time. During our visit my husband and I were the only guests... More

Jock Safari Lodge is 5-star all the way! From the moment you are greeted at the lobby to the time you leave, your needs are met, if not surpassed. We were lucky enough to be able to travel with a very large party of family and friends and we had a great time! We really enjoyed the drives. Lazarus was... More

We booked into Jock Safari Lodge in the Kruger because it also allowed us to play Leopard Creek Golf Course, the No.1 rated course in South Africa. What a wonderful experience. The Lodge, food, staff and game viewing was exceptional. Louis and all his team made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Ben, our guide, Lazarus,... More

We spent 5 days at this lodge and was by far the best experience of our lives and we are well travelled. We saw all the big five animals daily and much more, you drive twice a day and each drive is different and better than the last. The vehicles were cosy and they supply lovely blankets. Our ranger was... More

The fact we returned in 2014 after superb visits in 2012 & 2013 around the same time of year speaks volumes. Everything about JSL is just perfect. Great staff, fantastic Rangers, awesome food and located in a concession within the Kruger which always delivers safari moments to treasure forever. We will be returning again for sure and hope this can... More

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

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
