My wife and I, and our three grown sons, spent 3 nights at Jock Safari Lodge in January and it simply could not have been better. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable and each had its own private deck, plunge pool and lapa which made hanging out in mid day very comfortable. The food was very good and plentiful... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful and always attentive. Our ranger Dumi was very accomodating on safaris and made every effort... More

My partner and I included a safari as part of a first trip to South Africa. In every single respect it exceeded our expectations and was one of the best places we have ever stayed. The accommodation is superb - we gasped with delight when shown around our own lodge and this sense of being somewhere really special just went... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon - it was amazing! A private pick up from the airport had been arranged and we had drinks on arrival. We were just in time to take the afternoon/evening safari drive of the day which was brilliant. The staff are the most friendly people you will meet, nothing is too much trouble,... More

My wife and I started our honeymoon with a 4 night stay at jock. We loved every minute of it! The lodge itself is absolutely fantastic, the rooms are great and private enough to make it feel like your the only guests there. The food and service is nothing short of extraordinary. At jock they make you feel like family,... More

We had a fantastic stay at Jock Safari Lodge in October 2011. It was our honeymoon and we were made to feel very special. The place is just beautiful - you feel very remote and close to nature.
