Many thanks for taking the time to review Fitzpatrick's Lodge at Jock Safari Lodge. We are delighted you experienced a stay we wish for all our guests! We hope to welcome you home to Fantastic Ftizies again in the future.
We have just returned from three days at JSL and had hoped that this would be the highlight of our trip. We were not disappointed. It proved to be a fantastic three days with tremendously varied game drives and superb food, service and facilities.
Skukuza for sure since runway extended and scheduled flights go there from all over. Jock will send a cruiser to pick you up and your safari experience begins as soon as you leave the airport. Time back to the lodge can vary... More
Skukuza for sure since runway extended and scheduled flights go there from all over. Jock will send a cruiser to pick you up and your safari experience begins as soon as you leave the airport. Time back to the lodge can vary depending on sightings but generally about an hour. We have visited the Jock each year since 2012 and can hand on heart say, it is a magical place. We are due to visit again this year for a longer stint as usually do 5-7 days but want more and will be celebrating a special wedding anniversary there too! You will love it

When we entered the gate at the Kruger National park the entry fee was R82.00 per person. You need to specify that you are booked at Jock, or they will charge you more - I think. it's only once that you pay and then you stay inside the park until departure so we did not pay a daily fee. I unfortunately don't know about the best bag to travel. We had hard cases and it was fine for the internal flights
