My girlfriend and I spent this past weekend at Jock's and the experience with forever be etched in our minds. The staff and amenities are top-notch. Upon check-in, we were greeted with a cold glass of fresh apple juice. We were given an awe-inspiring tour of the place and once we got to our private room, we were stunned by how pristine the place was. An outdoor shower, plunge pool, private viewing deck (I took a hot shower in the rain and saw water buck in the distance), comfortable bed, stocked fridge, spacious bathtub...the amenities were unbelievable. Did I mention the game drives? Our ranger, Ethianne, was very knowledgable and an overall great guy. He went above and beyond his duty to ensure our time at Jock's was outstanding. My profession is a chef and I must admit, the food was ambrosial. I wish I could work there. We had a lot of delicious, traditional food and the setting was spectacular. We had a braai for lunch and we saw three rhino's, 5 cape buffalo, then a herd of about 35+ elephants came trampling through. I'll never forget it. We made a lot of nice friends during the safari as well...shout out to Burt and Barb, Albert and Nadia, and Rangi and Mina...what an amazing weekend! I would go back to Jock's in a heartbeat. -Brian and Debra
