Jock Safari Lodge Star Star Star Star Star

Exclusive Safari Lodge

Every sound, scent, footprint or broken blade of grass is a sign waiting to be interpreted and understood. Before the turn of the century, the lure of gold brought men from all corners of the world to Southern Africa. Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, author of the animal classic, Jock of the bushveld was one of these. They passed through some of Africa's most scenic untamed wilderness.

It is in this area that Jock Safari Lodge is based with our southern boundary being the old wagon route from Delgoa Bay into the gold fields of the interior. Today the wilderness experience offered is unchanged from these early times. It is in an area noted for its diversity in game, particularly the Big Five.

Jock Safari Lodge offers two, five star luxury lodges, namely the original Jock Safari Lodge and Little Jock. These two lodges operate independently, each with a full staff compliment, chef and host. Dinner is alternated between the in and out door facilities, weather permitting.

Game Drives and Walks

Morning and evening drives are performed in covered 4x4 Landrovers conducted by highly experienced rangers. Traversing through the reserve, the wildlife is sometimes staggering in its diversity. Enthralling sightings of elephants, a sea of buffalo horns rising from the grass as they lie resting in the growing heat as well as prides of lions, awaits one. At dusk, a vantage point is chosen overlooking one of the many breathtaking vistas of the Kruger National Park. Sundowners are enjoyed while tales of the bush are told and a glimpse of what this unique wilderness has to offer is seen while being entranced by the ever changing colours of the sky as the sun slips into the timeslot of tomorrow. En route back to the lodge, nocturnal animals such as leopard, hyena and lion are often seen. Walking Safari's are encouraged, after a hearty breakfast, moving through the veld enjoying vistas of unsurpassed beauty and discovering one's place in the cycle of nature. The diversity of fauna and flora in this unique concession truly comes alive when viewed on foot.

Birdwatching

For the avid birdwatcher, abundant species of bird are regularly seen on the concession including raptors such as the Martial, Tawny and Fish Eagles as well as Steppe Buzzards. A wide variety of Bushveld Birds are spotted from the comfort of ones room or whilst lying next to the Rock Pool. Most commonly seen are Hornbills, Starlings, Boubou's, Shrikes and Woodpeckers to name but a few. The tranquil atmosphere at the Lodge allows for unique birding opportunities as man slows down, finding the rhythm of nature and begins to truly observe.
