Day 1

Arrive Jock Safari Lodge

On arrival you will be met and transferred to your private game lodge where you will be made to feel extra welcome. Check in and (time permitting) spend a few hours at leisure. This afternoon, depart on a safari drive in an open Land Rover with your game ranger. Your ranger is your host for the duration of your stay and he will take care of your every need whilst sharing his intimate knowledge of the wild. Sipping sundowners under an African sky somehow "finishes off" the whole day's experience.

Location: 

Jock has breathtaking topography and 2 pristine rivers originating within the borders of the Kruger National Park with no alien vegetation in the rivers. The rivers flow only if there is enough rainfall.

The concept of Jock Safari Lodge was born by the descendants of the Sir Percy Fitzpatrick and Niven Family. They used the funds of the trust of Sir Fitzpatrick, to build the lodge in the area close to where the history of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick & his dog Jock, took place. The Southern boundry is the old Voortrekker road, which was the transport route for supplies from the Delego bay which is now Maputo, up to the gold fields at Pilgrims Rust areas. The Jock concession is the exact side profile of Jock the dog.

Accommodation: 

Twelve individual thatched suites, screened by lush trees and reed walls, offer guests utmost luxurious privacy, creating a unique experience of gracious old world elegance surrounded by unspoilt wilderness. 

All the suites are named after places of interest in the tale of “Jock of the Bushveld” - the treacherous Pettigrew’s Road, the trading posts of Delagoa Bay and Komatipoort. 
Each suite, with queen or twin beds enveloped in a canopy of voluptuous white netting, has its own personal “sala” (thatched viewing deck), plunge pool, romantic Victorian ball and claw bath, his and her vanities and outdoor shower.

The suites have been built overlooking the rivers and offer breathtaking river bed frontage, bushveld vistas and game viewing. Each suite is also fully equipped with 5 star amenities such as air-conditioning, fans, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar and safe.

Activities: 

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.
