Luxury Lodges at Jock
Main Jock: Twelve individual thatched suites, screened by lush trees & reed walls.
Fitzpatrick’s Lodge at Jock: With only 3 suites, will ensure that personal service is always a priority.
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 we offer is unchanged from these early times. It is in an area noted for its diversity in game, particularly the BIG FIVE.
Jock Safari Lodge incorporates the romance & elegance of the past colonial era, & reflects in its unique style the indigenous Zulu & Shangaan cultures.
This luxurious lodge is situated in the southern area of the Kruger National Park at the confluence of the Mitomeni & Biyamiti rivers, half way between Skukuza & Malelane. It is approximately 35 km to the Skukuza airstrip & 150km to the Kruger International Mpumulanga airport in Nelspruit.
Magnificent trees & an abundance of bird life surround the Lodge. From here our two track roads take you into 6000 ha of exclusive traversing in the first private concession set in over 2 million hectares of Kruger National Park.
