We loved our stay at Jocks. Our guide Lazarus was amazing and incredibly experienced at spotting the Big 5, tiny birds and snakes, eagles, and other wildlife. The food was great and service was excellent all around. We hope to come back soon with our families.

This is an amazing hotel, delicious food and drink is all included and the service is friendly but exemplary. On arrival we were on a game drive within the hour and saw the big 5 in one go as well as lots of other animals, birds and reptiles. Our ranger was called Lazarus and he made our stay and drives fun and very interesting and informative. He went over and above what you would expect and always found us different things to see every day. As this lodge has it's own grounds of several hectares you are able to view the game in privacy from all other tourists, though you do go out into Kruger park as well. I couldn't recommend the hotel enough and the game spotting was unbelievable, with lions, elephants, rhinoceros, giraffe, hyenas, wild dogs, zebra etc all within a couple of meters from your vehicle.

Beautiful place with very private setting for each guest. A very memorable safari experience for us as we celebrated our 25th anniversary. From Shelley to the staff at the restaurant to our exceptional Ranger - Jan Kriel, 3 days we will never forget. Game drives were fun and made extra special by Jan who is passionate, full of energy and ready to answer any questions. Jan drove us far out to see animals but we saw the Big 5 by our 3rd game drive. We also saw the Big 5 on day 3. I would summarize it with “WOW”
