Jock Safari Lodge - bushveld alive with possibility
Step into the welcoming arms of a luxurious lodge with character, people with heart and the bushveld alive with possibility. Welcome to Jock Safari Lodge situated in the Big Five area of the Kruger National Park (KNP).
Before the turn of the century, the lure of gold brought men from all corners of the globe 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's in this area that Jock Safari Lodge is based with its 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 with the area noted for its diversity in game, particularly the BIG FIVE.
Jock Safari Lodge incorporates the romance and elegance of the past colonial era, reflecting its unique style of indigenous Zulu and Shangaan cultures. The Lodge is situated in the southern area of the KNP at the confluence of the Mitomeni and Biyamiti rivers, half way between Skukuza and Malelane. It's approximately 35 km to the Skukuza airstrip and 150km to the Kruger International Mpumulanga airport in Nelspruit.
Magnificent trees and abundant bird life surround the Lodge. From here, two track roads take you into 6,000ha of exclusive traversing in the first private concession set in over 2 million hectares of KNP. Easily accessible by road, the lodge is just over five hours drive from Johannesburg or one hour from Skukuza and two hours from Kruger International airports.
While the Lodge is located in a malaria area, incidents are very low. Guests are however advised to take precaution.
