Jock Safari Lodge
Mix a little romance of the 19th century, luxurious modern day amenities, exotic wildlife of South Africa, and watch as the magic of the Lodge begins to unfold.
The Beautiful Wilderness
Situated in legendary Kruger Park, the wilderness takes on a completely new meaning as concrete cities and scattered noise and bustle are left behind. The primitive-looking lodge is situated on 6,000 hectare that has 2 flowing rivers and untouched nature as a backdrop. The Zulu and Shangaan cultures are prominent in this area which make this vacation experience even more exciting.
Since 1923, visitors have frequented Kruger Park in tours or to take part in big game hunts. The Big Five now enjoy the area along with cheetah, zebra and others in addition to over 350 species of birds. In 1926, a national park was formed to protect the wildlife, birds and beauty of the natural habitat.
Feast on the Uncommon
The Lodge is anything but common. The thatched exterior may give the impression of a primitive dwelling, but as soon as you enter your room, all qualms are settled. 19th century upholstered chairs with gleaming wood desks and tables accent the space that features an oversized bed. Victorian free-standing tubs are included in each bathroom, along with outdoor showers. The private patio, or Sala, gives you a chance to view the river and any wildlife that happen to be stopping for a sip of water.
Words from Past Tourists
Reviews prove that service and hospitality is first and foremost at Lodge. The tour guides that are in charge of walking safaris and game drives are knowledgeable and eager to answer questions. After a day of tours, birding, or hiking, relax at the pool or spa to finish the day. A restaurant that has a selection of cuisine is also onsite and has received rave reviews. The atmosphere of Kruger Park is also kid-friendly and will provide an unforgettable experience for the kids.
Although Kruger Park sets in northeast South Africa, Jock Safari Lodge has taken many precautions to keep visitors safe from the dangers that are associated with the natural creatures that share this space. Enjoy the subtropical temperatures while in the midst of exotic vegetation. Experience the crocodiles along the river's edge and other protected species as they interact in a natural habitat. Jock Safari Lodge offers an enlightening experience that will never be found in a book and without giving up the luxuries expected of a well-deserved vacation.
