9.6 out of 10

The first private lodge in the park, Jock rests at the confluence of the Biyamiti and Mitomeni Rivers within an exclusive 60-sq-km conservancy. The 12 rooms (some adjoining for families) all have plunge pools and river views. It's something of a Kruger classic, and the 12 rooms, classically styled, remain outstanding.

Quick description via

This award-winning lodge borders Kruger National Park at the confluence of the Mitomeni and Biyamiti Rivers. It offers private Big Five safari tours, and has a sauna and hydrotherapy spa. The secluded thatched suites at Jock Main Lodge have private plunge pools and luxury bathrooms. The elegant furnishings blend colonial-era antiques with Zulu and Shangaan artworks. Staying at Little Jock is like having your very own bush lodge. Overlooking the river, this elegant accommodation has 3 suites, and includes the personal services of a chef, waitress and ranger. Jock Safari Lodge occupies a 6000-hectare bushveld site, filled with diverse wildlife. Within short walking distance are some of the oldest Bushmen rock artworks in Africa, approximately 3000 years old. It is approximately 35 km to the Skukuza airstrip and 150 km to the Kruger Airport in Nelspruit. Wi-Fi is free in public areas, and free on-site car parking is available.

Important information

Please inform Jock Safari Lodge in advance of your expected arrival time. You can use the Special Requests box when booking, or contact the property directly with the contact details provided in your confirmation.
The lodge is approximately 45 minutes to an hour from the Malelane gate and therefore we recommend that flights to / from Kruger Mpumalanga Airport (KMIA/MQP) are booked to: arrive before 14h30 on day of arrival and depart after 10h00 on day of departure.

The camp is situated half way between Skukuza and Malelane gates approximately 35 km in both directions with only 3 km of dirt road. Due to the rules and regulations of the Kruger National Park, nobody is allowed on any Kruger National Park roads during the period of gates being closed. Therefore guests must be at their destination by the time the gates close.

Jock is located in a malaria area, but incidents are very low. Guests are advised to take precaution though.
