Fodor's Expert Review Jock Safari Lodge
Jock Safari Lodge, Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa Fodor's Choice
This lodge, one of South Africa’s loveliest, is set among 14,826 acres of private concession in southwest Kruger—the park's first with game-rich traversing rights as a result—with twelve comfortable, spacious suites, each with a plunge pool and stunning views over the Biyamiti River. Had Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, author of the famous Jock of the Bushveld and his canine superstar still been alive, they would have highly approved of today’s camp, which is authentic and steeped in history. The food, service, and rangers are superb, but the game-viewing is spectacular—think night drives in Kruger. The nearby Fitzpatrick’s Camp is better for families and intergenerational trips.
- riverfront location with private viewing deck
- authentic safari experience
- busy in season
- no tracker to assist the field guide (as is the case at other private lodges outside Kruger)
