Traveller Reviews

  • Fitzpatrick camp at Jock is terrific: much higher standard of food and décor than we were expecting for the price (about $400 per person per night). Private cooks, excellent food and lots of extra touches. Plus our ranger was the best spotter we have ever come across in many, many safaris. The rooms are very comfortable: up there with the best lodges, and the combination of private concession and Kruger gives you the big numbers of animals and tremendous variety in the terrain as well. Hard to beat for the price.I rated the food and service at Fitzpatrick a little better than Simbambili. I think the private Fitpatrick camp feels higher end than the main Jock camp, although that has a gym and a spa.

"This wonderful little camp comprising of only 3 suites ensures that great personal service is always the priority of the lodge's friendly staff - truly commendable!"
