Jock Safari Lodge

Ryan Wilcox

We really enjoyed Jock Safari lodge and we saw so much wildlife and really enjoyed the location. We had been on safari lots of times in Africa and when we arrived at Jock our guide asked us what we wanted to see and since we have seen most animals on our past safaris I named three difficult things to see - wild dogs, sable antelope and ground hornbill. We ended up seeing all three Christmas morning. It was amazing and even our ranger could not believe we saw all three. The food and accommodations were excellent and the game viewing was amazing

At Jock, they can't go off-road and so the sightings are way more hit or miss. This is something you may want to point out to people coming over to SA. In 5 safaris there, we saw one male lion. We saw tons of zebra, giraffe, elephant, rhino and so fo rth, but the cat sightings were few and far between. Personally, I like the way things work at Sabi better. If one of the guides spots something incredible (lion, leopard or for the lucky ones, cheetah), they are immediately in contact with the other guides and off you go, rushing through the park to see it. This really feels like being on safari - it's fun and let's face it, most of us who come all the way over there really, really want to see some of those cats! In this regard, Jock was pretty disappointing becaus

"Jock Safari Lodge is truly wonderful! Excellent location, the best staff and rangers, and the grounds there are beautiful. We had great luck spotting animals. They are the best in my book!"

Dory Gasorek

Jock Safari was really fun and exhausting. We saw the big 5, plus a black rhino! Our guide was terrific, and again, my mother was treated really well. The location was excellent. The rooms were beautiful and the plunge pool was great in the heat of t he day. The food was good; we enjoyed the Boma.

"We loved Jock. It is very child friendly and Lazarus was our guide and sends his best wishes to you."

Holly Pal

We cannot say enough good things about Jock's Safari Lodge and it will always have a special place in our hearts. Our guide (Paddy) took us on some fabulous game drives and we saw all of the Big Five! The staff and other guests were very friendly. Th e chefs were outstanding - we gained several pounds after all those gourmet meals=) They even packed us a breakfast to go on our last day since we had to leave after the morning game drive. The accommodations were quite nice, and my husband felt safe staying at a lodge that was surrounded by an electric fence.
