My adult daughter and I stayed for 3 nights. The staff, game drives, food and accommodations were excellent. We also went to Sabi Sabi which was wonderful, but much more expensive. Everything was perfect and I highly recommend Jock Lodge for a fun, social safari vacation experience. We hope to be able to come back in the future!

If you want to be guaranteed of seeing something then go to a zoo. We had a wonderful...

We recently visited the Jock Safari Lodge for two nights. My only complaint is that we should have stayed longer. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The rooms are very private and well appointed with a private sun deck and plunge pool overlooking the riverbed. The staff think of everything - even making sure you have ice...

The accommodation lodges have very generous spacing inside and include outdoor hot shower; plunge pool to sundeck and...

As soon as you arrive you are warmly greeted and explained the daily itinerary. The walk to my unit and common lounge / restaurant is lovely through the dappled sunlight.
