Jock Safari Lodge
Who does not know the book "Jock of the Bushveld". Sir Percy Fitzpatrick wrote the classic during the gold rush in South Africa. You can now experience a part of that book on your own at this wildlife game reserve. Our 15 air conditioned & luxury suites offer many facilities that always exceed the expectations of our safari guests. Each of the suites a deck has views of the nearby river. Even from the bathroom or the outdoor shower you have maginficent views of the surrounding. The wood deck or outdoor patio has a small pool, where can have a dip after an exciting safari tour. Our accommodations offer the luxury of the modern era, but also embody the breath of the past. Our kitchen is famous far beyond the borders of the Kruger Park. You can expect first-class food and a good selection South African wines. There is also the possibility to relax at our very own spa that we like to call the Welness Temple. Facials and several full body massages are being offered.
Kruger National Park Game Lodge - Safari Camp
The lodge is located in the southern part of Kruger National Park between the Malelane Gate and Skukzuza. The two rivers flow through Bianiti Mitomeni and the private game park. Many wild animals cross through our game reserve to reach the nearby waterhole. As such, our safari accommodation is the perfect base for your safari tours and your quest to view the Big 5. Our trained rangers will make sure to track all major animals and that you will learn about the flora and fauna in our area. All safaris are accompanied by rangers and open 4x4 vehicles are used. Through constant radio contact with the Lodge, we quickly learn where the most popular wildlife is currently located. At lunchtime you can relax by the pool or take a walking safari with our rangers. Explore the rich bird life, read footprints of wild animals and learn more about the flora of the area or the history of the game park.
At 5.00 o'clock in the morning you wake up with coffee and small pastries and may participate in the morning safari. Your ranger will drive an open 4x4 vehicle and pick you up to begin the great Big 5 safari. Early in the morning it is cold and warm clothing is needed. On a safari tour you will sometimes need a lot of patience but in the end one always sees African wildlife. We return to the lodge around 9.00 o'clock where you can have a warm breakfast and relax at our facilities to be ready for the next safari in the afternoon
After breakfast or at lunchtime you can participate in a walking safari. Here you will experience the African bush at close range. Your Ranger is armed and will report more about the flora and fauna. With luck you will see elephants, giraffes, rhinos, zebras and antelopes. You will also get to see the great bird life of the Kruger Park. Each walking safari is different and is always good for surprises.
At 4pm we will take our next trip into the wilderness and our rangers will pick you up. We take a long tour and watch many wild animals. During the sunset, you get a drink and can enjoy the special tranquility of the park with the changing colors of the setting sun. Around 9 pm you will reach the main lodge again where you can look forward to dinner. Experience the stars of Africa under the open sky and with luck you will see shooting stars.
