    The staff and our ranger, Jan, were incredible. We were so spoiled for the entire duration of our stay and felt like part of the family. Each day, we saw new and exciting things on safari and learned so much.

    The fine print
    Must-know information for guests at this property

    The lodge is approximately 45 minutes to an hour from the Malelane gate and therefore it is recommended that flights to / from Kruger Mpumalanga Airport (KMIA/MQP) are booked to arrive before 2:30 pm on day of arrival and depart after 10 am on day of departure.

    The camp is half way between Skukuza and Malelane gates, approximately 22 miles in both directions with only 2 miles of dirt road. Due to the rules and regulations of the Kruger National Park, nobody is allowed on any Kruger National Park roads during the period of gates being closed. Therefore guests must be at their destination by the time the gates close.

    Jock is located in a malaria area, but incidents are very low. However, guests should still take precautions.

    Please inform Jock Safari Lodge of your expected arrival time in advance. You can use the Special Requests box when booking, or contact the property directly using the contact details in your confirmation.
