Twelve individual thatched suites, screened by lush trees and reed walls, assuring guests utmost luxurious privacy, creating an exceptional experience of gracious old world elegance surrounded by unspoilt wilderness. Each suite, with queen or twin beds enveloped in a canopy of voluptuous white netting, has its own personal “sala” (thatched viewing deck), plunge pool, romantic victorian ball and claw bath, his and her vanities and outdoor shower.

The suites have been built overlooking the rivers and offer breath-taking river bed frontage, bushveld vistas and game viewing. Each suite is also fully equipped with five star amenities such as air-conditioning, fans, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar and digital safe.

Fitzpatrick's Lodge at Jock
With only three suites, Fitzpatrick's Lodge at Jock is the perfect private enclave for small groups, families and individuals seeking to unwind amidst the natural beauty of the Kruger National Park. The elegant lodge assures guests a serene and secluded stay designed in pure harmony with that of the natural surroundings.

Each of the three luxurious suites are equipped with their own viewing deck, indoor or outdoor showers and guest amenities. While the dining and entertainment area offers both alfresco and indoor dining facilities allowing guests the unique opportunity to experience the gracious style of old world elegance surrounded by unspoilt wilderness.

Fitzpatrick's Lodge at Jock suites boast beautiful views into the unspoilt Kruger bushveld and guests can also relax in the comforts of the central lounge overlooking the banks of the Biyamiti River. This new lodge can either be booked as a whole lodge with its own personal chef & game ranger or as individual suites.

Additional Information
Rates are inclusive of two game drives per day, one in the late afternoon and one early in the morning, guided wilderness walks, all meals including High Tea before the late afternoon game drive and a unique Boma dinner experience, a selection of house beverages and game drives beverages.


Game Drives & Walks
Morning and evening drives are performed in covered 4x4 Land Cruisers conducted by highly experienced rangers. Traversing through the reserve, the wildlife is sometimes staggering in its diversity. Enthralling sightings of elephants, a sea of buffalo horns rising from the grass as they lie resting in the growing heat as well as prides of lions, awaits one. En route back to the lodge after the evening game drive , nocturnal animals such as leopard, hyena and lion are often seen.

Flora & Fauna
Personally assigned rangers will delight in sharing their knowledge of this astounding natural treasure trove of the bushveld and slowly the mysteries of the wild unfold.
With the Kruger National Park being so vast it naturally has a tremendous botanic diversity. Simplistically the Kruger National Park can be divided into 16 macro ecozones. The northern half of the park, north of the Olifants River is predominantly mopane veld, while south of the Olifants River the ecozones are thornveld. There are 404 tree species in the park. The sheer wonder of Mother Nature at work in this microcosm makes one eager to experience and understand more and to experience untouched Paradise in its pure form.

For the avid birdwatcher, the lodge is surrounded by an abundant species of bird that can be regularly seen on the concession including raptors such as the Martial, Tawny and Fish Eagles as well as Steppe Buzzards.

Rock Art
Throughout the concession, rock art sites dating back more than 3 000 years are found depicting the spiritual beliefs and lives of the San.

With the absence of artificial light, the stargazing at Jock Safari Lodge is phenomenal and amongst the best in Southern Africa.

Children Activities
We offer a variety of arts, crafts and games as well as outdoor activities including junior ranger training and night walks within the camp.
