Positioned in the south-western corner of the world-renowned Kruger National Park, lies the 6 000 hectare Jock of the Bushveld Concession area. Fitzpatrick’s Lodge is just a kilometer away from the main Jock Safari Lodge and depicts an intimate atmosphere that's ideally suited to families or small groups.
In the late 19th century, the enticement of gold brought men from all corners of the world to South Africa. Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, the author of the animal classic, Jock of the Bushveld, was one of these pioneers. The lodge, named after the charismatic author, offers privacy, exclusivity, personalized service and an authentic safari experience in a pristine wilderness.
Fitzpatrick's Lodge boasts three opulent Suites, each with a king-size bed or twin beds, en-suite bathroom with outdoor shower, air conditioning, minibar, hairdryer, tea & coffee making facilities, in-room safe, overhead fan, and a private viewing deck. Two of the three rooms cater for a maximum of two adults and two children per room. Fitzpatrick’s can accommodate a maximum of six adults and four children.
The lodge can be booked exclusively and includes the services of a personal chef and game ranger. Menus are personalized to suit your needs.
The lodge facilities include a rock swimming pool, lounge with television and library, second lounge with fireplace, complimentary Wi-Fi, and tea and espresso machine.
The Kruger National Park is home to an abundance of wildlife including the famous Big Five. Other species to be seen include giraffe, cheetah, African civet, wild dog, hippo, hyena, jackal and various species of antelope to name but a few. The Kruger is a bird mecca with over 400 bird species recorded, including the lilac breasted roller, African hoopoe, grey heron, and Kingfisher.
Activities offered at the lodge include early morning and late afternoon open-vehicle game drives that are led by professional guides, guided bush walks that explore the fauna, flora and smaller creatures of the African bush, golfing at the nearby Leopard Creek golf course (additional cost), and spa treatments offered at the Pilgrims Rest Retreat located at Jock Safari Lodge.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
